I've tried using calibre, but it cuts out or messes with the original text from the pdf. I don't want to just give up and read from my computer, so any ideas? (please posts links if any.)

Why do you need to convert from pdf? I think there are apps like ezpdf to read them on the nook. – Tom Gewecke Feb 2 '14 at 18:56
Are you looking for an OSX or a Windows solution? – patrix Feb 2 '14 at 18:58
The issue is that pdf is designed for the page size the author wants and there is not enough information in the pdf to convert it automatically into a flowing format like epub sothere is probably nothing that much better than calibre unless you program for each pdf – Mark Feb 2 '14 at 21:55

Calibre is without a doubt the best ebook library converter/manager I've ever used. Free and crossplatform for Mac, Linux, and Windows.
