Where are Nook ebook files in Windows 10?
#1  Reader16 04-07-2017, 08:34 PM
How can I find the place where my Nook ebooks are stored on my PC that uses Windows 10? I know they are there because the library shows and I can read books when the PC is not connected to the internet.

Thanks for any advice.

What are you using to download them? Nook for PC, Nook Study, the old Win 8 app?

Nook for PC and Nook Study store books in Documents--->My Barnes & Noble eBooks

If it's the abandoned Nook app from the Windows App Store I'm not sure if it stores books the same way or not.

Thank you AnemicOak,

I can't give a succinct answer to your question. My hard drive files and programs were migrated to Windows 10 directly from Windows XP, but not by me. I may still be using Nook for PC?

I do have a documents file "My Barnes & Noble ebooks." It contains only the ebooks I got before B&N decided to hide new acquisitions. However, when I bring up my on-computer Nook library, all my ebooks are available in complete files. I'd like to find those files.

Edited to add: It's also possible that I have the Nook app from the Windows store. If so, where would I look for my book files?

I guess I'm asking for possibilities to check.

You need to use Nook for PC to download the files to your computer. That will store them in the My Barnes & Noble Ebooks folder.

I don't know if the app actually downloads the ebook to your computer for you.

Thanks to both who answered.

I found the files, but now don't know what's next. Entries are numbers, but not ISBN's. I found them at:

C:\Users\"username"\App Data\Local\Packages\BarnesNoble.Nook_ahnzqzva31enc \LocalState

where "username" is the name under which the computer is registered, not the B&N username.

That looks like a path that the Windows Store Nook app would use. I could be remembering wrong, but it was my impression that you could get no usable ePub's with that app. Are you seeing .epub files at that path?

How to move Nook books to Calibre? I Have nook for pc downloaded but cant find the folder with my nook books in it. The other info in this thread did not help. I did find a folder but they are older books not any of my recent books I purchased the past few years so there must be another folder someplace. I see my B&N ebook folder but nothing since 2010 is in there

That isn't correct. I only have the Nook app from the Windows store on my laptop and ePubs come through just fine. The folder is "C:\Users\"username"\App Data\Local\Packages\BarnesNoble.Nook_ahnzqzva31enc \LocalState" as Reader16 mentioned.

When you say 'Nook for PC', where did you get it from? If you downloaded it from the Windows store (if you are running Windows 8 or 10) it stores them in "C:\Users\"username"\App Data\Local\Packages\BarnesNoble.Nook_ahnzqzva31enc \LocalState" as mentioned. If you are using the older Nook for PC downloaded from somewhere else, it stores them elsewhere (I think in My Documents?).

If you can find the folder, but there's no books in it, open the program and make sure you've actually downloaded the book (right click on the book and choose download, I think. I'm not at home and going off of memory). It doesn't download them automatically. It just shows you the covers.

From the windows store and that path shows it does not exist and I downloaded everything
