any software for annotating Project Gutenberg books?


What software can you recommend for annotating downloaded copies of e-books? Probably not to print. But I have one printed copy of an e-book from Gutenberg that I annotated very heavily because it was such a fascinating book. I wanted to throw away the printed copy and buy a nice printed copy, because a manila folder of 150 pages or so looked ugly with my other books. Then I realized I would struggle to fit all my annotations into a paperback unless I see a trade edition for sale. I suppose it might be simpler to annotate the file on the computer, if I can (undoubtedly). I write freely in all my books, but rarely this much.

from my last vocational training i know that MS Word is better at this (annotating documents) than e.g. LibreOffice.
Because some teachers would do it, and i couldn't see it with LO.

Sigil looks pretty impressive if you only have epub. http://www.noobslab.com/2014/12/are-...editor-to.html
