Question Simplest way to split omnibuses?



In layman's terms, what is the simplest way to split part of an omnibus into its own separate book? I've already googled and found different (and confusing) ways to do it, and I have no idea which is the best or the easiest to learn so I thought asking here may be the best way forward.

I hardly ever mess around with any book metadata unless I have to and usually just accept them as they are, but with omnibuses I've decided that I would really, really prefer to have the book I want to read separated into its own book but have no idea how to do it.

(I wasn't sure which would be the right forum for this discussion, so I went to the general forum)

If you use calibre, ePubSplit plugin is an easy way to split omnibus.

Thanks Terisa, I'll look into it. I have calibre and use it occasionally, though not very proficiently.

And thanks Harry. I thought that the thread might be moved; I just had no idea which forum to start it in after looking around.


ETA - Oh my, that was almost breathtakingly easy! I've already downloaded and installed and used epubsplit to break off a book from an omnibus and it was easier and faster than I would've ever expected. So simple, especially compared to some of the convoluted instructions I was finding through google. My problem is solved; thanks!
