successfully installed Google Play Books

We all know that Nook Glowlight 3 is android 4.4.2 based, and many of us have installed various apps on it.

I was wondering whether it's possible to install Google Play Books. Since I have purchased many books using Play Books, but I don't like to read on phone or tablet. Therefore I have spent some time to figure out how to do it.

The steps are as follows:
1. install TWRP by Ryogo

2. install gapps, I use open gapps arm 4.4 pico version, this version contains Google Play Store

3. Sign in with Google Account, but you need to disable 2 step verification of google account first. You can re-enable it after successful sign in.

4. install Google Play Books, it should be possible to do that through Play Store, but my attempt failed, may be out of memory? Therefore I get the apk from apkmirror


Play Books is fully functional. However, the memory usage is very high and it will become extremely slow after some operations. Don't know whether disable bnreader.apk and partner.apk will help. Perhaps a glowlight 3 dedicated to Play Books is possible.

Anyway, just to show that it's doable.
