How do you pay for e-books.
Thinking about buying an Kindle or Nook for my parents. When you power on the reader can you download them directly onto the tablet? We have a router, does it have a wireless card. Thanks for any help. And lastly do you think it is a worth while gift?[/REPLACE]
Can you get library books on the Nook Color e-reader.
Someone told me that you cannot get library books on the Nook color. Is this true.Also, if you have a Nook do you like it. I’m trying to decide between the Nook Color and Sony Daily Edition e-reader.
Hi, k8rich10, you CAN checkout library eBooks with Nook or Nook Color.When choosing an eReader, you need to consider not only the physical properties of the device, but also compare eBook stores behind it. Sony has never been a contender for any comparison by anyone as they only have like 5 books in their Ebook store and their devices are way overpriced for what they offer. Borders is behind Kobo/Cruz devices in US and as you might of heard, Borders is on a brink of bankruptcy. Kindle and Nook are the only devices to be considered as their eBook stores have over a million of free public ebooks as well as over a million of ebooks that you need to pay for available.Having that out of the way, you should then decide which screen you want: e-Ink or LCD. It depends on what you’re reading. If just black & white novels then the better one would be Kindle or e-Ink Nook from Barnes & Noble. If you read electronic magazines or college text books with a lot of color graphs and charts or children’s’ books with a lot of pictures then the better would be Nook Color LCD from Barnes & Noble. Then, you should understand the limitations of e-Ink eReaders – they are limited to be black & white for now they “blink” at each ebook’s page turn, they’re not too good for web browsing, they need external light source for reading when dark, and they cannot handle videos.Whichever device you choose, here’s the advantages of the Nook’s (both e-Ink black & white and Nook Color) over Kindle:- Any Barnes & Noble store provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s- Nook allows to lend Nook books for two weeks to friends and family or share with your other devices that run B&N app (PC, MAC, Android phones, Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad, etc.) Barnes & Noble allows (when you walk in with the Nook to B&N store) to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. With Nook, while in BN store you get exclusive articles from top authors, and great offers including cafe treats and unique deals.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for library ebooks.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for renting text-ebooks.Nook Color is worth mentioning separately as this is a hybrid Android eReader/tablet device, something between Kindle and iPad. Even though Nook Color has LCD touchscreen, it’s a new generation screen which is anti-glare coated and is better performing in sunlight and produces less glare all of which are dooming reading on iPad. Also, the screen is amazing and readable/viewable at wide angles.Overall, Nook Color is more than e-Reader as you can also watch video and use Android applications on it. It’s a hybrid device, much more than just an e-Reader but not a full tablet as it doesn’t have a camera. If all you want is to read novels, Kindle (or the original e-Ink Nook) might be better for you. If you want something more from your device (color graphs and charts of college text books, childrens books, photos and videos, web sites in full color) at half of the price of iPad or Galaxy tab, then Nook Color is your best bet.Nook Color has several apps that already come with the device (Pandora Internet radio, QuickOffice, etc.) Also, Barnes & Noble recently released Nook SDK and Nook Developer platform that will allow most of the existing 100,000 Android apps be ported to it. Also, you can use the Social Settings screen to link your NOOK Color to your Facebook account and your Twitter account. You can also import all your contacts from your Google Gmail account. Once you have linked to Facebook and Twitter and set up email contacts, you can lend and borrow books, recommend books, and share favorite quotes with your friends.

If I download an e-book, can I read it on my laptop?!?
My school offers cheap Textbooks as e-books, and I would rather get them and save the money, but I don’t have a kindle or ipad or anything like that. Will they work on my laptop? I have adobe reader downloaded if that makes any difference too.
Of course you can so don’t worry about it.Adobe Reader should support PDF but I am not sure whether it supports EPUB, which is the most common eBook format.You can download another free software,Adobe Digital Edition, and apply for an Adobe ID. Adobe Digital Edition supports EPUB and PDF thus you can read most eBooks on your laptop.However, if the books are MOBI/AZW/TPZ (from Amazon Kindle), you need to install free Kindle for PC and a Kindle account is indispensable (free to register).In fact, you can read the books on your smartphone if you have one.http://www.epubor.com/best-android-ereader-apps-review.htmlHere is a review on android eReader app.I recommend Aldiko for you if you would like to have a try.http://ebookconverter.blogspot.com/2012/07/aldiko-book-reader-free-android-ebook.htmlThis guide might help u how to start with Aldiko.Hope to work for you.
can a kindle or nook ereader work better to sync books with an android.
I have the samsung admire and I have samples of books from the default google books app. I want to root it and get free books (letting you know in case this changes anything) and transfer them to the Reader and my pc. I read a nook vs kindle forum http://www.kindlevsnookreviews.com/ that kindles work .best with…
From my research on kindle and nook, definitely kindle wins. And syncing would not be a problem in both nook and kindle.There are some areas where a nook wins on clear basis:—Nook is claimed to have a better battery life—MicroSD, which makes it have more memory i.e up to 32gb—ePub support – Lets you read books bought at other stores that use ePub with Adobe DRM.While there are some places where Kindle takes the lead:—Kindle has Text to Speech.—Web Browser. A big feature especially as the browser is relatively decent.—Book Range and Prices. Kindle Store has more books available. For books other than Agency Model books (which are the same price everywhere) Kindle Store tends to have slightly better prices.—Kindle App Store – You now have 70+ Kindle Apps for Kindle WiFi. Nook 2 does not have apps (they are only available on Nook Color).—Kindle WiFi comes with 4 GB of memory of which approximately 3 GB is available to the Kindle owner. Nook 2 only has 2 GB memory of which only 1 GB is available to the Nook owner.—Customer Service – Amazon really puts effort into providing great customer service.Here is another good review you must check:http://budurl.com/ChooseKindleOrNook
Amazon prime, how many free Kindle e books can I download?
and once my month free membership is over do I still get to keep the books I had prior? How much does it cost to join prime? Thanks to all who answer =) Oh how about when I send the sample then buy the book, how do I delete the sample one so I have only that one I bought?
