Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

is there anyway i can get a study book or a texas state penal code/law book on my nook?

I am a police officer and I have several study books from various authors that we need to read for our promotional exan.  Since I am in a patrol car everyday it is a real pain to carry a backpack with the books everywhere.  Is there someway or somewhere I can send them to have them put in a form that will be readable on my new NOOK?????  Please help!

If you can give titles, that  might help. 

 

If you can get them in PDF format, you can drop them directly onto the Nook, or you can convert them using a program called Calibre from PDF to epub.  epub tends to work better than PDF for most books, I find. 

 

Also, Calibre has a search function that's very nice - access to lots of different vendors all in one place.

I tried converting a PDF file to epub format and the result was not very readable.  The converted file had the document name and page numbers throughout the document and it was not formatted very well.  Calibre is a great program but I wouldn't suggest converting a PDF with it.
