Text Books on NOOK

I am a student and was wondering whether or not Nook is capable of downloading text books?

Penny,

 

To answer your question (without being snarky), yes, your nook is compatible with textbooks providing the format is one of the ones Nook runs....

Re: Text Books on NOOK

It depends very much on the book.   It's outstanding for books that are predominantly text.

 

If there are  a lot of diagrams and pictures that are important to understanding the book, this may not work well.

 

If the text book is not sold as an eBook then you will just have to see.  Not all codings of these books are equal.

 

In conclusion: Maybe.
