Sharing quotes, etc. from sideloaded books a no-no?

Proud owner of an NST here.

I love the unit and have sideloaded a few dozen books and am curious about one thing.

I noticed that I can share quotes and notes from my B&N purchased books without issue (using the Nook's "share" button/feature). However, I've also noticed that the "share" button is greyed out whenever I highlight any text on my sideloaded books (all of which are loaded on a microSD card in the /MyFiles/Books folder).

Is the inability to 'share' stuff from sideloaded books merely because they're sideloaded, or is it because they're residing on the microSD card?

You can only share from books you purchase and download from B&N. Even if they were in the internal memory of the device, because they are side loaded, the option of sharing will not be available.

Much obliged for the reply. I had no idea. Unfortunate, but not ruinous. Thanks again for the information.
