I have been a Nook owner for years, and recently decided to switch over to Kindle. Can I read nook books on kindle?
Why I want to switch Nook to Kindle?
If you have a Nook account, you may have received the following notification from Nook.
“It is with the greatest regret we inform you that we were made aware on October 10, 2020 that Barnes & Noble had been the victim of a cybersecurity attack, which resulted in unauthorized and unlawful access to certain Barnes & Noble corporate systems.”
Barnes and Noble claims financial information was not stolen, but many Nook users disclosed that they have received notifications from their credit card companies that fraud has occurred. About 10 days after this issue, many Nook customers still cannot get their libraries to sync. Some even cannot login their account because they need to change their passwords at first.
This hack takes us to a new topic - we are not safe with our purchased Nook books, and even our Nook account. How to safeguard our Nook books? Then I choose to decrypt nook books and turn nook books into kindle format.
