I installed the reader just fine on my BB Bold 9000. I have no trouble downloading and reading some samples from B&N.
I have a Epub book that I bought from another source and would like to read it on my BB. I tried putting it in the BN folder with the other samples, but then I get an 'Unable to Sync' error, so I deleted it.
I installed Calibre and converted it to .pdb and put it in the same folder, and got the same error.
Is there something special I have to do to side load a book to read in the BN ereader on the blackberry?

The current version (1.0.7) of B&N's ereader for BB cannot read epub format books. There is also the problem of DRM, converting a book with no drm from epub to pdb will not stop the ereader from trying to use the B&N DRM scheme. Which of course results in the book not opening.
As to the "unable to sync" error, have you tried rebooting the BB after loading the book? I occasionally get a "media card removed, unable to sync" message after directly adding media to the sd card but rebooting takes care of it.
