The NOOKs are designed for wireless downloading from B&N. It is possible to download non-wirelessly, but it's a whole lot more trouble.
First you need to install the NOOK for PC or NOOK for Mac program, as appropriate. Then download your e-books into that program. I believe that the latest versions of those programs give you the ability to synchronize directly to your NOOK. If not, you'll need to do it "by hand", locating the e-books in the NOOK program folder and copying them to your NOOK device folder. Where you copy from and to depends on the equipment you have.
For Windows, the NOOK for PC e-book folder is in My Documents/My Barnes & Noble eBooks/youraccountemailaddress. For NOOK 1st Edition, the e-books need to be copied into My Documents or onto an added SD card, then you need to look for them in the My Documents section of your library.
If you have another type of computer and/or another type of NOOK, you'll need to let us know what you're using so we can advise you.
Wireless is a lot easier.

While Nook for PC doesn't do a synchronization with the Nook in that you can't simply click on something and have your books automatically transfer, you can copy the books to the Nook from within Nook for PC using the Manage Devices option in the My Stuff area of Nook for PC. Follow these instructions.
