    I have searched in all folders in the internal storage of my Android tablet but I don't see where are the downloaded books and apps from Google Play are stored. I also want to know if they can be transferred to an external storage (USB drive or SD card. Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Media that you download using any of the Google Play apps (i.e., Books, Music, Movies) is saved to a protected system directory that you can't access unless you root the device. I presume this is a way of preventing users from distributing copies. In order to download media to the SD card, you need to change the relevant setting within the app and then re-download the media.

    You won't find them. They're there, but they're encrypted (outside of the device encryption). That's done to prevent pirating of the titles.
