A friend of mine want to download my book which I published with amazon and and currently available as an ebook. The problem is that she has nook not kindle. Would she still be able to view the book? Or are the formatting between the two completely different? I don't own a kindle or a nook so I'm not sure? Sorry if this is a silly question.

To insert a product link use the format: [[ASIN:ASIN product-title]] (What's this?)

You may want to ask this question in the Kindle Help forum or in the Meet Our Authors forum.

Both Nook and Kindle use proprietary formatting for content on their e-ink readers, so she couldn't download the kindle book to a standard Nook. BUT if she has a Nook tablet she could side-load the Kindle app for android and read it on the tablet, or smartphone, if she has one.
Or, she could also use the Kindle app for PC and read it on her computer.

Thanks, MM. :)

I was pretty sure there was a way, but I had no idea what it was and wasn't sure if anyone else would reply.

Also, if your book was published without DRM (I believe that self-published authors are given the option to choose upon uploading), your friend can buy it on Amazon and easily (and without breaking any laws) convert it into ePub with for example the free Calibre software.

If you chose DRM protection when uploading/publishing the book, then her options are what Miss Mitford describes above, or, to break the law and remove DRM before converting.

Or she could buy the book on Amazon and you could convert your own master copy of your book (I assume you've kept it) into ePub and send her that copy. :-)

Please publish your books withour DRM. That way people with any reader can buy your book from any store. Why limit your audience to only people with kindles?

I very much agree with GreyDay. I understand that authors are concerned about privacy, and some seem to sincerely believe that DRM helps to protect them against that, but removing DRM is so very trivial and a matter of seconds at the most that it's not exactly a deterrent.

All it does is inconvenience non-pirates - people who just want to buy books and read them on their own devices, including whatever their next device is, should the current one fail or some other e-reader offer better options.
