NOOK updated for Windows 8.1 includes importing SkyDrive files and better search

Coinciding with the release of Windows 8.1, NOOK – which gives you access to 3 million books, magazines, newspapers, and comics – was recently updated with more live tile sizes and improved ways to search and organize content.

The Windows Experience Blog gives a good rundown of the additions, such as being able to sign in using your Microsoft account. You can also now import ePub and PDF files directly from your PC and SkyDrive. And to make the most of your time, type anywhere in the app to search your Library or search within the NOOK Shop to find new books, magazines, newspapers and comics. You can also look up words or phrases in books and word definitions.

Customize your reading experience by choosing fonts, line spacing and themes, or by adding notes and highlighting words. And so you never lose your place, the NOOK app syncs the last page you’ve read across your tablet and PC.

Sample NOOK books for free, or a try out any available newspaper or one of 1,000 magazines for 14 days free.

Get more details on the Nook update on the Windows Experience Blog.
