craytala, as you saw, side-loading books is fairly easy. But to my surprise, I couldn't figure out how to get to the home screen the very first time without registering the Nook Color. You don't have to enter CC info (of course it will ask!), but it will require you to enter your login (email address) and password for a free B&N account.Question: Right out of the box, will I be able to just sideload books (epub & txt] and start reading? or will I have to jump through hoops and enter CC info, initiate a B&N account, etc just to get started.
Oh, another small tip I saw in a video review is that you can select the "My Shelves" button in your library, then "Edit" and you can create your own collection (including books both on the internal NC memory and on your SD card). I assume that the shelf you create is just "shortcuts" so presumably if you remove your SD card, you probably can't access the books from that location any more.Question: Right out of the box, will I be able to just sideload books (epub & txt] and start reading?
Yeah, I remember how nervous I was the first time I rooted my Droid. But having an easy process to get it back to factory condition made it less intimidating.to all of the above, mahalo!!!
btw, after perusing the forum re:rooting...well, for now...i think i'll pass...
