I put a lot of my documents in my Nook form my computer. i use a program called calibre that formats pdf's or any other kind of non-proprietary document to read on your Nook. I like it and use it often. Also, your wifi internet browser on the Nook will still work as long as you are at a wifi spot. Your 3G Nook on the other hand probably wont work.
Posted By Carolie on 05-19-2011 5:44 AM My husband and I were SO anti-e-reader. We love books and have a bajillion of them. However, when he was aboard the Essex, he didn't have room to take enough reading material for an entire deployment. We bought him a Kindle, then ended up buying me one, too. Now, we're both addicted. Yes, we still read (and purchase) paper books, but it's just so much easier to travel with one Kindle (or read my Kindle books on my iPhone) rather than schlep around a bunch of heavy books. It's also fantastic to get an eagerly-awaited new book IMMEDIATELY. When we were in Japan, we could only purchase Kindle books online, and transfer them via USB. But things have changed, and when I visited in January of this year, I was able to purchase and download some Kindle books wirelessly in Japan with no charge for the wireless connection. I still chafe at the fact that the e-books are often only a dollar less than the paper version, and sometimes cost MORE than the paperback version -- after all, it costs them nothing to print an e-book, and I can't loan it, sell it or give it away! But we've succumbed to the convenience factor in a very big way.
