Sony eReader 505 and Barnes & Noble eBooks?
Can I read Barnes and Noble eBooks on my Sony PRS 505 eReader? I'm thinking of buying the B & N Nook and would like to interchange the books between the two eReaders.
Thanks in advance if you know the answer.

At this point, no. If things go as described and B&N switches to ePub when the Nook releases AND Sony were to update the ADE software on their Readers then it should work if everything I've read is correct.

For the technically adept
Decided to buy it. Apparently Calibre can convert it to Sony format if it is not DRM'd. Unfortunately B&N is selling DRM's ebooks.
In the end, I had to hunt for a DRM remover. Was able to convert and put on my Sony. So yes, it can be done, but it will involve a little work on your part.

In addition, B&N's ebooks are already known to be compatible with the forthcoming Plastic Logic Que and iRex 800 (assuming that the devices actually appear), and Astak supposedly will be offering access on its line of devices. I don't know if Sony will also offer the ADE upgrade, but I do know that they have had calls and e-mails requesting it so I suspect they eventually will, perhaps as soon as with the release of the Sony Daily Edition, which is scheduled for December.
B&N is (the DRM argument aside) making access to its ebooks available to any device maker who wants it.
