Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. 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.

How do you Download Documents into your Nook

Hi - Does anyone know how you can download your documents to your Nook?  I have many papers I need to read and I'd rather read them on my nook.  It's in PDF and Doc format - can anyone advise?


Thanks - LRD_1968

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:


Nook can read PDFs, although it has trouble with poorly or rigidly formatted ones, particularly with things like charts and illustrations.  You can sideload these to your Nook by connecting your Nook to your computer and dragging and dropping them into the My Documents folder.


Nook does not support DOC files.  However, if you re-save them in RTF format, you can use Calibre, a free eBook management program, to convert the RTFs to EPUBs and sideload them directly to your Nook from Calibre.


Google "Calibre" to find it; it's pretty intuitive to use.
