Though Kindle does have a few ebooks Nook does not have, I think you should first try other sources for Nook ebooks such as:

    * Smashwords http://www.smashwords.com/
    * Fictionwise http://www.fictionwise.com/
    * eReader.com http://www.ereader.com/
    * ebookMall http://www.ebookmall.com/nook/

A list of free ebook sources is at

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized. ~ Daniel Burnbam, Architect for Plan of Chicago, 1909

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
