I've not tried it myself (I can put up with the one marketing panel of the
six on the Kobo home screen), but:

- koreader (https://github.com/koreader/koreader) looks open-source-ish (I
can't actually see a licence but the source is there!)  and cross-device.
- calibre  (https://calibre-ebook.com) is open source, allows conversion
between a wide variety of formats, and is a well respected cross-platform
ebook collection management tool, with a content server built in.
