How to share Nook Books within the same house
If you all share the same B&N account you just download as you normally would into all the Nooks.
If you have more than one Nook in the same household AND you have separate Barnes and Noble accounts, you can still share Nook books for free. Here is how…
- Copy your B&N e-books from each of your Nooks to your computer into folders (make a new folder for each account).
- Copy from the folder you made in step 1 into the ‘my documents’ on whichever Nook you want.
- The first time you read a book on the new Nook it will ask you for the name and credit card number used to buy that book — enter it and you should never have to do this again for this or any other e-book you transfer.
This should work for e-books purchased at Barnes and Noble, Fictionwise and eReader.com as well.
You can and will want to share Adobe Digital Editions. They allow you to have up to 6 computers and 6 devices on each account. Take advantage of this because it keeps things simple with regards to sharing. If you have Sony Reader e-books, you should use the exact e-mail you used for the Adobe account. If you already signed up under a different e-mail, you can go into your settings and change it.
