Despite Barnes and Noble ebook sales volume has declined over the years, Nook is still the one that offers the less expensive ebook around the market. After purchasing the ebooks from Nook, here comes to the question: how can I download Nook Books to the computer?

Barnes and Noble has discontinued the options to download Nook ebooks to a computer for backup from their website. About one year ago, there were about 3 methods to download Nook books to your computer (on Windows platform): Nook for PC, Nook study and Nook app.

As time goes on, Nook removed the other two downloading options, but left the only way: downloading Nook books via Nook Windows 10 App.
