You can transfer downloaded eBooks to your NOOK using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). These instructions are designed to work with the E Ink NOOKs as well as the NOOK Color and Tablet. If you have a NOOK Color, Tablet, HD, or HD+, you can download our app, and access eBooks and audiobooks directly on your device—no transfer required.
Note: These instructions are for ADE 2.0 or newer. We recommend always using the latest version of ADE.
