If you want to read Kobo books on a Nook, you will find that some Kobo books can be transferred to Nook but most books cannot. For one reason, the format of Kobo books may be incompatible with Nook. For another reason, Kobo books that you purchased on book’s store are protected by Digital Right Management, which prevents unauthorized copying of eBooks so that the eBooks can only be read on Kobo or the device which supports Adobe Digital Editions. In this case, if you want to transfer the eBooks from Kobo to Nook, you need to install Adobe Digital Editions on your computer. Alternatively, you can try using eBook Converter to convert eBooks from Kobo to normal format and then transfer them to Nook. Below we will show you how to transfer Kobo books to Nook with these two solutions.
