Why would someone want an eBook format converter? Well, for the simple reason that they would want to read all their eBooks in one device. Different eBook devices have different file formats. A specific format may not be compatible with a specific eBook reader. Since it is not possible for someone to switch from one device to another to read an eBook, converting the format remains the only viable solution.
Now, before we get into which product is the best eBook format converter, let us tell you that you may not want to use any software application at all. There are many online sites that allow you to convert eBooks from one format to another. However, there is one caveat that you always need to consider – not every website is a reliable website. There could be issues with malware, there could be issues with virus infections and there could be issues with your personal data being stolen. Hence, finding out about the best eBook format converters and using one of them makes more sense.
