Sideloaded books and syncing

Looking to buy a Nook Touch. Can anyone tell me if sideloaded (i.e. non-B&N) purchased epub books (without DRM) will sync between the Nook app on an ipad, the Nook Touch, and the Windows PC version of the Nook Reader?

Many thnks,

Richard.

Syncing is only for B&N books (as the information is stored on B&N's servers). I believe the same is true for Kindle (only for Amazon's books).

You are correct Geertm. Only B&N or Amazon store purchases sync up. Anything side-loaded is not.

I have a ton of side-loaded books on my Nook Touch, and its not a huge deal. What I personally hope for is that we can sync our side-loaded materials (books, music, notes, web shares) with the cloud storage offered to the Tablet users.

Just a small thought.

Just FYI - I noticed the other day that my two nooks (tablet and STR) attempted to sync one of my sideloaded books. So maybe B&N is making some changes.

Interesting. Please explain how you saw the "attempt", and did it work?

This may also be a bug - what is happening is my nook is telling me that I've read to a different page number on another device, and it offers to go to that page. However it believes I am always on page 1 on my Nook STR, which is where I'm doing most of my reading.

I've been traveling, and will try to do a more controlled study now that I have both devices with me.

I had that happen with a sideloaded book as well. But when I'd go to the home screen it said I was on page "1 of 1." This is a book with 700 pages. When I'd reopen it, I'd get that "sync to furthest location?" dialogue that would take me from page 1 to wherever I'd been reading it before.

But I did an epub-to-epub conversion in Calibre and it fixed that.

I was wrong about the syncing...

What you just described is the phenomena I am observing. Thanks a bunch for the tip - it never would have occurred to me!

So no syncing of sideloaded books still...
