Question extremely basic question

maybe so basic i can't find it anywhere.

i have a first-generation nook. there is a kindle book i want to purchase and read on it. i'm looking forward to using calibre to accomplish that.

the destination options for the kindle book are a registered kindle or kindle cloud.

how do i get the kindle ebook onto my computer so i can convert it and pick it up with my nook?

many thanks in advance

You need Kindle4PC (get that at Amazon)

Since you don't have a 'registered' (non-registered ) Kindle, the cloud is your choice. then K4PC can get the book

THEN

you will need to liberate your book (MR rules prohibit instruction on this) so you can read it on your Nook. Apprentice Alf has a blog
