Converting azw3 to epub: character encoding issue.
I purchased and successfully removed the DRM from the following title: http://www.amazon.com/Democracy-Self...7763696&sr=1-2
Now when attempting to convert it to epub, I receive the following traceback:
I tried changing the input encoding under look and feel and receive the exact same error, likewise from the cli with ebook-convert. If I go into the module and force the encoding to latin-1 I get the following ouput:
...which produces an epub, albeit with artefacts.
If I can get in contact with a developer, I'd gladly send input/output files.

Uninstall your distro provided calibre and install the latest version from the official calibre website.

I have a better solution that will work much much much better.
Use the Mobi_Unpack plugin to move the files int he AZW3 to ePub. Then run the ePub through Sigil to find any errors that need fixing, fix them and you have an ePub that's almost the same as the AZW3.
