Making epub files for ebooks

I did some research into how to make ebooks today.  I ran across this article called 4 Ways to Create an ePub eBook which was extremely helpful.

A Web Developers Tools for Making eBooks

There is a free software tool called Calibre that can be used to edit ebooks.  I downloaded it and tried it.  It let’s you directly edit the html and css of a epub file (which is pretty neat!).

There’s another tool (which I haven’t tried yet) called Sigil Ebook.
