How do I open a book after I "purchase" it. I downloaded some free books but haven't been able to open them

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Most ibooks from Apple can only be read in the iBooks app on an iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Apple haven't made a Mac or PC reader for them. You might be able to read some free ibooks in programs such as Calibre (and possibly from publishers such as O'Reilly who I believe don't use DRM on their ibooks), but the majority can only be read in iBooks on an iOS device.
