How to Change the Battery of a Barnes and Noble Nook eReader

The Barnes and Noble Nook eReader is an electronic device that can store over a thousand books. Nooks are a compact, light-weight way to take your books with you wherever you go. One nice feature of the Nook eReader is the ability to loan books you've purchased and stored on your Nook to other Nook owners, and vice versa. The Nook eReader even offers WI-FI and 3G connectivity [source: Gardner]. Although the Nook's battery can be recharged, it may need to be changed or taken out and then put back in from time to time.
