This seems like a stupid question even to myself, but Amazon sells Nooks, it seems like they might also sell Nookbooks. I have a rather large credit there due to the textbook buyback program. Do you know?

I don't have a Nook, but I don't think so unless the files are without DRM and can be converted to something else. AFAIK, Amazon only sells the .azw format.

I think azw can be converted to another format with Calibre as long as it's not DRM locked.

There's a discussion at...
