How to Read Nook Books on Kindle Fire?
Can I read Nook books on Kindle Fire? My Nook was damaged at an airport and I can no longer use the touchscreen. The warranty doesn't cover accidental damage so I am stuck having to buy an entirely new one. I was thinking of switching to the new Kindle Fire to avoid this problem in the future but was hesitant because I have bought quite a few "nook books" from B&N and was worried I might not be able to transfer them over. Does anyone know if it's possible to read books bought from B&N on a Kindle Fire? Thanks a lot!
