No. If the book does not have DRM, you may be able to convert it to a file format that you can read on the eInk Kindles. I also understand some have been successful installing the Nook app on the Fire.

People have successfully sideloaded the Nook app onto the Fire, but I think you have to root the Nook to get the Kindle app on it.

No, you don't. You just need a nook to android card to boot to. There are several on the market. Works great. I've had the Kindle app my nook tablet since I got it.

No, you don't need to root the Fire or get an android card to boot to in order to install the Nook app. Just get it with the getjar app.

She was talking about rooting the NOOK to install the kindle app, not the other way around.

Not the FIRE, the NOOK. She said you had to root the NOOK to install the Kindle app. That is incorrect.

Well, technically, booting from alternate boot device is quite similar to rooting, but, being easily reversible, you have a point.

It's not really rooting...it's actually a dual boot. The N2A side runs completely off a memory card in the SD slot. It never touches the Nook OS. So you can choose to boot to nook, or to android...and it doesn't void your warranty like rooting would.

Can I download local library books to the Kindle?

Beth says:
Yes you just have to choose from the ones that are compatible with the Kindle if you have an e-ink type or load the appropriate app if you have the Fire and the book is not available for Kindle.

Does anyone know how to convert / cope with 'standard' kindle books on the 'kindle for pc' app?
Or, how to purchase nook books which have been configured for 'nook for pc' as barnes&noble won't sell to me in the UK?

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 25, 2012 2:55:01 AM PDT
Yes. But if we told you, we'd have to kill you :-)

I suggest you do some googling about Calibre and its plugins.

Thank you, that looks excellent ... will respond further once I've given it a thorough 'doing'.

You'll find quite a lot of mentions of Calibre on these forums too, but not so much about the plugins, because stripping DRM off books (which you have to do to convert the format) breaches copyright.

Managed to get kindle books into the calibre library, but as B&N won't sell me anything without a USA address, I cannot try buying & moving 'nook'ed books.
So thank you for pointing out Calibre, it does the job ...
