The downloaded eBooks are saved in “/Users/[Your Username]/Documents/Digital Editions”, and saved as EPUB format.

Please notice that these EPUB books are all DRM protected, which means you can only read it on apps or eReaders which registered with your Adobe account. You can’t convert it to Mobi or PDF, either.

If you want to remove DRM or convert the DRM-protected EPUB books to other formats, you can check this software, it’s the most easy to use solution as far as I know.
