    Nook kids books on Nook for PC

      To see if my children would enjoy it, I purchased (even though it is free) "The Elephant's Child, How the Elephant Got Its Trunk" for Nook for PC.  However, I can't download it using the Nook for PC app.  Everytime I try, I get a message that says "We are experiencing technical difficulties at this time - please try again later (Download: 2082)"  What does this mean and does that mean that none of the Nook kids books that are picture books can be read on Nook for PC?  Thanks.

          @primetime34,

          NOOK kids digital picture books are designed especially for NOOKcolor. They feature vivid color display and rely on touch-screen to enlarge text, zoom in & pan around illustration and require speakers for the Read to Me feature.  NOOK kids books can be read on NOOKcolor and coming soon on a NOOK kids app on the iPAD.

              soon there will be lots more kids books one they release the SDK.  Right now, nook kids books are limited to the very very few books that the devs have deamed 'worthy'

               

              Quite frankly, I think they suck donkey balls.

               

              I was looking for something that would blow me away and instead I got a nelly voiced voice actor doing a really bad reading in the free nookbook.I can

               

              If they'd only release the sdk, there woudl be many more books.   And there would be books designed for the nookcolor... and not just crappy books... okay... my books may be crappry but you will buy them as they are the only other books out there.

              I believe that some of the books can only be viewed by the nook color.  I'm not sure about the elephant book, however there is a place on the screen that will say what it will download to.  side note:  my kids like the nookcolor, 3,7 and 12.  (all boys and not big readers)  good luck

                If you have an IPad you can download children's books with an IPad app "nook kids for IPad app" It works very well.
