You can extract the annotations from the sqlite database of the Kobo.
This shell script works for the Kobo Touch, I think it will also work
for the Glo. You should adapt the kobodir definition to the mount point
of the device (or directory containing a copy of the device contents).
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Extract the bookmark annotations from the Kobo database.
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------

kobodir=/media/KOBOeReader
db="$kobodir/.kobo/KoboReader.sqlite"

sqlite3 "$db" 'select VolumeID,StartContainerPath,Text,Annotation from Bookmark;' |
awk -F'|' 'BEGIN{OFS="|"}{gsub("/", "_", $1); print}' |
sort -t/ -k1 -k2 -n -k4 -k5 -k6 -k7 -k8 |
sed	'
	s/[^|]*|//
	s/[^|]*|//
	s/|/\n\n/
	s/$/\n\n/
	'
