I have a somewhat big collection of .lit ebooks, and I'd like to be able to read them from Fedora. So far I am using Wine to execute microsoft's reader, but I was wondering if there is any native linux software to use?

Thanks in advance

Looks like the only other route is to convert the .lit to other formats (see ****).

As web search shows, it seems that there isn't any known programs for Linux that open it. There is a Firefox extension OpenBerg (http://openberg.sourceforge.net/) (download link (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5275)) that can open .lit e-books if you first install convertlit (http://www.convertlit.com/). Convertlit is a tool to convert .lit files to open e-book format. It is command line tool, but it has some GUI's like ConvertLIT GUI (http://dukelupus.pri.ee/convertlit.php), calibre (http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/), ConvertLit (http://sourceforge.net/projects/litconverter).
