Hi All,

epub is not any electronic pub for boozing... ;) Its a e-book file format originated as an open e-book format standard by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF).

These files have .epub file extension.

This post explains how to open books of .epub file format in Debian.

You have 2 readers to read .epub files.

1. FBReader and 2. okular book reader

Use synaptic to search for: fbreader, okular and okular-extra-backends packages. Upon installation you can read the books.

Note that a normal compressed pdf file of around 20Mb file size is less than 10Mb size if its in .epub extension.  :)

Enjoy reading,
Ananth Gouri
