You can access books using pretty much any browser,
including Firefox or Lynx, for that matter.

The downloaded books are simple zip files. Use the unzip command. You
might want to create a directory for them first, and copy the .zip into
that directory, then cd to it before running unzip.

Then, create a symlink to the .xml file along
the lines of:

ln -s [title].xml [title].html

Now use your favorite browser on the html target.
