Nook Question

I enjoy reading and studying O'Reilly books, and have been contemplating purchasing a Nook and then O'Reilly books to download. I read the hard copies because I highlight and take notes, and also bookmark.

Will the O'Reilly downloadable books support this?

Yes. You get your choice of ePub, PDF or Mobi.

The Nook and the Nook color support ePub and PDF (but not Mobi).

Yes. You can browse the nook from your computer and manually move files to it. Or you can use Calibre to do it. See this tutorial video from YouTube:

Not clear which questions you answered, it sounds like you are saying it supports the downloading.

My MAIN questions is can you highlight and bookmark, and can you save those markings?

Hi Gaspar,

Yes, I believe you should be able to highlight, take notes, and bookmark on the Nook. This functionality is provided by the ereader software, not by our ebooks themselves, so you'll want to confirm that the ereader you're looking at has the features you want.

We make most of our ebooks available in multiple formats, including PDF and ePub, both of which are formats supported by the Nook.

I hope that helps!
