Nook for PC – B&N discontinued Nook for PC along time ago, but you can still use it to access your Nook books and download them to a Windows computer. Workaround: Barnes and Noble Nook e-reader app no longer available for PC, Mac #BarnesAndNoble Posted on September 19, 2017 by coldstreams I discovered after a Mac OS X update that my very old Nook e-reader app for Mac OS X no longer works – and that Nook discontinued the app for PC and Mac desktops in 2013.The 'Nook' app was actually released today, it just so happens it was the old Barnes. Our website provides a free download of NOOK for Mac 3.0.0. The program can also be called 'NOOK for Mac 3'. The following version: 3.0 is the most frequently downloaded one by the program users. The program lies within Lifestyle Tools, more precisely Entertainment. This free Mac application was originally produced by Barnesandnoble.com llc.
I have tried a firefox Greasemonkey plugin which in theory is supposed to provide a direct download button, but I can't find the 'download' link or button on the site and I haven't seen any visual guides that show me where it should be. I have tried downloading NookStudy to use, but the system refuses to log me in and I see that B&N has discontinued support for that. I am willing to try a phone workaround if absolutely necessary but I'd rather work directly through my PC if I can.
If this is totally impossible to do, I get that too. If need be, I would rather spend the money entirely on analog books rather than epubs I can't download. I do not trust B&N or Nook as far as I can throw them and fully expect them to crash sometime in the next few years, and I am incredibly uninterested in losing all my books with them. But if I can spend this money on ebooks instead, I'd rather do that. I move semi-frequently and I do a lot of reading on my eReader as it is. (Ironically, that's a Nook Simple Touch--but my next one won't be; I'm absolutely done with B&N and if I didn't have a gift card I would not be buying from them.)
Wretched company. What are my options here?
You can also track down a copy of the discontinued 'Nook for PC' application, which allegedly still works (win2k through win7-- should work on win8/10 really)
The downloads will have DRM, but from what I'm reading, that's not a major obstacle; I just can't advise you to do anything like that. Nook books are EPUB with DRM, and I'm sure EPUB is at least passingly familiar to a Calibre user.
If you have an Android or iOS device, you can install the Nook app, and that will give you a local file you can put through the ringer in Calibre. The hard part will be locating the files once they're on your device, and from my experience I imagine that iOS would make that really difficult, while Android will be relatively easy. Get yourself a free ebook for Nook and see what you can do.

People I know that do this on a large-scale basis use a modified version of the Alf's tools. I'll send you details on the modified workflow by mefi mail.

According to this article from 11 July 2015, the NookStudy app still works, though. It might be worth another try.
A Google search will lead you to various other tools that supposedly remove DRM from Nook epubs. However, because B&N used your credit card number as an input to the key generator, the third-party decryprtion tools need it too -- making them scary to use.
On preview: Yes, the Apprentice Alf tools are what you want for Calibre. Hopefully ryanrs has a working way to get the keyfile you need to use them.

Barnes And Noble
--Open the nook app for PC and download the book you just bought.
--Open calibre and click the 'add books' icon on your far left (nook books are in 'this pc'--->'documents'--->'my barnes & noble ebooks')
--When I click to open the book it gives me the option to open it in both calibre and adobe. I just double-checked, and the book is definitely in my calibre library.
You could also buy the book directly on your nook and then plug the nook into your computer. Then you open calibre, click the 'add books' icon, and add the ebook to your library from your device. Then it's both on your device and on your pc.

Yeah, um, something's not right here, because mine is full of epub files (Documents--->my Barnes & Noble ebooks -->my email address). When you open the nook app, can you a)see your books and have you b)actually downloaded (not just purchased) your books. If the book is downloaded there will be a big green 'read now' button as well as a smaller gray 'remove local copy' option. (Everything you've ever bought with your email will show up in the app; mine has things from years ago before I had this computer, and some of the old stuff I've never bothered to download again, but I can whenever I want to.)
Also, just spitballing, but on the off chance this is the issue---if you can't even SEE your books in the app to download, double-check that you are signed into the app with the same email you used to buy your books. Like, if you signed into bn.com as [email protected] and then signed into the app as [email protected], it doesn't know you're the same person, and you have to sign out and then back into the app with the same email address as you did on the site. In the app, your email is displayed on the upper left.
Am I missing anything or am I correct in understanding I won't be able to transfer my 100 or so books to my Macbook.
Yes, of course you can transfer your books to a mac. The instructions I wrote above are for a windows 10 pc, but the steps are the same. The easiest way to do it is just to plug the nook into your mac with the usb.
