    How can I tell the Nook android app that my epub books are on my 64Gb SD card, not the 16Gb internal SD card?

      I recently bought a Samsung A10.1, and installed the Nook app on it. Since I have about 10,000 epub format books (Don't ask. Please.) that I would like to use the 64Gb micro SD chip as the NOOK directory, but I can't see how to change the default /NOOK file location.

       

      I've considered rooting the Samsung and changing the /NOOK entry to a symbolic link to something on the larger SD card, but I'm not sure if that would work. (Especially since the micro card is easily dislodged. But that's a different issue.)

       

      So, basically, my question is, "Is there any (easy?) way to tell the Nook app to use the SD card?"

          Are we talking about downloaded B&N books or sideloaded epub files that you manually copy?

           

          For downloaded books, there's an option to download automatically to the SD card (Settings - Download & Storage - Download to SD Card).  Not all books are eligible for download to the SD card (it's a publisher option), but I find most are.

           

          For sideloaded books, I found it was as easy as creating a top-level directory on the SD card called NOOK (and a subdirectory called Books) and copied my epub files there.  The Nook app automatically saw the books as they were copied there.
