Files that contain the .lit file extension store electronic books that have been saved in the Microsoft LIT file format. The LIT file format is used by the Microsoft Reader software application and was originally released by Microsoft in August of 2000.
Microsoft Reader is a free application that users can run to read eBooks on devices that run on the Windows operating system. LIT files contain the actual contents of the digital book as well as book's digital rights information. This information limits the number of systems that each digital book can be read on, protecting the eBooks copyright rights.

File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about the LIT file format or software that uses files with the LIT suffix, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
