I know this is a bit tangential to the topic of this forum, but I do read a lot of articles and books and I often have to do that in a “virtual” way, since I don’t want to print out hundreds of pages.
Right now I’m using a tablet to read these, but I have them all stored on my computer, neatly organized in folders according to my own system. And that works great for me and makes it also very future proof, since it does not depend on any proprietary database structure, and can be copied from one place to the other with the basic tools the OS has.
But, I’m rambling a bit, here’s my problem:
Sometimes I just want to take a quick peek at an ebook to see if I want to read it or not, or just to choose what to copy to the tablet. Unfortunately neither Mac’s Quick Look, nor Preview do support displaying epub files and I don’t want to be forced to open each one in iBook and then delete them again. right now I’m stuck with using EPUBreader, which is an addon for Firefox, but it’s really not ideal.
All I need is a simple MacOS application which will open an epub file when I double click it! Nothing more! I don’t want any library management built-in. The program should not try to interfere with my file management in any way.
But after countless hours of searching, I couldn’t fine one.
Anybody knows one?