Hey Justanotheryahooligan, Amazon prime is worthless – for $79/year you get 13,000 movies and 10,000 books included while Netflix has millions of movies for $8/month and B&N ebook store has millions of books (and over 2.5 million free ones). Also it’s worth mentioning that if you walk in with any Nook to Barnes & Noble store, you’ll get tech support and you’re allowed to read ANY available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. According to over 1450 people that left 1-2 star reviews on Amazon site for Kindle Fire it is not worth it. Dropping all 5-start reviews (from Amazon employees) and reading middle ground 3-start reviews you understand that it is a deeply flawed device. It is confirmed at this time that many Kindle Fire units have faulty Wi-Fi and people have a lot of issues connecting to internet according to many user reviews. Other issues are that it runs hot to touch, video playback is jerky, touch screen is not responsive and it takes 2-3 touches to register, power button placement is very poor and is prone to accidental power off, all the hype of Silk browser is a fake where the browsing is actually slower than on other Android tablets, etc.Take a look at recently released Nook Tablet (that is Nook Color 2) – it’s been getting rave reviews and it is the best device in it’s class – much better than Kindle Fire. It’s got Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Angry Brids, etc., the best battery life (30% better than Fire), the best non-glare laminated screen (vs. very reflective non-laminated Fire screen), double the RAM and space for apps/photos/movies, microSD slot, a microphone for Skype, and physical volume controls on the side (neither of those is on Kindle Fire), very smooth video playback with excellent screen, and very fast apps load.
I have the Kindle App for my Mac, how do I get my books from my computer to my Android.
I have the Kindle app on my android, I enter the same e-mail and it doesn’t show the books from my computer. I have tried to manually move the books from my computer to my phone but I can’t seem to get it. Help please.
If the books were downloaded through amazon, they should show up when entering the same email in the kindle app on your phone. If that is the case, follow my instructions below *. If they were procured through another source, you will need to transfer the files to your phone. However, you can’t just transfer the files to any old place in your phone. The Kindle app needs to know where to find it. Use your computer to place the files here: “Android” > “data” > “‘com.amazon.kindle” > “files”. If they still haven’t shown up, follow my instructions below*.*You may need to force stop the Kindle App through your task manager and restart the app in order for the books to show up.If you have any further questions, feel free to check out my gigs on fiverr.com at http://fiverr.com/aprmaejun

Can I get free books on the nookcolor or not.
How do i get them is there a tab on the nook that has all free books..
There’s over a million of free public ebooks as well as over a million of ebooks that you need to pay for available through Barnes & Noble eBook store. Prices are generally much lower than for physical books.Out of all eReaders on the market, Nook from Barnes & Noble is the best combination of price and features. You can get Nook e-Ink (3G or Wi-Fi) or Nook Color Android tablet (Wi-Fi). 3G means the internet connection is included for free for the life of the device thus you can download a new book even when you’re walking on the street. Wi-Fi means that you need to have access to wireless hotspot – one example would be any Barnes & Noble store that provides free Wi-Fi to Nook’s or at your home to download ebooks.Nook wins.- Nook allows to lend books for 2 weeks to friends or to your other devices that run B&N app. Barnes & Noble allows (when you walk in with the Nook to B&N store) to read any available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi. With Nook, while in BN store you get exclusive articles from top authors, and great offers including cafe treats and unique deals.- Nook Color is better as a color e-Reader than Kindle simply because it has color and Kindle is black and white. Content that greatly benefits from color – such as kids books and magazines – looks much better and sharper on Nook Color’s screen.- Nook Color is better as an e-Reader in general than iPad. It has a new generation screen which is anti-glare coated and is better performing in sunlight than iPad’s. Also, as it’s smaller in size than iPad, the text appears sharper on Nook’s screen. Also it has 12,000 (more soon) kids books that are built as a game with feedback.- Nook Color has been picked as the editors choice by PC Magazine while pro reviewers of other sites (CNET, ZDNet, Engadget, AllThingsDigital, etc.) mentioned that it tested to be pretty fast for apps and PDF’s, and has a beautiful screen.- Overall, Nook Color is more than e-Reader as you can also watch video and use Android applications on it. It’s a hybrid device, much more than just an e-Reader but not a full tablet as it doesn’t have a camera. If all you want is to read novels, Kindle (or the original e-Ink Nook) might be better for you. If you want something more from your device at half of the price of iPad or Galaxy tab, then Nook Color is your best bet.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for library ebooks.- Nook (unlike Kindle) can be used for renting text-ebooks.
E books and how to purchase books?
How do you get the books to read on a kindle or similar android E book and how much are the books
You go to the relevant website (amazon.com) and click on Ebooks or you touch the kindle icon on your android and it takes you to the website. If you don’t already have a credit/debit card attached to your account you have to set that up first. Then you select the book you want, pay for it, then download it. The prices vary with how new the book is; some are free!
