On The MIME Type of ePUBs

The MIME type of an ePUB file should be application/epub+zip.

You can find non-conforming ePUBs within your library with:
Code:
file --mime-type **/*.epub | grep -v 'application/epub+zip'
This can happen if the mimetype file:
  • Is missing.
  • Isn't the first entry.
  • Is compressed instead of stored.
  • Has extra fields.
  • Contains the wrong MIME type (seems unlikely).

You can solve the problem by unpacking the ePUB and repacking it with:
Code:
[ -e mimetype ] || printf '%s' 'application/epub+zip' > mimetype
zip -X -Z store abc.epub mimetype
zip -r abc.epub . -x mimetype
