I purchased an ebook from B&N and downloaded it to my laptop. My nook signal strength is unreliable. User guide Ver. 1.1 page 49 says that I can transfer the ebook from my PC to my nook via the USB cable but doesn't explain how to do it.
How do I transfer a BN ebook from my PC to my nook?

The full users guide does explain this in detail.
The cliff notes version:
Plug the cable into the nook and the other end into your computer.
Use the file manager (explorer) to look where your e-books are stored.
Mine are in "My documents\My BN eBooks\[my email address\
Select the book you want (usually ends in .epub).
Open anothe copy of explorer and navigate to the drive letter that is your nook.
Then navigate to my documents on the nook.
Then in the explorer where you found your e-book, click and drag the .epub file to
your nook's "my documents " directory.
Without knowing the specific version of the operating system on your computer, I can't be
more precise than that.
The hardest part is finding the .epub files on your computer.
Its a sometimes easier to find better signal strength than mess around with cabeling up every day.
Maybe invest in a wireless router. They can be had for around 30 bucks.

Okay, I downloaded my B&N purchased books to my PC reader and then transfered them to My Documents directory on my Nook.
Now I fully expect that when I take my Nook into a B&N store a second copy of the books will be downloaded to My B&N Books directory.
So I'll end up with 2 copies of each book on my Nook. Bah-Humbug. B&N should have Anticipated this situation and put a "Purchased" marker on the books in the first place and then allow them to be loaded in the correct directory.
