Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Purchased apps moved to library after reboot



I did a restore by holding the power and home button because it kept stayed on the n screen.

It restored to v1.0. I downloaded v1.2 and it upgraded it. All the apps were at the bottom of the screen and installed them. 


When I open them it reads "Sorry, cannot open this book." Somehow it is in my library folder. 


How can I reinstall it back into my apps?

Re: Purchased apps moved to library after reboot

go to your account on the website and archive all the apps. redo your restore to 1.0 and upgrade to 1.2 then unarchive the apps and it should all work as expected.


you might be able to do it without the downgrade by archiving on the website and syncing your library too but I haven't tested that.

Re: Purchased apps moved to library after reboot

I had the same problem and I actually had to unregister and reregister the nook to fix the problem..Someone else on board had same issue and that is what customer sevice told them to do..After reregistering it you then have to redownload the apps..
