I document my adventures and problems so that I remember my mistakes, and perhaps you may learn something. I'm not a programmer, nor a computer expert. I'm just a tinkering guy in Milwaukee with a store and three kids to keep me busy.

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
