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.

Library Management

I rarely buy any books but read a lot of documents that are work releated (mostly word documents). It's very easy for me to manage them by using Calibre which helps me organize and convert them as necessary.

 

As you can imagine I have higher churn rate of documents being added and removed as they are work related.

 

My biggest challenge is to manage shelves. I can't manage shelves effectively either using Calibre or without. If I use Calibre, it wipes out my shelves when I add/remove a document to my Nook Color. If I don't use Calibre the management becomes a nightmare and shelve management is manual anyway.

 

It's more a suggestion than a question. Can B&N make Collections (aka Shelf) accessible from library management softwares such as Calibre? Or better yet, can B&N provide library management software?

Re: Library Management

Hi Bhargav,

 

Thanks for the suggestion.

 

The need for better shelf management has been well documented in our forums, and while we still have a lot to improve on, rest assured we are still striving to implement features our users want.

 

I've gone ahead and forwarded your suggestion to our devs for review.

 

Thank you again for the suggestion, I hope to have positive news for you in the near future.

 

- Alex
