Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.

App Reviews

  • Love the app but for one thing

    By Twirlingirl
    I love the nook app I can read all my favorite authors when I want where I want as long as I have my phone!!! My only issue is that when I’m trying to group books that apart of the same series once you’ve reached your allotted regrouping number your not allow this bugs me because there are times when I purchase books they don’t always go into the already grouped series group and when you go to group sometimes you get a message that says the Nook team will look into the matter you sent us your concern about the next time the app updates well I don’t like this because there are times when the app doesn’t update so you have about 11 books that belonged grouped together but I have to wait until the new update comes out! But besides this I love this app and enjoy reading all the hundreds of books I have saved onto my account!!!
  • A small quibble

    By annefj
    I’ve owned a Nook Color since they first came out, then continued to read on my iPad when it’s battery stopped taking a charge. I now also own a Nook Paperwhite and the problem I have with the device and the app is font size. On my iPad Pro, I can’t get the font size to increase as much as I need for my poor eyesight and on the Paperwhite, the largest font size is so big it seems only a few words fit on the screen, while the next size down isn’t quite large enough. I didn’t have this problem with my original Nook device and seem to remember being able to increase the font size further on the Nook app before it was last updated. This is why I read ebooks nowadays—because the print size on everything else, from books to magazines, is too small. It would be wonderful if an intermediate font size could be provided for the Paperwhite and the ability to further increase font size in the Nook app.
  • Love my nook

    By Cjmhsssad
    I've had my nook for years. I found taking hard covers places difficult due to size and weight. I don't have a problem with the hyphenation or wrapping of text since I u sweats s that different font sizes will place differently in the viewing page. One suggestion to display by author is a good one since sometimes it alphabetizes by 'The'. For people who can't remember what they've read, they can try archiving books once finished. They are available to unarchive if they want. Keeps the volume down. The fact that I also have the app on my iPhone and tablet allows me to read anywhere. You can also archive a book from your phone or tablet. One suggestion I would offer is Xcode the reader to be able to group 'like' books together while still grouping by author, i.e. Mystery vs Horror vs Self Help vs Health, etc. I would recommend nook for everyone.
  • Love the app but with one caveat

    By Roebling Grid
    I’ve been a Nook customer for about nine years, first with the original Nook reader, then a Nook Simple Touch, and now as an app on my iPhone. I simply love it in all of its forms. The only complaint I have is with the latest update on my iPhone. In previous versions the capability existed to look up a definition for any word you wanted, not just one highlighted from the text you were reading. You simply highlighted a random word and then changed the it in the definition to whatever you wanted. That feature seems to have disappeared. You can still look up a word from the text but you can no longer change it to find the definition of another word. This was one of the features I enjoyed the most and would really like to have returned in a (hopefully quickly developed) future update.
  • Love nook on Samsung device but HATE the apple version

    By Ananna mouse
    I'm sorry and this says more about apple products than anything else. Everything is very user friendly and harmonious with my samsung devices (note I said devices, as in more than one) but anything I try to do with my apple products is apparently protected by the CIA and NASA. At one point I was even questioning my own existence and security trying to log into my own account. Thinking to myself, "It's me right, that's my name and password." Then after a fingerprint, my password, a hair sample and my second born later, I still can't open the book I paid for (over 5 years ago, yes I'm a re-reader) and am trying to retrieve from the archive 30 minutes later. But if I log onto my phone or computer (not apple products) I can do so and then update my apple device to read my book.
  • I like it fine

    By Tinuvieljb
    Overall, I am happy with the app. I don’t have a Nook, and since I cannot buy directly from the Kindle App, I use this one. The prices are fair. I have two complaints. The first is the the formatting is a little wonky at the top of the page. The first line of text is often imposed on top of the header section. It doesn’t make it impossible to read, but it is annoying. The second complaint is that the app doesn’t have an easy way to access bookmarks. I have had times when the app has closed and won’t open immediately to my last bookmark. I have to think back to the last chapter I remember seeing a number or title for and then scroll to find my bookmark. It would be nice if there was a option in the task bar of seeing a list of the bookmarks that had been placed or some quick way of accessing that information.
  • Losing all my books

    By Waldo32
    I am absolutely sick and tired of the Nook app suddenly deciding I am running a little too low on disk space for its own comfort (2.26 GB available) and removing the books from my device and making me download them again. STUPID. No other app does this to me. So, on multiple occasions, I open my Nook app because I’m in the middle of no where (meaning “NO INTERNET ACCESS”) and low & behold ... all my books are gone. My books are the most important item on my iPad ... more than my music, movies, etc. I sure wish Barnes & Noble agreed with me, but obviously not. Nook really, really needs a switch where I can select “NEVER REMOVE A BOOK FROM THIS DEVICE WITHOUT MY EXPLICIT PERMISSION. I AM AN ADULT AND FULLY AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF MY DECISION.” If this is something Apple forced on you, that would be good to know too. Please get this fixed. I’m tired of lugging around a semi-useful paper weight when I’m traveling in remote areas. BTW, it’s also a pain to keep re-downloading my books over and over.
  • Above and Beyond

    By Systox
    I tried this app out of desperation. I have my own ebooks on iPhone X but reader apps are poorly designed and leave tons of unused space around margins. Not so with the book app. It hits the sweet spot for customization and doesn’t make you pay to change font color. You can fully theme your pages to your heart’s content not just preselected colors like in kindle app. And lastly the best part is that I can load my own books into this app to read. I don’t care for kindle or nook shopping service but just because nook supports bringing your own books, I will take a look at their shop and consider purchasing from them in the future. TLDR: leagues above the kindle app and other e-readers. Well done.
  • Got to Love It!

    By cheda12
    I enjoy reading on my nook. It’s made life easy and my books are always on hand. I’m always buying books and rereading those that I really enjoy and also love the fact that I can archive to save storage. I adjust the brightness and the font to what I can read, which you can not do with a hardcover book. I look forward to any and all improvements that are in the future for nook. Something to work on, is I bought a cook book and have to go through everything to get to recipes. Maybe I’m not using the application to the fullest and don’t want to order anymore cook books.🙃 If you have any suggestions, I’m open to them. Thank you for allowing my feed back. Nooks the best!😍 Concetta
  • Nook needs app to purchase

    By Harley Gram
    I loved my Color Nook and when it finally died after several years of using it I was very excited to learn I could have the app on my tablet and still read all of my collection. However, i found out you can't actually do that and it is actually a very troublesome process to get a bit ok. I do not understand why in the world that a person can't order from the app. It is so aggravating to have to log in one place and order then leave that to go download the books and read them somewhere else. I find myself turning to Kindle more and more because it is a one stop shop. If you want to keep your readers then fix this huge problem.
