Convert CBR to EPUB for Free

Posted by on .

Why I write this article about converting cbr to epub? Let me explain the reason for you. CBR is actually just a compressed file with an amended file extension. It allows to store a set of comic book images. Each image represents a page or panel of a comic book. CBR files can be opened by CBR Reader. But it's far from being enough, right? You cannot read the cbr comic files on portable devices like iPad, iPhone, Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader and more. It's so inconvenient! What to do? Convert the cbr comic files to other widely used formats like epub. Next I will introduce some ways to convert cbr to epub for free. And the methods are really simple.
