This is easy to do yourself with lynx:

1) download the NO-CHUNKS version of the book from

2) run: lynx -dump file:/whatever > LFS-book.txt

Hey presto, a text version.  For BLFS you'll need to generate the 
NO-CHUNKS version yourself as the webiste doesn't carry one, get the XML 
and use xsltproc to create it (with help, in necessary from someone who 
can remember how to do that!)
