I went and looked and I actually have a number of WL book available at Fictionwise, so I'm waiting for your next fabulous coupon. Being that they're a B&N company and I have a Nook, do these load in to the Nook via the B&N account or do they go in through Adobe Digital? Also, (since my new Nook is sitting here waiting) are there any issues getting these books to transfer from one to the other when I switch Nooks at Christmas?

I want to know if I can spend money now or need to just wait until I have the new machine.

Nancy if you buy from the multi-format column, you can definitely put them on the Nook. Download them to your computer, then you can load them the way you normally do, via USB?

As for the secure format books, I don't know. You may be able to find some info on the fictionwise web site.

Nancy, as long as you are not over the number of authorized devices for your Adobe Digital account (I believe it is 4 devices but I am probably wrong) you can sideload the content onto your new Nook as well.

The secure format books can also be read on the Nook.  You use the credit card number that you purchased the secure ereader format books to unlock the books so you can read them after you sideload them onto the Nook.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more details.
