Question

What file extensions are NOOK Books?

by sarah_jay / January 2, 2012 11:44 AM PST

I was given a gift card to Barnes and Noble, but I have the Kindle Fire. I was wondering if I could download the book on the computer and add it to the Kindle, but I need to know if it would have a supported file type or not. So my question is, what file extensions are NOOK Books?

And in an unrelated question, why doesn't Amazon have ALL the apps from the Android market? Isn't it supposed to, or does it not?

Correct, nook uses epub and pdf. However, it will use any type if you simply use the free conversion program called "calibre". It works GREAT and converts from all TO all formats. It's a very nice program to have handy! So I suggest researching it for any ebook ovner.
