There are (at least) four ways to handle spaces in paths and file names.

Use qoutes:

"~/my path/my file.epub"

Escape the spaces:

~/my\ path/my\ file.epub

Encode the spaces:

~/my\040path/my\x20file.epub

Quote the spaces:

~/my" "path/my" "file.epub

Sometimes, when connecting over ssh for instance, you may have to combine these methods. For instance double-escape the spaces.

Edit: Rereading your question I realise that I don't actually answer your question. Sorry about that.
