Register Your Device
You have to register your Nook to a Barnes & Noble account before you can use it. This links the Nook to your B&N account so that you can purchase and download books, magazines and newspapers from the Nook Book Store to read them on your Nook.
A Barnes & Noble account is the email address and password you use to sign into your account, and it allows you to purchase and download books to your e-reader, as well as make purchases while on your computer.
If you don’t currently have a Barnes & Noble account set up, you can create one in a few minutes directly from your NOOK during the registration process. During the account creation process, you will set up your email address, default credit card number, valid expiration date for that credit card, and a current U.S. billing address. To register Nook, perform the following steps.
Turn your Nook on. Review the Terms of Service and tap Accept.
Select the Time Zone and tap Next.
- Connect to a Wi-Fi network. To register and purchase books you must be connected to a Wi-Fi network. You can connect to your Wi-Fi network at home. If you visit a Barnes & Noble bookstore, you will automatically connect to their free in-store Wi-Fi network, and also connects to over 24,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots free. If you are in another location that has Wi-Fi access, the Nook lists the networks found. Tap the network you want to connect to. If there is a symbol next to the network name, it is secure and you will need to enter a password to connect to it.
