Google - Just rooted my Nook Simple Touch w/ NookManager. How do I install Google Play?

Nook Touch General - xda-developers - forum.xda-developers.com
I'll admit, I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to hacking the Nook Simple Touch. Last time I used it, it automagically updated itself to the 1.2.0 firmware, and had that obnoxious overlay on the screensaver.

I saw NookManager in the Development forum, found the image, dd'd it onto a spare microSD card, and fired up my Nook Simple Touch.

Success! My NST is now rooted!

And there's a software tool that came with NookManager that let me turn that annoying screensaver overlay off!

But I'm having trouble digging up apps. There's the Amazon app store, but a lot of apps that I would are missing, or only have paid versions.

I'm wondering if there's a simple way to get Google Play on there. There's some instructions I found running searches, but they're all applicable to other rooting methods.

Should I just go googling for an apk and try installing it with adb? Or do I have to perform unnatural acts to make it work?

Also, being a n00b, what other apps should I put on my Nook? I just found Aldiko - it seems the NST's built-in epub reader crashes on badly formatted epubs sometimes, so I'm trying other ereaders.
