    ADE
    - Required to download and install books onto your Nook from public libraries and some booksellers other than B&N.
    - Is not compatible with books from B&N.

    Calibre
    - Used to organize collections of books.
    - Convert non-DRM books to another format.
    - Download and install various publications to your Nook.
    Plus other features - see the website.

    You don't have to use Calibre, I use it mainly as a book management tool.

    Yep if needing library books then ADE but I seem to never get around to reading books on a timetable.
    So don't do library books. But Calibre is a serious readers software. That like mentioned Organizes,Tags allows you to add cover art or convert books that may not be compatible with the nook to a nook friendly format.

    Download newspapers,periodicals,etc send your selection of books to your nook.
    Since nook color is lousy at pdf's with no bookmarking I just use calibre to convert them to epub and now have now reading and bookmarking for my converted pdf's. Not recommended tho for magazines or picture intensive books tho with a lot of picture content. But for books works great except a few formatting issues on some.
