    Hello guys. I'd like to read my epub books on my DS but from what i see there is no direct way to do it. I've looked a litle into the DS developing tools and ePub format and it doesn't seem to be that difficult to create a homebrew that does just that. So, i'm willing to put the effort into it but only if i see that it would be useful for others.
    In that regard I would like to know your opinions/suggestions.

    PS: it would include also txt reading of course.

    I would be much appreciative. Would there be any way of getting .lit files working as well? Thats a popular file extension and its a chore to reencode them all into .rtf to read on the DS.

    .lit seems a little bit more complicated and i don't know about licensing!
    I guess no one else reads, or they're just happy with DSread (which i love) [​IMG] !

    i use dsreader too but would prefer something that would read txt files sideways on like dslibris but without the need to re-encode everything i also have lots of epubs on my pc that i would like to read but re-encoding them to txt is a slow process

    i am planning to include top to bottom view and sideways view, i will start working on it this weekend.
    anyway, for txt books you have readmore which works sideways.
