Using e-books on Lingq

Hi, I read somewhere (I think it was on the Lingq blog) that you can use e-books on Lingq to learn from. I tried to copy and paste from an e-book but can’t so how do you learn from an e-book? Is it a certain type of e-book? Thanks for any help.

Try using calibre to convert to .txt although some other formats work as well. I still have some pdfs in non-latin based languages that are encoded rather strangely and they come out unreadable no matter what I do. It’s possible that your ebook is drm protected, but I’ve had success with most ebooks.
