text eBook extractor and reader

Gutenberg DVD Frontend


Write a front end pc only(mac would be good if doable) program that will allow the user to search for gutenberg ebooks on their DVD by title or author, then expand the zip file and display the content of the text file that was in the zip in a visually pleasing ebook reader.

This is a pretty simple project, convert html into a database, make a simple unzipper/searcher, make a simple text ebook reader that has a nice display.

I prefer realbasic but will take any good language. I would also prefer this be software that does not require installation(ie ie can be run from a DVD on a PC without having to install anything). Visual basic and .net require installation which is bad.

Final code must be complete and working.
