How to Access My Nook Account

By Jordan Whitehouse

The Nook is an e-reader developed by Barnes & Noble, a bookstore chain in the United States. The newest incarnation of the Nook has a 3.5-inch color touchscreen and WiFi. It also comes with 2GB of storage, an MP3 player and the ability to share e-books with others who have an e-reader, a smartphone or a computer. The account that allows you to purchase e-books and update your personal information is available on the Barnes & Noble website.
