Can a Nook support PDF files?

Post by nymeriastar » 08 Jul 2016, 14:07

Hello!

I am researching which ebook reader to purchase. I am not a huge fan of them, truth be told, but I suppose it is time to upgrade. My main concern is about if a Nook can support pdf files. I have a few books in a PDF format and if I can read them in a Nook, it'd be fantastic. Also, I want a simple nook- no apps, nothing fancy. I just want it to read and that is it; I get easily distracted by apps and notifications, which is my bane when it comes to reading ebooks. :techie-studyinggray:

I think Nook supports EPUB, but you can use the free caliber library to convert files.

Ah, thank you. I'll investigate then.

My Nook supports PDF files easily. The reading experience isnt super clean, but it is easy to read them.

I used and saved PDF on my Nook. Even opened emails with PDF if traveling without laptop.

I have downloaded a few pdf files on my Nook and have had very minimal issues. Depending on the book, it may read a little funny but nothing to serious. Good luck with your transition to e-reader!

I wasn't aware that Nooks support pdf files. I guess no need for file conversion with calibre and the likes. Thanks.
