Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your FictionBook2 e-book files and convert them to Plain Text files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from FictionBook2 e-book
FictionBook is an open (nice!) XML-based e-book format, that’s pretty popular in Russia. The format doesn’t specify the appearance of the document, it describes it’s structure. There are special tags for epigraphs, verses, quotations and a few more. It also contains the ebook metadata (author name, title, publisher) and is great for automatic processing and indexing. And the best thing: It’s DRM-free. In contrast to ePub it’s a single XML file, even images are embedded (as Base64). That’s how e-books should work I guess. If you’re wondering how e-books should not work, read a little bit about how ePub works.
The files end with
.fb2 by default.
Converting to Plain Text
Oh, there is nothing better than a good old plain text file. A file that can be opened and read on every system. No rendering issues, no software to download, no parsers, no endianness, no padding bytes. Nothing that can go wrong. Just a .txt file and you. A place for ASCII Art, a whole book, some code snippets, a few notes, a journal or a protocol of strange things that happen in you neighbors garden. Hey, are you watching your neighbor? I thought it's strange to find fun in text formats of any kind, but you're the real stranger. Anyway, we've build this free text converter for you.The files end with
.txtby default. More about Plain Text files
