How to Convert Kindle Books to NOOK Free?
The Amazon Kindle e-reader can read documents formatted in Kindle's proprietary formats AZW or AZW1, TXT, MOBI or PRC. The Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader can also read e-books formatted in TXT. In addition, it can read PDF, Word and ePub but can't read AZW, AZW1 or Mobi. You must convert incompatible Kindle e-book formats before you can read them on the Nook. Once the file is converted, you can transfer it to the Nook using Windows Explorer.
But most Kindle AZW books are protected by DRM. DRM prevents you from converting AZW to other formats. So you may need Kindle DRM Removal to remove DRM from Kindle books. Free download it here:
