You probably do not have access to THE Android Market to install applications or you would have already seen the icon for it. So here are some alternative markets that you can try to get apps for your device.

http://slideme.org/

http://andappstore.com/

http://getjar.com/

IMHO, one of the best free ebook reader applications for Android is CoolReader 3. You can get the install APK file for CoolReader 3 at SourceForge.

If you went to the Pandigital website and upgraded to the 1/14/2011 android "tablet" firmware, you will have the "SAM" icon for installing apps and you will hae the "B&N" icon for ebooks.
Any ebooks previously downloaded usually gets wiped unless the steps asked for a backup/restore for you. If you purchased books from B&N before you should be able to re-download.

As a long time Microsoft user, repair tech, system admin on all versions of MS OS from MS-Dos 1.0 through Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 as well as a former Windows Mobile user; I too find Android takes a little getting used to. But the good news is, the more I use it the better I like it. It still can't replace a "full" operating system, or a laptop/desktop PC but it's getting closer.

cool

well all of the things you folks have said have worked and I am very grateful for your help....the one t hing I cant figure out is....the one guy said I should have that SAM icon I dont have that I do have the B&N one but I dont have that other one......does this mean IO have done something wrong somewhere along the line? Thanks folks I have been to about 4 different forum places and this one is the friendliest by far!!!

The only thing I can recommend is to try and go through the update process again. I don't know why, because I did not experience it myself, but sometimes the "apps" do not get loaded back after the firmware updates the OS.
Other users have mentioned that just re-flashing through the exact same update processes will correct missing or non-functional applications.

If you do go this route and use the updater on the Pandigital site, just remember to follow the steps all the way through. Sometimes it asks for a reconnect and downloads to the Novel a second time.

Good luck.
