Techinally you are supposed to stay within Amazons wall garden but yes there are ways around it.
but again the point is with the nook you don't have to worry about it. Especially if some people aren't tech savy. For instance I cannot see for the life of me my father understanding Calibre and there are alot of people like him.
You know, it's good there is a reader for just about everyone and we should celebrate having choice without taking an "us vs. them" (the "my reader is better than yours") stance.
