Shopping on Your Computer
Although B&N has made it easy to shop for content directly from the NOOK, sometimes it is easier and more convenient to shop for ebooks from your computer. Any books you purchase on your computer are added to the NOOK Library and are available for reading on your NOOK.
To shop for NOOK Books, magazines, and newspapers on your computer, browse to bn.com/ebooks. You can get samples of ebooks, subscribe to periodicals, and purchase books and apps from the NOOK Store.
When you purchase, subscribe to a periodical, or choose to sample a NOOK Book from the online NOOK Bookstore™, the content is automatically added to your My NOOK Library. You can read the item on your NOOK by connecting to Wi-Fi or Fast and Free Wireless. You can also tap the Sync button in the Library to force your NOOK to connect with B&N and download any new content.
One of the great features of using the B&N website for browsing NOOK Books is that you can see which other formats are available. For example, if an MP3 audiobook is available for a title you’re browsing, a link to the audiobook is there, so you can download it if you want.
When shopping for NOOK Books for Kids, look for the “NOOK Kids Read to Me” statement in Format section. These NOOK Books have the Read to Me feature enabled. If the format for a NOOK Book for Kids is simply NOOK Book, you will not have the Read to Me option for that NOOK Book for Kids. You can learn more about this feature in Chapter 5, “Reading and Using NOOK Books for Kids Features.”
Whether you choose to shop from your NOOK or your computer, B&N provides plenty of great content for your NOOK at the NOOK Bookstore. However, there are also many other sources for great ebooks for your NOOK. Some of those sources you can find in Appendix B, “Sources for ebooks Other than B&N,” which you can then sideload to your NOOK.
