I noticed after upgrading that any book I open, whether from B&N or elsewhere, epub or PDF, once I open it, it now shows up along the bottom bookshelf on the main desktop and you can drag it up up with your other books and apps onto the desktop. No more having to go to your personal shelves to dig it out again each time. I don't remember being able to do that before.
Another thing I just found out (not new) is if you touch and hold on a book on your desktop you get the option to make it go away. It's still in your inventory if you look at all of your books, but its no longer taking up space on the desktop.

It is new to 1.2 the ability to save your side loaded content on the home screen. It's nice to see that B&N listened to their community, for me it was one of the most annoying things about the old version.
