Advice sought for an e reader?

I was recently gifted a used ‘BARNES AND WALLACE NOOK SIMPLE TOUCH GLOW LIGHT- E READER`, however to my dismay, I am unable to download books (free) onto the device: not particularly `Tech Savvy` I would appreciate if anyone more conversant in this field whom could convey a `step-by-step` approach.

Namely-
What software do I need to download? And from which website.
Also, how to download books onto my PC, and thereafter onto the Ereader.
Thank you.

whats with the extremely large text? check with your local library, most have ebook lending services. also if you do a search for legal free ebooks, you will find legit free ebook sites.

Don't need to use a Nook. Books are now easily available on phone and tablet apps, including loaner e-books from regular public libraries.

Also, if you are into classic books, the Gutenberg Project has thousands of beyond copyright and public domain titles that can be downloaded in any number of formats useful in whatever device you have. Haven't got to Moby-Dick yet? http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2701 Or The Canterbury Tales? http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2383 Check it out. Use a separate no charge e-book app if you are downloading them to your phone as epub's.

Not to mention librivox, which has audio books that are public domain in a podcast format. Moby-Dick https://librivox.org/moby-dick-by-herman-melville and Canterbury Tales https://librivox.org/the-canterbury-...ffrey-chaucer/ will play or without a download to your phone, just need to bookmark the site.

FWIW, audio books and podcasts are great as bedtime stories. Use an old phone or your old old dedicated mp3 player.
