What is an EPUB File and How to open it?


I asked my Friend to send an eBook to me. Last night he sent to me and I received the file in my Email and it was a ZIP file.

After I download it and unzipped I was little confused because the file I saw was with an Extension called ‘epub‘. I could able to recognize the extension E-PUB should be Electronic – Publication. But the actual is Open Publication eBook file.

Then, I tried to open that file in Windows 8 and it failed because It needed a software to open.

How to open the file:
