NOOK Study and eTextbook FAQs
What is an eTextbook?
An eTextbook is a digital, downloadable version of a physical textbook.
What devices can I read an eTextbook on?
eTextbooks purchased from Barnes & Noble are meant to be read on your computer via ou
r NOOK Study
application. You
use your NOOK or mobile device to read textbooks as the screens are too small to
properly view the contents.
Can I read my eTextbook on more than one computer?
Yes, you can read your eTextbook on up to two (2) computer
Do I need to be connected to the Internet to read my eTextbook?
No. Once you’ve downloaded your eTextbook it is accessible to you anytime from NOOK Study. However,
you will need to be online to take advantage of the Lookup features or when syncing your
Can I access my eTextbook from the web?
No, eTextbooks from Barnes & Noble are not accessible via the web. You can only access them with the
NOOK Study eReader application.
Will my eTextbook look exactly like the physical version?
Yes, the publis
hers have worked hard to preserve all the content from the physical version to be used in the
digital version. That means you’ll see the same graphs, charts, tables, drawings, etc. as you normally would
in the physical version.
Why are there copy and prin
t restrictions on eTextbooks?
Restrictions have been set by the publishers to prevent unauthorized reproduction of their textbooks. These
restrictions limit the number of pages you can copy and print from a book. We list each book’s restrictions on
the pro
duct details page on the website and the Book Info page in the NOOK Study application. After you
purchase a book, you can download it to your NOOK Study application. Before you download the book, you
can select whether you want to download the Enhanced ver
sion or Regular version. The Enhanced version
allows for copy and print; the Regular version does not.
What do the copy and print restrictions for eTextbooks actually mean?
Printing is tracked in whole pages, regardless of whether you select a paragraph o
r the whole page of text.
You may not send more than 10 pages at a time to the printer. Copying is tracked in “copy instances.” A
copy instance is worth 1,000 characters (including spaces). You receive a fixed allotment for print and copy
when you first do
wnload your book. After you start using your allotment, you accrue pages back.
Why can’t I find the textbook I want in digital format?
We currently offer thousands of textbook titles in digital format. However we realize there are still many titles
not ye
t available on BN.COM and we are working closely with the publishers to continuously increase our
collection of eTextbooks. The best way to submit requests for textbooks is to send an email to
. We’ll keep you posted as to additional ways to submit requests as they
become available. Include as much of the following data elements as possible:
Full title
Either 10 or 13 ISBN
Copyright year
Please note
that we will consolidate requests received and work with the publishers but we cannot promise
that the requests will be fulfilled since it is up to the publishers to make that determination. We can promise
that we will do everything we can to make as many
titles available in NOOK Study as possible.
If my title comes with supplemental materials, will I get them with my purchase of the eTextbook
Due to the digital delivery format, eTextbooks do not include CD content or other companion materials th
may be available with the new physical book.
Can I try out an eTextbook before buying it?
Yes, you can! We offer a 7

day free trial of most of our available eTextbook titles.
How does the free trial work?
The free trial gives you full access to the en
tire book during the trial period. However you will not be able to
copy or print pages from the book. We recommend you use this time to become familiar with the NOOK
Study interface and get acclimated to reading the textbook on your computer. At the end of
the free trial
period, you will have the option to buy or rent the textbook.
If I rent my eTextbook, do I need to return anything at the end of the rental period?
No, because your textbook is digital, there is nothing to return! If you choose to not buy
the book or re

rent it
at the end of your rental period, your license will simply expire and you will not have access to your textbook.
You will still be able to access your notes. However, we do offer you a grace period after the expiration of
your rental
period to buy or re

rent the book.
Can I return a
eTextbook that I purchased or rented?
If your eTextbook has not been downloaded or you have not used your access code, you can call Customer
Service for a full refund. If you have downloaded your eTextbo
ok already, you can only request a refund
within 7 days of download.
Can I purchase eTextbooks if I reside outside of the U.S.?
Due to contractual obligations with publishers, eTextbooks can currently only be purchased by customers
residing in the U.S and
I’m having some issues with my book (it won’t open or it doesn’t look right)

