Recovery from Library

About eighteen months ago, I put an rtf document on to my reader via the library, read it and forgot about it. Now I suddenly need to edit & reprint it.
The original is gone, the backups are gone and I deleted it from the reader long ago. The only copy I can find it is the copy in the Reader library. Is it possible to extract it from there? I've never needed to to this before and have only just noticed that there doesn't seem to be that facility. Have I missed it or am I condemned to re-write from scratch?
Obviously in this case there is no DRM involved.

Just drag and drop from the Library folder. Mine is under Documents/My Books/Reader Library.

I found the directory as you said but it is empty. (Actually there are about 200 books in the library)
Searching for 'Reader Library' finds only the one in 'my books'
Searching for the title of one of the books that are really there yields no finds.
Thanks anyway. but any further ideas would be gratefully received.

Are you sure you have activated "all formats" in the explorer window where the directories show up?

The copy is still visible in the Reader Library? If so, can you open/view it in the Sony software and hit the "i" button in the upper left corner? It should show you the file path. Sometimes the software stores books in a folder called something like "kdatabase" buried on your computer in the Program Files folders. When it does that sometimes the files are renamed too.

Thank you both. Problem solved! (I had never noticed that 'i' button)
I was under the impression that the library made its own copy of the file but I see that it just holds (somewhere) a pointer. I'd also forgotten that the title shown on the library list is not the name of the file and so I did have the file all the time - but under its original name.
V. grateful.
