Hi mmjsmith, NOOK Books purchased from BN.com that are not
automatically downloaded to your NOOK may be downloaded manually from My
B&N Library. EBooks not purchased at B&N can be side-loaded as long as
the file format is supported by the NOOK. Check this link out for help in side-loading
to your NOOK:
Go to Library --> Tap View My B&N Library or View My Documents to toggle between the two areas. Once you have manually loaded your personal documents, be sure to tap Check for New Content to display them in My Documents area.

Can I/how do I move a book from my PC to my Nook? Thanks.
Use your USB cable (your charger cable minus the AC adaptor) to connect your Nook to your computer. There are a couple ways to transfer. You can have ADE open when you plug in the Nook -- if you are looking at your library (not in a book) in ADE, it'll come up with "Nook" in the list of shelves, and you can just drag and drop books onto that "shelf." I haven't found library books to work unless they are transferred that way, but with all other books (and with music and pictures too), you can just use regular directory windows drag and drop the file icons into the appropriate folder in your Nook directory.
Make sure, when you are done sideloading books, that you click the button to go up a level (so that you see the root directory -- C drive, Nook, etc.), right-click on the Nook, and choose "Eject" from the drop-down menu.
