Jim Lester posted a response to a similar post yesterday. AIR, you can get
software for your Nook from B&N that works with the Mac.
I have the B&N software on my Mac as I have a standing magazine subscription and have purchased a few books through their store. I like their software and store but they did not have the books I was looking for so I went to Google and downloaded epubs from them. I then had to install the Adobe software. If I manipulate a book (highlight, note) in the B&N Mac software, when I tether the Nook, it uploads the changes, and vice versa.
What I am trying to figure out is if the Adobe software is capable of doing the same thing. I bought the book, I own the rights to that copy much like a paper version, so why can I not manipulate it on my Nook and then have it sync up with the Adobe software on my Mac. Why can I not manipulate the book within the Adobe software on my Mac like I can in the B&N software. This ADE software seems to be nothing but a glorified upload software package.
In a sense, you're right. ADE was designed as an interface between the
user and the publisher or distributor. Its intention was to do the
technical things needed to transfer the material, and implement the digital
rights management of that material in the process.
ADE doesn't make claims about what editing tools it has embedded in it.
However, it does have some disclaimers about what features it supports,
such as a limited set of .pdf tools. You can check this out in the HELP
section (F1 key).
If ADE doesn't have the answer, you could drop back and check out Bluefire
Reader or Overdrive. There are a couple of other packages out there too.
Hope this helps!
