Nook File Formats

dummies.com/consumer-electronics NOOK File Formats: EPUB and PDF By Corey Sandler

The NOOK Color and the NOOK Simple Touch work with files created using one of two eBook formats: EPUB or PDF.

The EPUB format is free and open, meaning that anyone can produce and distribute a file using this standard.

An EPUB file is reflowable, meaning that the text can be fine-tuned to the demands of nearly any electronic reader or to the personal preferences of any human reader: typefaces can be changed, their size adjusted, and other attributes modified.

Unprotected EPUBs are commonly used for distribution of books that are no longer under copyright.

Protected EPUBs include Digital Rights Management, encoding intended to limit the use of the file to a single purchaser, an individual machine, or to set a time limit.
