Granted I may be missing how to do this but I wish I could sideload and read my .pdb format ebooks on my NC. Well, I can sideload, I just can't read them. And/or a nook ereader app for my Palm based phone (Centro). I know, I know - that will never happen. So, I'd be happy with the fulfillment of the first part of my wish.
And, yes, I really wish it would tidy up the house a bit. Really.

I want it to pick the winning powerball numbers.
Other than that, I'll be happy with onboard file management and some bug fixes. Especially the tendancy it has to get confused as to what page of a sideloaded book it's on. C'mon, it's they're just epub files, it can't be that difficult!

Give everyone else false powerball numbers and give me the real ones. Or I'd like to get 4-5 years out of it. If a gizmo lasts that long I'm happy.

I don't have one yet, I want one though. I wish (and maybe it does, and I'm not finding the info anywhere) that there was a way to have some kind of greyscale background for reading. I want the nook color, since it seems like it would be awesome for cookbooks and magazines, but I like the readability of the regular nook. I wish that they would do an update to the regular nook to make the whole thing touch screen. I guess I want too much out of my ereader.

There's night mode for ebooks. Or do you mean you want it to have an e-ink display?

Try one out in the store and have the Nook Expert show you the different text, brightness and background settings. For all of those people out there worried about reading on an LCD screen for extended periods, I have had no issue regarding eye strain. I simply played with settings until I found one that worked best for my eyes! It is great! Plus, it is great for reading in poor lighting or in situations where you cannot control the lighting, even outside in bright sun.

I wish my Nook color would allow me to edit my shop history so that I could have a little more control over what the Shop / picked for you sections will show me. I've seen some pretty irrevelant suggestions made, and its kind of creepy knowing the shop is keeping track of everything i look at/download. It's a bit of a privacy issue with me.
I did e-mail BN about this issue, and they responded saying they appreciated my suggestion. If this is an issue with others, I'd suggest e-mailing BN as well. Power in numbers, right?
Other than that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my Nook. So much.

Netflix is my biggest wish.
Outside of that I wish my Nook Color was a gaming machine that could replace my PSP.

Turn on Bluetooth, and add at least the ability to read OpenDocuments (.odt, .ods, .odp, etc.).

the best ebook reader i've found for epub books sideloaded onto the nook is FBReader -- does multiple formats and can host the books on the sdcard or the internal -- only catch is have to be rooted.
but then again -- a rooted nook color allows to install the Kindle software -- since that's the only way that they will let us read books purchased "elsewhere" --

So what is your one thing you would like but as far as you know the Nookcolor can not do it either with stock Android 2.1 or the upcoming Android 2.2 or rooted?
Quite a few people are running Bluetooth devices from their rooted NCs.
The NC can pretty much do anything a regular tablet can do as long as it doesn't require a camera or GPS. I used to add a microphone to that list but the devs at XDA are doing some pretty amazing things.
