For several years now, I have refused to buy any books from the Nook store, because they don’t allow you to download a copy of the book file.

Thus, if the store goes under and your device dies, you lose the books you’ve bought.

Paranoia?

Perhaps.

But.

I’ve just had an email from Nook explaining that they’ll no longer be selling digital content in the UK and that “To meet your digital reading needs going forward, NOOK has partnered with award-winning Sainsbury's Entertainment on Demand to ensure that you have continued access to the vast majority of your purchased NOOK Books at no new cost to you. “

So, not *all* of them then….

On the plus side, I’d signed up to the Sainsburys book thing a couple of days before this, (they had the cheapest copy of an ebook I wanted *and* I could buy it with Nectar points) so I know that you *can* get a copy of the file from them, so if they do have the Nook books I already bought, I may be able to get my backup files for them at last.
