Reading Kindle format books on Nook HD+
[ Edited ]

I have several books in Kindle format that I read using a Kindle reader application on my PC. I have never owned a Kindle.  Is there any way I can download these Kindle format books so I can read them on my Nook HD+ to read?

 

I believe that if I could get the books to download in pdf or epub format, then I could read them on the Nook HD+ but I don't see any way to accomplish that.

 

Is there an application that I can download to my Nook HD+ that will read the Kindle books? With all the hundreds (maybe thousands?) of applications on the market, I would hope someone has thought of this. I understand that Kindle and Nook are competing companies so if an application exists it would likely have to be written by a 3rd party (which is where the vast majority of appilications come from anyway).  

 

Can anyone help me?

The easiest way to read Kindle books on a NOOK HD/HD+ (or on a rooted or dual-booted NC/NT) is via the Kindle app for Android (from Google Play). However, if your goal is to read Kindle books via the native NOOK reader, then you can use Calibre to convert the Kindle books to epubs and sideload them to the NOOK.

 

Another option - albeit potentially controversial* - is to upload your Kindle books to CodexCloud, which will:

  • Store your books in the cloud (as the name suggests)
  • Automatically convert them to downloadable epubs (using Calibre)
  • Make them readable in several ways: online at CodexCloud, on your device via the CodexCloud app for Android (also from Google Play), or on any device or ereader app compatible with epubs (including the NOOK's native reader)

* IMPORTANT: CodexCloud is controversial because content saved to CodexCloud lists becomes accessible to all site members, which violates copyright law. But if you don't save your uploaded books to a CodexCloud list, then no one but you will be able to see them.

I did not root my Nook HD+ and installed the Kindle app on there with no issues and can access my entire Kindle library with no problems.

I just learned how to do this today. Go into your Nook. Go to your white Google shopping bag.  Go into the Apps section of the shopping bag/play store and do a search for "Kindle".  It's a free download and downloads the Kindle application directly onto your Nook.  You can download any Kindle books you've previously ordered for free and you can now buy Kindle books from Amazon and your reader now reads both Kindle and Nook.  Obviously, you will have to open the "Kindle" application on your Nook before reading an actual Kindle book but it works and it works very well.  Hope that helps.
