E-Book Reader for Ubuntu Linux - FBReader

An electronic book (e-book, ebook, digital book) is a book publication in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, and produced on, published through, and readable on computers or other electronic devices. Sometimes the equivalent of a conventional printed book, e-books can also be born digital.

FBReader is an e-book reader.
Main features:
 * supports several open e-book formats: fb2, html, chm, plucker, palmdoc, ztxt, tcr (psion text), rtf, oeb, openreader, non-DRM'edmobipocket, plain text, epub, eReader
 * reads directly from tar, zip, gzip, bzip2 archives (you can have several books in one archive)
 * supports a structured view of your e-book collection
 * automatically determines encodings

FBReader Installation:
Open the terminal and type following command:
sudo apt-get install fbreader
After successful installation you can open FBReader from 'dash' or from Gnome menu

If you have fb2, oeb or OpenReader books these will be added automatically to your library if they are in FBReader's book path. The default path depends on the device type, for Desktop Linux it is ~/FBooks:~/Books where "~" is your home directory and ":" separates entries in the path. To update the path, select the options panel icon (crossed tools) and then the General tab

FBReader will remember where it was last time, and come up in the same directory. Only directories and books readable by FBReader will appear. You may need to navigate through directories.
