Welcome to the forum, and I think you're making a good choice.
I certainly don't claim to know everything about downloading, and I can't buy from B&N because I live in Australia. This is what I do on my computer running Windows 7:
- I probably get more books from the MobileRead library than I buy, and I download them into the Downloads folder
- I buy books from several ebooks stores, and usually downoad them through Adobe Digital Editions which puts them in the My Digital Editions folder. I expect that B&N has its own desktop reader, will make it's own folder on your computer, and will tell you what the folder is called.
- B&N makes it's ebooks for the Nook, which use a different DRM system than anyone else. So you will need to meet my friend Apprentice Alf to help you remove the DRM. I do this routinely for every ebook which has been defiled by DRM before I load it on the my Sony.
- Once the ebook has been cleansed I use calibre to copy it from whatever folder it's in to the calibre library, and from the calibre library to the reader.

Up pops d/loads panel, when loaded, rt. click it, select Open Containing Folder, and just Drag'nDrop the highlighted file to Calibre Library area.
Connect T1 up, hit Data Transfer Mode on T1, hit Send to Device, & that's it.
