How to Hide iCloud Books in iBooks on iPhone, iPad and Mac

It is not a good idea to keep your iBooks open for all; there can be some books you have purchased, and hence, you would like to hide them on your iPhone/iPad from viewing.

During a year, I download lot many iBooks on my iPhone 6, and then I tend to sync those iBooks between Mac and iPhone, simply because I could read the books on a bigger screen. But this poses a risk of getting my iBooks read by somebody else.

Why should I allow anybody to read my books for which I have paid my hard earned bucks? And therefore I learnt how I can hide iCloud books in iBooks. It is quite easy.
