Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Archiving

I am sure this has been answered somewhere, so I apologise.  I recently went on line and archived and even deleted a few books but my Nook is still showing them.  How do i hide these?  Thanks!

Re: Archiving

Hold and press on the book cover in the library, and a popup will display, giving you the opportunity to archive anything except the cookbook. 

 

I'm not sure, but I had thought that if you did the work on the website, the changes should propagate to your Nook on you next synch, also.  The device synchs pretty regularly.

Re: Archiving

If they are books that you bought through B&N, open the Library on your NC, and then sync... what you deleted will be removed.

Re: Archiving

She may be talking about the fact that they show on a shelf called "Archived" in "My Shelves".   To the best of my knowledge there is no way to get rid of that shelf or thumbnail.

Here, I unarchive the book, and then when it is back in the Library I sync and it disappears, as long as I've deleted it from the B&N site.

Re: Archiving

I'm having the same problem. I archive a book, but it's still there. I refresh and it's still there! Doesn't even move to 'archive shelf.'

 

turned off and on again and will see if that does it.
