I downloaded NOOK for PC per the instructions I was given and everything worked perfectly until I got to "each book and select download". I don't see "download" to copy each book to my PC anywhere! (Is this an icon? If so, I what kind of icon am I looking for?) I see where there are Options, but even under that there is nothing like download. I don't really want to be a bother, but I've looked at this and looked at it, and although I may be looking right at it, I don't see it! 'Can someone enlighten me please?

It sounds like you are almost there---I think if you will click on options, it will give you other choices, including "read now," "download," "archive" etc. There should be a "+" beside of options.
P.S. Only the one that IS downloaded says "Remove Local Copy". The rest do not have that option.
It sounds like only one book has been downloaded. I would think that if the ones that are not downloaded do not give you the option to "remove local copy" then it should give you the option to "Download." What options do those books give you? Possibly go down the page and pick another book, click on its options, and just see if "download" is listed. Maybe it will be since you did the sync. If not, hopefully someone here will have some suggestions, as I know this is frustrating for you.
For each book, you'll see the title with the name of the author below it. The next line says Last Read. Below that it says Date Added.
Below those lines you will see + Options.Click on the plus sign to see the options. The first option is Read Now. The second option is either Download or Remove Local Copy.
Here is another hint to make your life easier. Keep the order of your books on Most Recent once you have gotten them downloaded. Then any new purchases will be on the top. Easier to find.
(Caps are used only to distinguish between the two
When I click on Options ON THE ONLY BOOK THAT IS LISTED IN MY FOLDER UNDER DOCUMENTS these are the Options I get: Read Now, Remove Local Copy, Move to Archive or Details. When I click ON ANY OF THE OTHER BOOKS I get: Read Now, Move to Archive, Details. Under Options this is no mention of the word Download.
My sincere thanks to both of you for telling my what the icons mean and your personal thoughts. All of that will certainly come in handy very soon.
This just occurred to me. These books you dont have the ability to download, are any of them PagePerfect or Enhanced Books? Dont think you can download/backup any of the Enhanced books. PagePerfect seems to be no hard and fast rules (some PP books you can backup, some you cant.) EnhancedBooks will say so in the title. In the Options line, see if the last box says info or something like that.
What computer system are you running?
What version of Nook for PC are you running?
Can you give us a couple of examples of the books you have that don't show 'download' in the 'options' setting.
Re: In Nook for PC, google books for free. Not seeing what you are looking at in Nook for PC. And even if I did, would discourage you from getting them for google because last time I did it, it was a pdf file rather than an epub, and they generally don't "read" as well on the NT (lots of pinching and zooming.) For free epub books, try these two sources:
This is Project Gutenberg. They have free, out of copyright books available for download. When you find your book and go to download a copy, you want to be sure to get the one with that says "epub." They generally don't have covers etc, but you can find some good classics in there if you want. You will also have to rename the file to the book title (they download with a numeric number, rather than the title.)
The other place is the Nook Book Discussion Board here, http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/NOOK-Book-D
There are a couple of thread in there with free nook books. This one is just what it sounds like:
Here's the thing: Don't ask ANY questions in that thread. Its literally a list of free books that people have come across and put together. Think it is spec that does a weekly list of all the free books available (and he/she does a really great job.)
There are a few other lists in there (Smashwords books worth considering, and a current bargain list.)
Have a good holiday!
