Answer

If you have a Barnes and Noble NOOK, NOOK WiFi, NOOKcolor:

You can download: Adobe ePub ebooks

                                    Adobe PDF ebooks

The software you will need is: Adobe Digital Editions (download here) and authorize your computer and device with your Adobe ID. If you do not have an Adobe ID create one here before authorizing your computer and device. Authorizing of Adobe Digital Editions allows you download and read DRM-protected ebooks on multiple computers. Not authorizing allows you to download and read on a single computer only 

You can download: MP3 Audiobooks

The software you will need is: Overdrive Media Console (download here) (Note that first time users will be prompted to complete a one-time securty upgrade for Windows Media Player)

How to download books to your Nook: See How to Download an eBook or How to Download an eAudiobook for detailed instructions on how to download a title to your computer. Once your title appears on your computer, turn on your Nook and hook it up to the computer. Click on the Library View button in the upper left hand corner of Adobe Digital Editions. Click once on the title that you want to transfer and and hold down on the image as you drag it over to the "Nook" listed on the left side of Adobe Digital Editions. Your title is now transfered to your Nook. To find your ebook on a Nook Color, go to "Library" then "My Files" then "Digital Editions". Your title will expire at the end of the loan period and will be automatically deleted from your computer. However, you will need to manually delete your title from your Nook when you are done reading.
