I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on my Macbook with the Core 2 Duo processor

I want to use iBooks Author and as I understand I need to upgrade my OS so I can access the App Store to download iBooks Author.

iBooks Author says it needs 10.6.6 at least.

-- If I upgrade to something above 10.6.6 do I first need to upgrade to 10.6.6?

-- Can I download an upgrade instead of buying physical product?

This is what you need, $29 USD
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.)

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Unfortunately going to Snow Leopard will only get you halfway there and just give you access to the Mac App Store.
iBooks Author requires Lion to install and run, which means further expense for you.

Didn't know that . . . so iBooks Author is Lion only.

I've been looking into to it for my wife, who is still clinging to Snow.
Apparently there is a hack you can do to fool the installer into running on 10.6, but in the end if she still wants iBooks Author we will upgrade her MacBook to Lion.
