how to convert LIT to EPUB free via Calibre

Lit is the file format developed by Microsoft in 2000. It's an ebook format used by the Microsoft e-Reader program to read eBooks. But it's not readable on iPad, iPhone, Adobe Digital Editions, Nook, Sony eReader, and so on. So if you want to read .lit file on various devices, you can solve this issue by converting LIT to the more common and popular ebook format like ePub.

This is just what I want to write in this article. Though there are many tools that you can use to convert lit files, online LIT to EPUB converter or the third-party program tool. But through my trial I finally get a conclusion that the Calibre is the best lit to ePub converter.

-Calibre is a free lit to epub converter.

-Calibre can convert lit to pdf, convert lit to kindle, too.

-Calibre is not only an ebook converter but also an ebook library manager.

-And more (full guide with calibre).

Here is the guide how to convert LIT to EPUB free via Calibre. It's my current preferred process.
