    Formats Supported

      :smileyvery-happy:

       

      I have just learned that at least one of my professional journals will be going digital with the February issue (published every other month and just got word the December issue will be the last paper one issued).

       

      Currently, it is available in PDF on the website, so I am hoping it will be PDF in February.  But, I cannot seem to locate this information in my haste today.  Can anyone help with this information.

       

      What formats does Nook Color support.

       

      TIA,

          I also have the same question..  please help us figure it out.  Tho I love barnes and noble, I do not agree with all the ereader prices.  Found one book I bought 5 yrs ago for a dollar less than the ebook price.  You would think with older books, and electronic form, it would be less expensive.  Kobo.com had SOME books and I was curious on how to find what format the Nook Color supports.

                  I tried an adobe site and it said my nook color wasn't supported, is there a special one to go to?  Thank you for the help tho!! It definatly will make things easier in the future!!

                    It is because of the difference in formats that I cannot set aside my oroginal nook, though I prefer my nookColor. I have over 2000 books in the pdb (ereader, now fictionwise owned by b&n). It lessens my loyalty to b&n that they have not given the nook color the ability to access a format which they own. It works fine on my original nook. Please consider adding it to 1.3, and you will greatly increase my inclination not to start moving to a true tablet, where I can download a Stanza app for my pdb books.

                    The prices for any ebooks from the 6 largest publishers are set by the publishers, and the retailer (e.g. B&N, Amazon, Sony, etc.) CANNOT discount them, though they can and do discount paper books, which is why paper books are sometimes cheaper than the ebooks.

                        Sad, but true. The publishing industry is going down the same moronic road as the music industry did, cutting off the nose to spite the face. When enough people find ways around the system, perhaps publishers will wake up and the price of ebooks will drop just like music has.
