Rebuild library on PC from device?

I've been using Calibre for a while now (a couple of years, I think), but my PC recently crashed, and I had to rebuild. My whole library is gone.

I haven't sync'ed my Nook since I've reloaded everything; is it possible to download what's on my Nook onto my PC and into my bright, shiny new empty Calibre library? I'm hesitant to just plug my Nook in and hope for the best - I don't want all of my books to disappear off of it.

Thx!

Connect (wait for Library on device status. should not take long )
Switch to Device view:
Select All: Right-click: Copy to Library (this could take some time. While you wait...Think about having a backup plan )
