I downloaded some .epub files from archiveofourown, and opened them with iBooks, so that they're now stored there. I want to back them up onto my PC, just in case I ever mess up my iPod in some way or another, or accidentally delete all my iBooks or something. But they're not purchased, so they don't autimatically sync to my iTunes, and I can't drag and drop them from my iPod into my iTunes, because iTunes won't let me. They're stored only on my iPod, which worries me -- I like to have a copy of the epubs on my devices on my computer, as well, so I can keep track of them more easily. Is there any way this can be done? It's really frustrating and worrying. Thanks.
