I don't know how great wifi will be over there so I'm trying to come up with other solutions.
You don't necessarily have to be in the US to buy books from B&N. If you have a working computer with Internet access, get alwaysVPN or Hotspot Shield, get behind them and use any credit card with a US address and then load the purchased book via the USB cable.
To answer you straight, if you have a computer with Internet and the cable, yes, you can.
