Re: [dev] What is a good EPUB reader for the Linux terminal (C coded, ncurses)?

Here's my notes on this topic:

convert .mobi (and maybe .epub) files to text
        apt-get libebook-tools-perl
        mkdir foo
        ebook unpack foo
        w3m -dump foo/SOMETHING.html > foo.txt


        open them with fbreader and select everything with the mouse, copy, xclip -o, etc. Helps to s/^/\n/

fbreader is graphical (and horrible) but it doesn't take long to
copy/paste out of it. My goal is usually to get a plain txt file
that I can pipe through espeak.
