How do I get Nook reader on my Android Tablet (Froyo)

I have a ViewSonic g Tablet.  I have not rooted and still have the awful TapNTap UI on it.

That not withstanding I want to try loading the B&N Nook reader app on it.  The App Market won't let me download it because I don't have an "Android Phone" associated with my account.

Is it possible to hack the apk off some site and install it?  Anybody know if its telephony dependent in its current form?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can side load the app, but I don't know how dependent it is on a telephony connection.
Here is a link with the APK but not sure how it will work on your tablet.
