In this day and age of eBooks, there are several different formats which allow publishers to publish their books. Some of the most famous one’s are ePub format, .mobi format, PDF format and so on.
However, these formats do not have a wide known reader for Windows based PCs. If you have downloaded a file with .lit extension, you might not be able to open and read the book on your PC. .lit files were common on devices which ran Windows Mobile.
If you want to open .lit files we will offer you some ways to either open .lit eBooks and also a guide to convert the .lit books to several popular formats like ePub, PDF, .mobi and more.
First off, if you want to open a .lit book, you can download a free reader called Microsoft Reader (which will be discontinued in August 2012) by visiting http://www.microsoft.com/reader. The Microsoft Reader will allow you to open .lit files and read them. However, if you want to read the books with .lit extension you will have to convert them to another popular format like ePub, .mobi or PDF.
On the other hand you can also convert .lit books to other formats like ePub, PDF or MOBI. In order to convert .lit books to other formats you will need a software called Calibre. You can read our instructions on how to convert .lit books and ePub books.
