I got an N2A card for my nook :P. It basically changes the nook to an android tablet, but it can still be used as a nook as well. With the android side, I downloaded the kindle app free, and then can buy whatever books I want off amazon. The n2a card cost $30..it's well worth it! Otherwise, Idk that app sorry :( lol.

You got calibre on your computer or nook? If it's on the computer you need to hook your nook up into the computer and check which books you like and press move to extrenal hard drive

I got that too. I love all my apps and when I take it out I read. I also have the Samsung tablet and downloaded the nook app, but it doesn't bring up the books I downloaded from calibre

you basically, can't

Nook and Kindles do not play nice. You will either have to root your nook and void the warranty (if it is a table one) or illegally strip the DRM. And it is illegal and you could possibly (though highly unlikely) face ramifications. My suggestionis, if you really want to read certain books which you can only find on amazon is to buy a cheap refurbished eink kindle. They run about 43 dollars on amazon. Amazon does tend to have a wider book selection and more books from small publishers then barnes and nobles

That's where I got the cards. I think for my version of the nook (Nook Tablet, 8gb) it was $30. It was well worth the money because google play (part of android) has tons of free apps that usually cost money with Barnes and Noble :). It's AWESOME! Plus, it's on a card, so it won't mess up the nook, you can hit a button to switch back to nook side or just take out the card.
