Is it possible to integrate epub/pdf files into Obsidian?

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

Hi all,

I know that many people like to read on their Kindle and then export their highlights to Readwise and then transfer them their to their PKM system.

Personally, I prefer to read at my desk on my laptop. Prior to finding out about Obsidian, I used to have the book/epub file in one tab, and a Google Docs file open in the next. I would copy and paste different quotes of interest from the book into the docs, and then I would summarise/analyse the text further. Now that I have Obsidian, I would love it if I could have the epub file temporarily in one pane, so that I could paste over interesting ideas/quotes from the file into the notes I’m taking into the next pane.

In short, if we could integrate/embed epub files into a window in the same way that we can do with images it would be a game-changer!

Please let me know if this can be done!