what do I do?
Please call our Customer Service team at 1



BOOK and we’ll be happy to assist you.
Device Questions
If I switch computers, what happens to all
of the notes and annotations that I make in my book?
All of your notes and annotations on titles you’ve purchased are safely backed up to the Barnes & Noble
“cloud.” That way, if you have NOOK Study installed on a second computer and you switch to it, you
will still
see all of your notes and annotations.
How many times can I download my eTextbook?
Each eTextbook that you purchase can only be downloaded onto a maximum of two devices (e.g. home
computer and your laptop) per the Digital Rights Management rul
es set by the publishers. But please note,
you can download your eTextbook to that same machine as many times as you like.

  • Purchased full version from Google Market.  Best ePUB reader available for Android.  Retains formatting in every ePUB I have thrown at it.  Support for PDF is mediocre, but has gotten better with each update.  User interface is intuitive, and books can be stored in any folder on eMMC or SD.  I LOVE this reader and recommend it to everyone.  My wife and coworkers are all Mantano converts.

    Also, there are options to change margins and spacing. You might have to dig around, but they are there.

  • Bluefire Reader:

    Retains most formatting features from the ePUBs.  Very lightweight on system resources, too.  For a free program, it does everything I’d expect, and better than most others.  Not many options (especially compared to FBReader or Cool Reader), but does an okay job without them.  PDF support isn’t good, but it is there.  You get better PDF viewing from Mantano Reader (and even it isn’t great).  If you’re wanting something to read PDFs look elsewhere.

    From my experiences with Bluefire, I would recommend this to anyone not willing to shell out the cash for Mantano.  If you don’t like it, or if you absolutely must have every option available to you, then please check out Cool Reader.  Only reason I would rank Bluefire above Cool Reader is because the files look great from the second you open them.  With Cool Reader, you have to do some tweaking of settings before you get a book-like experience.

  • Alexa Rae

    It would be awesome if you could post the Course Smart App for Android! I use it all the time from my computer but have recently purchased the Kobo Vox hoping I could get it on there.

  •  We just put this online for you.

  • Alexa Rae

    You are awesome!! That just saved me so much frustration. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! 🙂

  • Concerned_curious

    Isnt this a paid app on the android market? Is it actually free on the goodereader app site?
    or are we choosing to ignore something here..

  •  Hello, what app are you talking about? We only offer free apps that are marketed as “free” or the “lite” versions. In many cases paid apps have a free or lite versions for people to try before you commit to the payment.  What application are you talking about in specific so we can investigate this issue and remove it if you are right.

  • Concerned_curious

    I saw montano and repligo reader. Havent tried it to see if they are free versions. Would be good if it was clearly mentioned that an app was the full version or a free/lite version of a full version. For example, Scrabble is mentioned as: Scrabble Free

  •  Yes, both of those versions are the free and lite versions. The very premise of our app store is to only give free and lite apps away. We are very against piracy and will never offer any app unless the company gives us exclusive access to give it away for free for a limited time.

    We are working on some partnerships with various big name companies producing enhanced books for android to let us give them away for free very soon.

  • Kam-Yung Soh

    OverDrive Media Console on the Google Android Market is now at version  Will the version in this store be updated soon?

  •  We just updated it for you

  • Kam-Yung Soh

     That was fast.  Thanks!

  •  We tend to address all concerns and problems fairly quickly.

  • Molly

    Can this be used with a Nook Color?  The description lists nook, but i tried downloading, then my nook said no, that it isn’t from their shop and won’t let me install it.  

  •  Nook recently updated their firmware to not allow 3rd party apps installed anymore. You can root your device though to get it on it. The process is easy.

  • Dorothy Atkinson

    What is an Android? I don’t see anything for the Kobo WIFI eReader so I guess I don’t have to be concerned.
    I just wondered what it was. Thank you

  •  Android is an operating system. The Kobo Vox tablet uses it but not the e-ink based reader you own.

