What is the .FB2 file type?

A file containing the FB2 file extension represents an eBook file suitable for reading on various e-readers and portable devices. The FB2 format is free, open-source and doesn't provide any digital rights management. It was initially created by Russian software developers and then became popular in other countries.

A digital book in the .fb2 format is a single XML file that describes all inner elements including title, name of the author, formatting scheme, and semantic markups and provides the possibility to keep the book structure unchanged. The "FB2" extension stands for "Fiction Book 2.0" - this file format suits best for storing fictional literature.
