Question about the Nook's wifi registration.
I'm living in Japan and I bought a Nook online and had it sent to my sister in the U.S. She's coming to visit next month and will bring it with her. One way to get around the international shipping!
But I've been watching a few Nook videos on YouTube and it seems I need to register the Nook with B&N over WiFi...or do I? I actually don't plan on buying any books from their website, I have some books on my computer as well as public domain classics and the like that I'll sideload rather than download.
Japan has WiFi, of course, but I don't know if registration will be possible from here to the B&N site. Would it be better for my sister to unbox the Nook--which is sitting unopened in her living room--and register it while in the U.S.? Or is it perfectly possible to use the Nook without registering it?
