I just discovered that if you do not own a Nook device it is easy to lose your books. I have the Nook app on my phone and if I log off, it deletes all my books from the device. It does give a warning that your books will be deleted first, but if you need to logoff for some reason they will be deleted. Then if you don't have a current credit card on your account, you can't get your books back.
I have Nook for PC and tried logging off there and you can't access your books without the credit card you used to buy the book if you are logged off. I have used probably three different cards to buy books and don't know what two of them are anymore. Nook books cannot be opened by ADE on your PC either, but I guess that shouldn't be a surprise given the DRM they use. It think it is Adobe, but with a different flavor from most.
