How to Download Nook Books to PC 2021
According to CNN Business, “Barnes & Noble attributed the decline to a drop in store traffic. Online sales also dropped 14.3% because of fewer promotions, including in Barnes & Noble’s Nook tablet business“. As time goes, readers don’t hold so much confident on Barnes & Noble’s business, so does the Nook eBook business. Actually, Barnes & Noble is the first company who reduces the download options among the major eBook vendors. Now, it is very hard for readers to download the Nook books to their computers because they have discontinued the Nook for PC/Mac and web downloading option. I know many people have consumed ebooks in this store for a very long time. Apparently, reducing the methods of downloading Nook books push away the customers who want to purchase ebooks from Barnes & Noble. In my aspect, this action will take some responsible for the decline of Barnes & Noble’s revenue. To address Bares & Noble’s wrong action, I will share 3 different ways to download Nook books so you can back up your purchased nook books safe locally.
Although Barnes & Noble had tried hard to discontinue the Nook book reading on computer, we still can find valid ways to download Nook books to computer, especially for Windows system users.
The three methods worked smoothly when I tested them, but now only Nook Windows App is still working.
