    calibre - E-book management

    works for me. Check your package manager for it. In ubuntu or debian

    Code:
    apt-cache policy calibre

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I use calibre on Linux systems myself - works quite well, but remember that a lot of ebooks are DRM-encumbered (encrypted) so you cannot use them except on "approved" devices. When you purchase a DRM'd book, you are only renting it - you don't own it! So, DON'T support publishers who force you to use such cruft.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