  • Melclarke64

    I am not sure yet i want the page turning app but does this work with kobo vox?

  • Bea Gonzalez

    Am I doing something wrong?  I have tried downloading this App to my playbook from here but it doesn’t show up anywhere once it has downloaded!!! Anything I can do?

  •  You need to go to our Playbook download section and download it from there.

  • Amit

    hi, just bought playbook and is it possible to borrow e-pub files on playbook like in kobo e-reader from a vancouver library using your software? thanks…

  •  Yes, you need to download the overdrive media console in the Playbook section

  • PBuser

    Thanks so much for the help. I have installed 4 apps and 3 of them work correctly. The Aldiko app crashes the second it opens stating, “The application Aldiko (process com.aldiko.android) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Is anyone else experiencing this crash and if so any suggestions on what do try?

  • Andrestarosa

  • Csm0530

    can you put the sony reader app on the kindle fire?

  • Dah4rail

    Hi,  I have downloaded v2.4.1 to my Playbook and tried to add my local library but, although I download books from there to my WIN Netbook using Adobe Epub, the lobrary is’nt covered in the Overdrive listings.

    In point of fact none of the Libraries in the West Midlands area of Great Vritain are listed although, to my certain knowledge a lot of them, if not all, have ebokk lending facilities.

    Is this ommision likely to be addressed in the future?


  • Gamesforpan

    Tried to download flash & angry birds on my pandigital novel, 7″, black 4gb & got unable to load.

    Need some help. Larry

  •  In your settings menu do you have unknown sources checkmarked? Look in your settings menu. This allows you to install our apps.

  • Gamesforpan

    The setting is checked. Now what? When I posted this I got security warning. Does this mean anything.

  • Williblue

    I was told that I need a file viewer to open word documents on my Kindle Fire. Can you tell me which viewer will work best for me? Thanks.

  • Himdeep Rekhi

    Actually in my personal experience Cool Reader is far superior to Blue Fire reader. Cool reader not only has more features, it also has very realistic paper turn. Blue Fire on the other hand, as you correctly pointed out works the moment you install it but its page turn effect is like turning a cardboard.

    So, if one is willing to spend 5-10 minutes, then cool reader is a much better choice. By the way, I am using Blue Fire on iPad 2 & cool Reader on Samsung Tab & on Android Cool it is free.

  • Clisvet

    How cani search for a certain app? Like talking tom cat

  • photophobia

    Would it be possible to get the newest version? I think Sony just released a new one. (http://blog.sony.com/reader-store-gives-you-more-freedom-to-read-anytime-anywhere) Thanks!

  • Ilovemyplaybook

  • Pasta288

    I bought my pandigital SuperNova R80B400 about 5 months ago and am just now finding the time to explore and found many of my downloads only on the Android…just a few saved to the SD card. Should i backup everything and make copies of the apps I want? Several apps say Force Close?? I may be better off resetting the entire Android…& so far can’t download an e-reader. I sure could use some advice & support. My Firmware always is up to date too! It seems like someday it should be in need of updating. I’m glad I found this forum as my Android is very limited in uses.
    Thanx for any suggestions!

I put the KOBO android app on my Playbook, from your site, and I am not able to access any of the books that are in my account with KOBO. They will not sync, but they do appear as book covers. If I try to read any of the books I get a warning message that the KOBO android process has stopped, please try again, and all I can do is force close. What is wrong?

    Why Buy a Kindle?

    Many people have come to love the
    original Kindle eBook Reader, but as technology has evolved, so has
    Amazon’s Kindle. Today, Amazon offers two different types of Kindles –
    tablet/eBook reader combos and its simple eBook readers that began it
    all. From its beginning, the Kindle reader has allowed users to kick
    back and enjoy a book without picking up an actual book. It also allows
    users to carry loads of books, magazines, newspapers and more around
    with them without hurting their backs. And now, with Amazon’s line of
    Kindle Fires you can do much, much more with the device – like run
    applications, listen to music and stream videos.
