I have a couple of the Nook STRs. If you have B&N epubs you can remove the DRM with the proper plug-in for Calibre -you need the one that lets you enter the credit card number you used to buy the book on your nook. You can also sideload any clean epubs without any trouble.

DRM is the biggest obstacle to any consumer wanting to buy books wherever they like and use them on any device they may have -it should be standardized so that any epubs will work on any device, otherwise the FTC should declare it invalid and anti-consumer. Would you buy DVDs that only play on one brand of player? How about CDs, or Blu-ray? The only ones that seem to be getting away with such crap are ebook publishers/sellers.
