UK buyer question
If I buy a Wifi only nook I understand I cannot buy books on the Barnes Noble website in the UK.
Can I buy legal ebooks from any other sites?
Can I manually upload EPUB files from public domain websites?
If so, do I simply connect it to the USB on my PC and drag and drop the files?

I registered online for a nook account whilst in NY.
I entered two addresses, one a NY address of a friend and the other my UK home address.
I also registered my normal UK credit card.
I can buy books fine from BN store directly on the nook or on the web.
Not sure how much of the above was necessary but it works!
The shop assistant in the BN store did tell me that he knew it works for internatonal customers but only if they did the initial registration on the BN website whilst physically on a PC in the USA. I have not had to test registering in the UK though

I believe you can register the nook as well buy ebooks from B&N while in another country as long as you use a VPN (like HotSpot Shield, for instance).
As long as B&N detect your IP address as American, it's fine.

as for registering the nook, they don't care where you are. (i used an Australian IP address)
for downloading the books they again don't care where you are (see above)
for buying books, okay this part you need a US IP address and a US billing address.
Both easy to do, B&N do not check the billing address to see if it's correct. So give them any address in the US, they are not going to send anything to it. And as @afa said .. for the fake IP address just use Hotspot Shield (free, but has ads) or alwaysVPN (paid for service) both of these work.
