Sending books from Calibre to my nook?

Reading a recent thread (Calibre and Amazon Free WiFi) seems to say that Kindle owners can receive books (periodicals) wirelessly when emailed from Calibre to their "@kindle.com" address (not sure I understand what that is since I have a nook not a kindle)

Am I misinterpreting what this thread says? Is it possible to use Calibre to send an ebook to my (or my wife's) nook wirelessly through B&N?


Calibre and Amazon Free WiFi
There may another way to do this but that's the way I go.

EDIT: There is another (better way) just have Calibre email the periodical to your @kindle.com address (not the yourname@free.kindle.com address). As long as you take receipt via wifi, you shouldn't be charged. I just tired it and no charge appeared. If you accept delivery via 3G Whispernet, you'll have to pay 15 cents per MB.

As far as I know the Nook doesn't support having file emailed to it, but if it did, you could do it using calibre, just like for the Kindle.

What Kovid said.

With a Kindle, I can email any book from my Calibre library to my K3. Takes about 2 seconds to download.
