Got a new Kindle Fire. Can any tech-types here walk me thru the process, if one exists, of transferring my books from my Nook to the Kindle?

Got a new Kindle Fire. Can any tech-types here walk me thru the process, if one exists, of transferring my books from my Nook to the Kindle?I don't know if you can. The Nook and the Kindle use different digital rights management formats and are incompatible to the best of my knowledge. It's possible that since Barnes & Noble is discontinuing the Nook Amazon may try to work something out so that they can help former Nook users switch to Kindle more easily but I don't think they have anything set up yet.The best resource I found for information on e-book readers is a forum called Mobile Read ( mobileread.com ). The people there are very knowledgeable, and if there's any way to make such a transfer, they will most likely know about it. Good luck! And enjoy the Kindle. I've had one for a while and absolutely love it.

Thanks, lyssandri! I found a post on CNET indicating that you can download a Nook app onto your Fire. I'll also try the forum you suggested. As you say, since Nook, and indeed, Barnes & Noble itself are headed into nothingness and nonbeing, probably lots of Nook users are wondering the same thing.

Perfect, Volkonski! I'm so glad that the antics of that insane racist moron Orly Taitz led me to join this forum.

For anyone snapping up the Nook HD+ ($149), it can now get its apps from Google Play, so the first thing I put on it was the Kindle app.My new Kindle Fire HD was supposed to be here today, but FedEx was late getting it to my local PO, so I might be able to comment on that tomorrow.No, I'm not a gadget freak -- there's a reason I have to have all these (and the Chromebook).

Deal Price: $1.99 eachThe complete works of Ed McBain, it looks like. I liked his 87th Precinct novels, but not enough to to order them for my Kindle.He wrote over 50 of the 87th Precinct novels alone. Throw in another 15 or so Matthew Hope books and we're waaaaay past 50 already. Including all his other pseudonyms, I wouldn't be surprised if he has written 300 or more books. I did love The Blackboard Jungle though.

Political Sniping Explodes on Amazon After Obama’s Kindle Singles Interview





President Obama is front and center on Amazon’s homepage right now, and his arrival has brought partisanship and political sniping along with it.





Amazon is featuring a [link]free 15-page Kindle Single interview,[/link] with the president, a day after he [link]toured one of the company’s warehouses,http://allthingsd.com/20130728/with-pre ... ouse-jobs/[/link].





But if you want some help deciding whether the read is worth your time, well, don’t expect to get it from the Amazon reviews section.





Currently, 107 of the 122 reviews rate the interview with either five stars or one star. If you’re guessing that political party affiliations are playing a role in the ratings and reviews content, you probably read the headline of this post.

[link]New York Times,http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/0 ... w-program/[/link]





Amazon Pairs Print and Digital Books With New Program





For most readers, print and electronic books are an either-or proposition. There just isn’t a compelling reason to buy both editions of one book, at least not at full price.





Amazon is about to test how much appetite there is for combined print-and-digital book purchases if it cuts the price of Kindle books to less than that of a Starbucks latte.





On Tuesday, the company plans to announce a new program, Kindle MatchBook, that lets its customers buy the electronic versions of books they have already purchased in print form for either $2.99, $1.99, $0.99 or free. That’s far less than the $11 or more that Amazon typically charges for standalone purchases of the latest Kindle titles.





One benefit of MatchBook is that Amazon will let its customers buy Kindle editions of books that they purchased in print [highlight]as far back as 1995[/highlight], the year Amazon opened for business. The discounted Kindle edition prices apply to book purchases made in the future on Amazon too.
