Software‎ > ‎

What is it? is a Bash port of BookListGen - a booklist/index file generator for the Sony LIBRIe ebook reader. It runs on Linux and OS X, and is released under the GPL license.

What can it do?

Basically, it allows you to get books onto your LIBRIe without using Windows. can create the LIBRIe's required directory structure on a mounted memory stick. It can also scan for LRF (BBeB ebook) files and add these files to the index. This allows the LRF files to be read from this memory stick when it is inserted into the LIBRIe. Full instructions are included in the README file inside the package. More information can also be found on the LIBRIe Wiki, and the Yahoo LIBRIe Group.

What do I need?

  • makes use of common tools which should already be available on any recent Linux/OS X system:
  od, awk, sed, dd, gunzip, cut, iconv, tr, grep, file
  • A locale which supports UTF-8 (e.g. en_GB.UTF-8).
  • A memory stick and memory stick reader which is supported under your OS. (I recommend the Belkin USB 2.0 15-in-1 reader for Linux).
  • A LIBRIe (Duh)

Where can I get it?

Version 0.31 fixes a small error in the regex to remove trailing spaces from the LRFDATE tag.
