There's a script to do that en masse yes, I don't have the askubuntu
link yet but I've converted epubs to txt files no problem, though
stripping the DRM from books I own is something I've had to do to
convert some of them however, others converted without issue.
So yes. It's doable, it's ebook-convert and a shell script is how I do
it. I'd put them all in one folder, then make a shell scrip tthat takes
the *.epub and converts it to *.txt, where * is the input and output names.
Such as book1.epub would be converted to book1.txt
