How To Read The News For Free On A Nook

Barnes and Noble offers plenty of newspaper subscriptions for the Nook to fine publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times, but if you are looking for a way to turn your Nook into a news reader for free, here’s how. (If you are a Kindle user, check out our post on “How To Read News For Free On The Kindle.”

Using a free tool called Calibre, you can download news into the app and then convert it for reading on the Nook. Then:

1. Open Calibre and at the top of the application, click on the “Fetch News” icon. This will produce a drop down menu with news in more than thirty different languages.

2. Click on English and there more than three hundred different news organizations offering free news through the feed. We chose the Associated Press. (Once the news is downloaded it will appear in your library.)

3. The content will automatically be in the ePUB format which is readable on a Nook. So all you have to do is add the file to your Nook library.
