Support epub format ebooks

It’s very nice if logseq can support epub ebooks like PDF.

I would love this too. Great suggestion

Koodo Reader (JS based) Integration would be interesting.
EPUB, MOBI, DJVU and CBZ are included.

Obsidian now have a plugin that can annotate both PDF and epub files, https://github.com/elias-sundqvist/obsidian-annotator maybe logseq can do the similar.

Recognizable PDF books are too hard to find, please update to support mobi, equb format, so logseq can be a better note taking software

My current workaround (even if I have the epub or mobi file) is to convert them all into pdf files using Calibre. I find it a lot easier to work with this way. I think epub and mobi file has too many moving parts and inconsistencies. Finding a good epub reader for my Android tablet took me months and multiple tries with many apps before I settle with Lithium. If the epub only have text then it’s easy, but if it has complicated element such as diagrams, tables, etc. I find the performance is every inconsistency.

Let’s say with area highlight, since pdf view everything is “fixed” on the page, Logseq can just remember the highlighted area, but epub allows you to change font size, etc, which I believe makes it very hard to use the same highlight mechanism.

So we’ve got the elements of something amazing. Between Readwise + Kindle, you can pull Kindle highlights from Logseq. The only thing remaining is to be able to easily pull up the location if you have the book in Calibre, or to invoke a search for a word in Calibre. At that point everything you’ve read will be accessible via Logseq for note taking and making connections.

Could we invest in a Calbire integration that is this seamless? I’d be happy to put $100 or $200 behind this feature request.
