Hi...
I've been building some epubs of my own, but they are sometimes buggy. Since I can't edit on the iPad or iPhone, I just mark the pages.

It'd be super helpful if I could dump these markings and notes in a shell window, right where I edit the epub files, but I haven't found out how.

Is there a way to extract those notes?

No. They are backed up when you sync, but someone would have to reverse-engineer the backups and create a tool to extract those notes. This is completely possible, but no one seems to have done it yet.

(If you extract the backup using iPhone Backup Extractor (available from http://supercrazyawesome.com ) the backups are readable and the notes are in there, but finding them and working out the database schema would take some reverse-engineering. On the assumption that Apple will at some point create an iBooks client for the Mac, this probably isn't worth working on unless you're really curious and have the spare time.)
