Bug Description

When opening the E-book viewer with no book selected, I get the Open a new book screen in full screen which don't have a way to turn off full screen mode and no way to quit. Please add a way to quit in that screen.

Open a book and then exit. Or use whatever the standard window close key
combination is for your desktop environment.

Could you just make so that full screen mode closes when clicking the ESC key?

The Esc key is used to display controls, remember.

If the viewer is not opened in fullscreen mode, it would fix the problem.

The viewer is not opened in full screen mode unless you either set it to
remember window size or pass the --fullscreen command line argument.
