Do you haz a nook too? Invite da lady with your nook and we can become Nook friends and lend each other books.
"Wut?" you says. YES YES YES! If you invite other nook owners by da email address dey gave B&N you can be speshul nook friends and even borrow books!
Dis how to find furends on Simple Touch Nook. YMMV. Remember nook has to be connected to wireless or mobile data to communicate with B&N.
- Press nook hard key. A menu should pop up at bottom of screen.
- Press rightmost softkey, Settings. A list of settings categories appears.
- Press Social softkey. Another menu appears.
- Press Link to Facebook, Twitter and Google softkey. Sign in to your social sites to get some friends.
- From Social screen you can also invite friends by the email address they used to sign in to the B&N site.
- From Social Screen you can also set options to share books and to block individual books from prying eyes.
Da nook reads pdf and ePub plus images in jpg, gif, png and bmp.
"Sideload" means transfer files between your puter and da nook. You can sideload backgrounds, screensavers and ebooks you downloads from da web. Dis my favrit sites to find Free ebooks.
To sideload, connect the nook to your computer with the USB cable. Wait a couple of minutes while it recognizes the device, finds driver, then tells you it connected. Now dat nook looks like a hard drive! Look for a folder named "books," dat where you put pdfs and epubs.
- Project Gutenberg "offers over 39,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books, free kindle books, download them or read them online."
- epubBooks "epubBooks is a service that allows for many different online ebooks stores to be searched simultaneously."
- Open Library "The World's classic literature at your fingertips. Over 1,000,000 free ebook titles available.
- feedbooks "With Feedbooks, enjoy your books on any device : smartphones, tablets or dedicated readers."
- ManyBooks.net "the best ebooks at the best price: free!"
- The Nook Blog Barnes & Noble Book Club - Free Fridays offer guess what? Free books!
Screensavers is da authors whose dour visages appear when da nook goes to sleep. Get more nook screen savers from da innerwebs from sites like nook-look "Where your nook gets its attitude on." Oh oh oh da lady say she making 800x600 screensavers wif da GIMP just for my nook furends. Download, unzip, and "sideload" entire folder to dat screensaver directory. Choose Screen option under Settings to choose a set of screensavers.
It possible dat Amazon Kindle can read pdf, epub, lit plus mobi, but I can't say cuz I neber seen one. Books for either nook or kindle are encrypted but nook ebooks are supposedly easier to crack because of a weaker encryption algorithm.
Thanks to @Pumpkinpuddy, @RealFakeGator and @smokey8 for input and @crazykittyKat1 for lending me dat "Stick Dog" book.
