Linux converter for Microsoft .lit files

.lit is a proprietary format, and must be converted using the C-lit application, included in the 'epub-utils' package. It can then be read with the 'fbreader' e-book reader.

To install epub-utils and fbreader, use sudo apt-get epub-utils fbreader

To convert a book file, use lit2epub /path/to/book.lit

To read a converted book, open fbreader and point it to /path/to/book.epub
