How to completely reset a Nook for resale

So, I rather like the looks of the new nook coming out :smileyhappy:

 

I'm going to sell my current nook, but I want to make certain it's properly reset. I don't want whoever I sell it to to be buying books with my CC, etc.

 

Should I just run /Settings/Device/Unregister Your NOOK & /Settings/Device/Reset to Factory Settings?

 

Is that it, or is there more I need to do?

 

Thanks,

That's it. You've got it. Unregister and Reset to Factory.

 

Note: if you've added a micro-SD card, be sure to remove that. If you're selling it with an added card, you'll need to erase that card yourself.

Will this process leave the books that I currently have loaded for the new owner?  I think this would be an added bonus when trying to sell or when giving away to someone.

No, it won't.  The books are tied to your B&N account and once you set it back to factory, they are no longer on the nook.

Is there a way to leave the books but remove the ability to use my account to buy more books?  I would want the new owner to be able to register the nook for their use.

E-books are licensed to you personally, and the license is not transferable.

 

You could do what Kobo does, and load it with a ton of public-domain titles.
