I get a gray background with black stripes in the download box. Never showing the progress of the download.At this point I go to BN.com to download to my computer, …
Hi, Ron L, here’s the step by step – skip what you already completed.Ffirst of all, you cannot do anything untill you register your Nook to your B&N account and you can only register it through Wi-Fi (if you got Wi-Fi-only Nook), cannot do it through your PC.The easiest to start with any free Wi-Fi spots that do not need password or any other manual intervention. You should be able to register from any Barnes & Noble store that provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s or any Starbucks or any McDonalds or airport or any other place that provides free Wi-Fi service. If you have an existing BN.com account, be sure you have a default credit card and billing information saved in your account. Sign-in to your account to manage your Credit Card.NOOK Set-Up Steps1. Charge your new NOOK 3G or NOOK Wi-Fi for 3-hours from a wall outlet using the Power Adapter and USB Cable packed at the bottom of your NOOK box.2. Turn on your NOOK by pressing the power button at the top.3. Connect to Wi-Fi. Connect automatically and for free at any Barnes & Noble bookstore, all AT&T hotspots or use your home Wi-Fi.4. NOOK 3G owners may also check for 3G wireless connectivity.5. Register your device by entering your BN.com account email.6. Tap the down arrow button in the lower right corner of your color touchscreen.7. Enter your BN.com password.8. Tap Submit9. Read the Tour offered on your NOOK to learn moreeBooks that you previously purchased from BN.com are automatically delivered to your online digital library a short time after you register your NOOK. The 5 most recently purchased eBooks that were purchased within the last 30 days prior to registering your NOOK are also delivered to your NOOK. You can download the others to your NOOK or just leave them in your online digital library. Other eBooks purchased from BN.com are not automatically downloaded to your NOOK. You can download them manually from My B&N Library, or just leave them in the online digital library. They will be there to download in the future.After you’re done with that, then you can move on to transferring ebooks to Nook through your PC.After you downloaded book to your PC do this:1. plug the Nook to your pc with the usb cable.2. add the books to the “my documents” folder in your Nook.3. unplug your Nook from pc.4. go to “my library” in your Nook -> “view my documents”, check for new content.5. the ebooks you’ve added should pop up.
Looking for a good book to read. Help.
I’m looking for a new book to read can anyone suggest any good ones to me? I want some fiction/romance but I’m open to hearing any suggestions 🙂 list as many as you like thanks! 🙂
There is a new book series out on Amazon called Treasures of Darkness Treasures of Light. It has a protagonist (male) named Zam. It was so good I couldn’t stop reading it… I was awake much of the night 😉 … The first book is out – called Through the Dark Wood by Geno Allen. There is a short story too which is how I found out about it. The short story is How to be a Hero. It had a 2 chapter preview and was on a free promo through Amazon which is how I got it. Short story good – preview AMAZING and SO INTRIGUING. The novel is EPIC! Check it out on Amazon. I use my PC to read e-books by downloading Kindle and Nook apps … =) Hope that helps.

how can you download text books on your nook color.
i am about to start college and i just what to use my nook color to download text books i dont care if i have to pay
Hi, Shanyell, neither Nook nor Kindle handles eTextbooks well however Barnes and Noble has something for a regular PC or MAC including a laptop or a desktop. An eTextbook is a digital, downloadable, version of a physical textbook. It can be read on your PC and Mac with B&N’s free NOOKstudy application. An eTextbook will look exactly like the physical version so you will see the same graphs, charts, drawings etc. The best part is that you can read your eTextbook anywhere that you bring your computer without needing the internet! And, you have the option to purchase or rent it depending on your needs.
reading ebooks on the B&N NOOK.
i’m interested in buying the NOOK ebook reader, but i have some questions i haven’t been able to find answers to. i understand that the nook 3G+WiFi connects to any 3G or WiFi hotspot or AT&T hot spot, but can i download some ebooks and read them at home? basically do i have to be at a wifi hotspot to be…
You do not have to be connected to either the wifi or the 3g to read your nook. I own a nook-which I love, love, love, love, did I say how much I love it? Once the books are on your nook as long as you have power you can read. The 3g and wifi are for ease of purchase and loading to the nook so you won’t have to be connected to pc to purchase and download your book to your nook. I basically keep my nook in airplane mode all the time. The small color touch screen and the wifi both have an affect on your battery. You can sideload your books(plug your nook to your computer via the usb and drag and drop books to your nook). And you don’t necessarily have to read your nook only at home. I take mine EVERYWHERE!!!! You may not know but there are 2 versions of the nook. There is almost no difference between the to except that Nook wifi-$149 has wifi only. You must be connected to a wifi hotspot to download wirelessly. If you have wifi at home that’s great. You can just connect there without having to plug in to download from the nook store. The original Nook $199 has both wifi and 3g. So if you can’t connect to a wifi hotspot you can still connect to the 3g networks. Just say the wifi network is down at your house, but you have just got to have that new best seller. You can connect your nook wirelessly via the 3g and Bob’s your uncle. Currently you can only utilize the web browsing feature via wifi, however I believe that in the future a firmware upgrade will be made available to allow you to connect via the 3g as well.Hope that answers your question and doesn’t create more. Enjoy your nook you will wonder how you got along without it.
