I have to read many .epub classical books (almost all public domain) on iBook. Those books are not necessarily from iBookStore. I make highlights, notes, etc.


My situation is that the formats/styles and typos of those classical .epub make me extremely uncomfortable.


So I am planning to edit those errors whenever I find them on my Mac.


Here is the workflow:


Read on iBook ——> highlights ——> see errors ——> export .epub to editing tools on Mac ——> edit ——> export to iBook ——> read



My only question is will all my bookmarks, highlights and notes disappear when I edit the epub?


Does anyone know where/how iBook records/store the highlights and bookmarks? In .plist or something else? Since If I know where all my annotations are, I couse easily preserve them when I am editing the epub.



This is a very very big problem of mine. Please help me.
