You could put them up on Smashwords and let them take care of the details of making your books available for Nook and iPad.

Try making one of your books free on Smashwords so Barnes & Noble will also have it free. That way, you may attract some new readers to giving it a chance and hopefully, they'll buy more of your other books.

It's not just B&N and iBooks it'll be on; I'll be able to find it on Kobo --- and - oh, yeah - Smashwords! my favourite Linux-compatible bookstore!

Just make sure to read and follow the Smashwords style guide - it will make your conversion life easier.

Smashwords is your friend.
It's easy to format your book, it's free, and the exposure is great.

Another vote for Smashwords. While they may leave something to be desired in formatting for each eReader, they can't be beaten in terms of distribution. You can get your work into Apple's ibookstore, Kobo, B&N, Scrollmotion and more to follow.

Yeah, the style guide was really helpful even if you don't use smashwords. Although you should.
Download the pdf.

I vote for Smashwords too. It works really well. Don't expect instant sales, but if you're patient and work hard, you'll succeed.

I've used http://www.jutoh.com/ before to convert to different formats and it works well. It's fairly easy to use and learn too.

I use Smashwords, but you'll get quicker reporting from B&N by going direct through PubIt!

Kindle is 98% of my sales, but others report stronger sales for the Nook, so YMMV.
