The Nook app is a way to obtain ebooks from Barnes and Noble. You can access the bookstore's website through the app. It is quite easy to browse for books on this site. You can browse by age levels, subjects, characters, bestselling series, authors, and more.
Some, not all, of the books are 'Read to Me' - giving students the option to listen to the book or read it themselves. A few free books are also available.
Besides the ebooks that are created as apps, this method is my preferred way to obtain ebooks.
