How to Convert Nook E-books to Kindle

You can easily convert a DRM-free Nook e-pub file to a MOBI document to read on a Kindle using Calibre software. The program is free and easy to use. For publication, upload the e-pub file directly to Kindle Digital Publishing service. Amazon’s KDP program will automatically convert the e-pub to MOBI for the Kindle store distribution; however, to edit the file, use the free e-book editing program Sigil.
