On the Library screen, is there any way to adjust the speed of the scrolling up/down? I've tried moderating the gesture using a fingertip, but the screen still moves faster than I'd like. I wish the Nook Color had a small vertical space on the RH side of the screen to allow for scrolling. The way the screen is set up It's hard to do without accidentally calling up a book I don't want to see/read.

I don't think there's any way to adjust the scrolling speed or the screen sensitivity on the NC.
It's interesting to me how different people's experiences are. I see a lot of people here who feel that the NC touchscreen is too sensitive.
I've only had my NC since Thursday night (the 30th), and I find the NC screen to be not sensitive enough. I noticed I have to put more pressure on it for it to react than I do on my Droid X. And my Droid X has a screen protector on it while my NC currently does not. I also feel that it doesn't flick scroll nearly as well and just isn't as accurate. The screen itself doesn't feel as smooth as what I am used to, either; my finger feels like it drags a bit on the screen instead of running over it as easily. When tapping to make selections, I have to touch my selection for about half a second before the screen reacts.
The keyboard is definitely not as responsive, which is the reason so many people have issues with double presses of keys. I can't type fast enough or accurately enough on it because there is no multi-touch keyboard.
I also have trouble with the NC screen reading touches along the right edge at times, which is most apparent when using the keyboard. It seems to be less sensitive along that edge, which I think is probably a hardware issue with how the screen was installed.
Some of these issues are the result of me being used to using a device with a touch screen that is so much more responsive. I know I just have to get used to the differences in these cases. But the keyboard and the issue with the right side of the screen are something else. I find it ridiculous that there is no multi-touch keyboard available for a device of this caliber.
Ugh, sorry for the rant on your thread. I didn't realize these things have been annoying me as much as they so obviously are.

I sometimes have the same problem, opening up items when all I want to do is scroll. I'm trying different touches on the screen, seems like I need to be gentler.

- I guess you tried swiping, but doing it more slowly.
- Maybe try scrolling instead of swiping?
- Swiping is dragging and releasing while still moving.
- To scroll, touch the screen and drag, but don't release until you stop moving your finger.
- Tho this will only let you scroll one screen full at a time....

On the Library page I found an option in the upper RH corner of the screen that helps with this problem. It has several options for displaying how your books appear onscreen, and a couple of these leave sufficient space on the right side for a fingertip scroll up or down.
Sorry I didn't see/try that before I posted, but I do appreciate your replies!
