How to Sign Up for a NOOK Account - dummies

By Corey Sandler

You did buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK because of its integration of the NOOK Shop, right? You’re going to want to create a Barnes & Noble account.

If you already have an account, your tablet can retrieve any eBooks and periodicals already in your account from other NOOK devices or from PCs, laptops, or other tablets running a NOOK app.

You can create a B&N account from your personal computer ahead of time. Then all you need is your username and password when you set up your tablet. You can create a B&N account from their website.

  1. If you don’t have a NOOK account, tap No, I Need to Create an Account.

  2. Tap Create an Account.

  3. Fill in the form with your name, email, a password, and other information.

  4. Tap Submit.


In addition to the eReader on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK (and previous NOOK models), Barnes & Noble offers free software that lets you read (and buy) publications on devices including desktop and laptop PCs, Macintoshes, iPads, iPhones, and various Android devices. It’s easy to start reading on one device and finish on another; what you can’t do is have the same book or publication on two devices at the same time.
