Can books be shared between Nook & Kindle?

Only if you can install a reader app for the other ebook format. It could only be done with a Fire and Nook tablet.

The competitor's reading app can only easily be installed directly on the Fire. The Nook Tablet or Color requires either rooting or running an alternative operating system from a dual-boot sd card. It can be loaded directly onto their tablets, but the process is fairly complicated.

Not legally, no. Illegally, yes.

ETA: To clarify, this answer was only replying about e-ink kindles.

CBP, that's not true at all. You can install a Nook app on a Kindle Fire, register it to your Barnes & Noble account and read Nook books perfectly legally.

I should have clarified, A Dietz - I was referring to e-ink kindles, not the Fire. C.S.Jones had already mentioned the Fire; I was answering for e-inks.
