How to Convert LIT to EPUB Free
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.
Step1: Install and Launch Calibre
Firstly download Calibre and select a proper version for your PC. Here we select “Windows”. Download or copy your LIT eBooks on your computer please.
Step2: Add Microsoft LIT Files to Calibre
Drag and drop a few LIT e-book files into calibre, or click on the “Add Books” button at the upper left of the toolbar and browse for the LIT ebooks you want to work with. When you succeed in adding, the title of the ebook will show in the middle list.
Double click the file you want to select for a review before the ebook conversion.
For DRM-free LIT files, you can open directly, then convert to ePub.
But for DRM protected LIT files, it will pop up a window as the image shows below. This book is DRMed.
So if also receive this dialog when converting lit to epub, maybe you should remove drm from lit files.
Step 3: Convert LIT to EPUB: Calibre
Select the lit files, then touch the “Convert books” button.
Set “ePub” as output format at the new pop-up window. Then click “OK”.
As the image shows, we can also set pdf as output format if we want to convert lit to pdf. Of course we can also convert lit to mobi and convert lit to azw. The formats calibre support are as below.

Look to the bottom of the right corner. As soon as you see the message “Jobs: 0”, it shows the conversion has completed.
After the conversion is completed, you can see the ebook cover, including the output format (ePub) and original format (LIT), then click “Click it to open” to get your books.
