I’m a big fan of eBooks, and so are a lot of other folks. I recently heard from someone who had lost access to their favorite novels. “My Nook color stopped working because it would no longer charge and I purchases a Galaxy Tab 4. I’m not able to transfer my Nook books to the new tablet and have had to double-purchase many items. Is there any way to get to my library?”
Good news for you! When you own a Nook or Kindle tablet, all of your books are stored in the cloud as well as being downloaded onto your tablet. Because of the way digital rights management is set up for eBooks, you won’t be able to directly transfer the eBooks to the new tablet the way you can transfer photos or documents, but you can still get to them.
Tap the Google Play Store icon on your PC to go to the app store for your Galaxy tablet.
Search for the Nook app and download it.
You’ll want to log in using the same username and password you used with your Nook/Barnes and Noble account on your Nook Color. Once you’ve logged in, you should have full access to every eBook you ever purchased with that account.
The same holds true with downloading the Kindle app. If you download and install it, you should have access to every eBook you’ve ever purchased through Amazon.
The nice thing about having the Galaxy Android tablet is that you aren’t limited to reading just Nook or Kindle books. You can also download both the Nook and Kindle apps for your iPad or Windows tablet. You can access your entire library from any smartphone or tablet with the app installed and also from your PC.
Shameless self-promotion: Once you get that Kindle app set up, consider checking out my new novel: American Goth.
It may be just as exciting as my Ultimate Guide To Windows 10.
