thanks, but the only option I see on Amazon is to send it directly to Kindle or the Kindle Cloud... How do I download to the computer?

I googled this a while back and the Plug-In didn't work. I'll just say it's definitely easier to remove DRM from Nook Books than Kindle books. I don't need to do it now since my Nook Color is rooted but for others looking to remove DRM from Kindle ebooks I say good luck.shake head

About anyone on the planet should prefer Amazon's selection.

I own a nook color but read Kindle books on it. But mine is also rooted so I just had to download the Kindle app off the market

It's great that you just discovered this, but this software has been around, and free, for years. Not a deal.

In other news, there's free software that does stuff available for download on the internet.

good info, but this software has been free since a few years. not exactly a deal, but good effort by OP to let people know about it. Calibre not only does kindle to nook conversions, but it can pretty much convert into any format available in market.

I own a Sony because they're better readers than Kindles... I can read Kindle books on tablet, or better yet read it on my Sony using... creative methods...

Calibre is an awesome program. Kind of like iTunes for ebooks but with a swiss army knife for conversions.
