ebooks what format? epub? pdf?

then find the corresponding app that does that. on pc i use sumatra pdf.


hm i found this.

a docker app you can use via container station
Calibre-web is a web app providing a clean interface for browsing, reading and downloading eBooks using an existing Calibre database. It is also possible to integrate google drive and edit metadata and your calibre library through the app itself.
https://docs.linuxserver.io/images/docker-calibre-web


you would need to install it via container station, then access it via the app URL. in HDstation you can access browser, so i'm guessing you input the app url there and you should be able to view ebooks with it :'

calibre-web looks like this. the interface is pretty good

alternatively there may be a calibre qpkg either in appcenter or on qnapclub.eu

i'm not sure, but you can check.

Calibre OPDS (and HTML) PHP Server : web-based light alternative to Calibre content server / Calibre2OPDS to serve ebooks (epub, mobi, pdf, ...)

the qpkg which is a dependency of hd station means, you connect the QNAP to your monitor via HDMI to then access hdstation, then browse to the qpkg app, and then you can browse your ebooks.
