select all the text displayed, copy and paste it to a word document, repeat for each file in order that is in the directory, save the file under the name you want.
Wahla ... epub to doc =)
Be careful with this method. Copy paste does not always play nice, especially with somewhat more 'exotic' code. I have seen issues with usage of <dt> and <dd>.
