You can use the B&N website to buy ebooks:
- Register your B&N account with an US shipping and billing address. You can use any valid US address, just Google something. The billing address is not checked, so your own non-US credit card will work fine.
- Install a US VPN like Hotspot Shield (free) or alwaysVPN ($8.50).
Before buying books first start the VPN to get an US IP-address. When the VPN is active buy the books.
There are no restrictions for downloading books (just when buying them). So after buying the books just sync the library of your Nook, and the books will be downloaded using Wifi.
