You will see all of your B&N books as soon as you register to your account but you may have to download each of them by clicking on them from the new Nook. They will have a "download" banner on them if they need to be downloaded. Not sure why some books download automatically and some you have to click on, but it only takes a couple seconds for each one.
Text clarity seems to be very subjective and personal to each reader. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I am one of the ones who doesn't see much difference and I've had all three e-ink Nooks.
I recommend getting a micro SD card and sideloading all of your non-B&N content onto it so that you don't have to do it again if you get another Nook in the future or if you have to return the new one for some reason. You just take the card out and insert into the new Nook. So easy. I don't use the internal memory for any of my sideloaded books.
Good luck! You're going to love it.

The original Nook and the NST have about the same clarity level. Some say the new glow is less clear, others say it's not enough to be significant.
There are two aspects of "clarity":
- A reduction in sharpness. No one has claimed that (and I checked for it in detail).
- A reduction in contrast. This is where individuals have differing opinions.
Note that a reduction in contrast can appear (depending on one's vision, lighting, etc) to be a reduction in sharpness. I used the screensaver images to compare sharpness (where there are fine lines displayed), and found it to be the same.
2 Nook Touch (one Ltd. Ed.): B&N 1.2.1 rooted; Dell Venue 8 Pro: Windows 8.1
2 Nook 1stEd/3G: B&N 1.7.0 rooted.; Acer Iconia A500: Android 4.0.3 rooted;
Nook Color: B&N 1.4.3 rooted; Samsung Galaxy Tab2 (7.0"): Android 4.2.2 rooted
Customer loyalty is earned, not commanded or deserved, and easily lost.
Never suspect intent where incompetence will do.
