I have not found anyway to convert .pub to something else. I sometimes open 
them with pub, copy what I can to a word doc them save. You can also save 
the .pub as rtf I think. Then you'd have the text.  Also I heard a long time 
ago the MS has a reader (works like adobe reader) for read only of .pub. I 
have not seen it. 

Since I gave up with MS I have just redone everything in Scribus on Linux.
