Calibre is included in Debian Squid. It is scheduled for install as soon
as I get my act together and upgrade from the currently-installed Debian
Lenny to Debian Squid.
There is no lack of high quality open source eBook readers. My failures
all relate to my inability to locate a suitable "mobile internet device"
- which is content to be just an eBook reader, but will communicate
readily with my Debian computer.
I considered the quoted Amazon advice (that non-Amazon eBooks need to be
converted to PDF files before they can be loaded into Kindle) to be both
unintelligible and unsatisfactory.
