Catch of The Day - dotEPUB - 11/14/2011

dotEPUB is web-based software that allows you to convert any webpage into an e-book.


dotEPUB downloads web pages in ePub format using a bookmarklet in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera (not IE). Google Chrome for Windows users also have the option to install the dotEPUB browser extension. These web pages can then be read on any device that supports the ePub format. This includes iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and many more (unfortunately, not Kindle*). They can also be read on any computer with an e-reader application that is ePub-compatible.


You must uncheck the Immersive mode setting to retrieve images. dotEPUB supports images in JPEG, PNG, and GIF formats. Images will not be retrieved if more than ten are found in the main content.

dotEPUB can also make e-books from documents that have been uploaded to your Google Docs account. The supported formats are Microsoft Word, OpenDocument, StarOffice, rich text, plain text, or PDF.

*Note: If you are a Kindle user, the free Calibre software will allow you to convert your e-books from the ePub format into the MOBI format supported by Kindle.