Nook Color book help.
Whenever I connect my Nook Color to a computer I am unable to pull up any of the books that I own. The only things that pull up are all of the folders from “my stuff” then “my files”. Under “my files” there are tons of folders, one of which is titled books, but there isn’t any…
yes, this is the normal situation.you know the reason? nook books you bought form barneandnoble book stores are protected by digital rights management so we can not open them on other places let alone read them.what you need to do is remove their drm and then transfer it into your computer will be capable.http://www.epubsoft.org/how-to-remove-nook-ebook-drm.htmlhope you can get help.or the second you may choose a free app called nook for pc to have a try, if it works, it will give you the same effect to your requirement.
how do I read epub files on nook color.
I have purchased non-B&N ebooks and want to borrow from the library but can’t figure out how to transfer the files from my pc to the nook
Hi, peachytashebay, if non-B&N book is in ePub format, connect your NOOKcolor to a computer (using the NOOKcolor microUSB cable) to transfer personal files. Your NOOKcolor will appear on your computer as a removable drive. Just click on the file on your computer and copy it (drag-and-drop) to the appropriate NOOKcolor folder.All of your personal photos, images and videos can be found in “my files” located in your NOOKcolor library. 1) Tap on “library”; 2) Tap on “my files”. There are many folders within “my files” to store multimedia content: Pictures, Videos, etc. These files may also be accessed through the Gallery found in under Extras from the Home Screen.Personal files saved on a microSD card installed in your NOOKcolor can be found in your Library.1. Press the Home Button2. Tap on the Quick Nav Arrow3. Tap on “library”4. Tap on “my files”5. Tap on “Memory Card”, found at the top of the screen, just below the row of icons.If book are not in ePub format, download a copy of Calibre (Google it), it’s a free software. Then it will convert the PDF or txt files to the ePub format that the Nook accepts.To get library ebooks, first you need to get Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) software (free from Adobe site). Once you have checked out a title from your local library, download it to your computer. Once you hit the download button, the file that you will be prompted to download is a “.acsm” file.2. Click open and the file will open up in ADE and refresh your library with new content. The title will display the amount of days you have left in the loan period. You can also save the .acsm file to your PC and open the file in ADE.3. Go to the library view. Drag the title to the “NOOK” icon.4. Undock the NOOK from your computer.5. In the Library, open My Documents.6. The title should be available to be read for the period of time specified by the library.
How can I get textbooks on my NOOK.
There is one textbook that I cannot get onto my NOOK via Barnes and Noble and I was hoping that there was another way. The book is the 19th edition of Macroeconomics by McConnell. Does anyone know how I can get this book?
Hi, Fred, neither Nook nor Kindle handles eTextbooks well however Barnes and Noble has something for a regular PC or MAC including a laptop or a desktop. An eTextbook is a digital, downloadable, version of a physical textbook. It can be read on your PC and Mac with B&N’s free NOOKstudy application. An eTextbook will look exactly like the physical version so you will see the same graphs, charts, drawings etc. The best part is that you can read your eTextbook anywhere that you bring your computer without needing the internet! And, you have the option to purchase or rent it depending on your needs.In terms of Nook vs. Kindle for everything else, current e-Ink Nook is much better than current e-ink Kindle as Nook has the latest generation touch screen display, no page turn lag, it weights less, and its battery lasts twice as long, and it doesn’t blink on each page turn. Having that out of the way, you should then decide which screen you want: e-Ink or LCD. It depends on what you’re reading. If just black & white novels then the better one would be e-Ink Nook from Barnes & Noble. If you read electronic magazines or college text books with a lot of color graphs and charts or children’s’ books with a lot of pictures then the better would be Nook Color LCD from Barnes & Noble. Whichever device you choose, here’s the advantages of the Nook’s (both e-Ink black & white and Nook Color) over Kindle:- Any Barnes & Noble store provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s and when you walk in with the Nook to B&N store, you’re allowed to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. With Nook, while in BN store you get exclusive articles from top authors, and great offers including cafe treats and unique deals.- Nook allows to lend Nook books for two weeks to friends and family or share with your other devices that run B&N app (PC, MAC, Android phones, Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad, etc.)- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for library ebooks.Kindle only supports eBooks in its proprietary AZW format. Nook, on the other hand, supports both DRM-protected and DRM-free ebooks in ePub format thus it supports ebooks from B&N store, from any other DRM-free source on the web, and from public libraries. You can buy Nook’s at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Millon, Walmart, BestBuy, Staples, OfficeMax, Fred Mayer, P.C. Richard etc. stores and web sites.
Is there a way to rent Nook books.
I don’t want to waste my money on a book I’m only going to read once, so is there any way I can rent a book on Nook instead of completely buying it?
Hi, Whit, Nook Simpletouch and Nook Color support checking out public library ebooks. here’s what you need to make it work after you find a library and sign up:First you need to get Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) software (free from Adobe site).1.Once you have checked out a title from your local library, download it to your computer.
