How to Convert Nook Books to Kindle Fire/Paperwhite?

You can convert Nook books to Kindle friendly format by using third-party software or install Nook app on your Kindle device.

You must say that the Nook app is not available in the Amazon app store. But you can still get it after a few tricks. In this post, we will describe these two ways in detail and then you can choose whichever way to read Nook books on Kindle Fire or Kindle Paperwhite.
