SInce the last 1.5 update every time I finish reading a book, the book stays "open" on that page in my library..for example it will show "On page 274 of 274:. If I try and go back to the cover it will show "On page 1 of 274" this will appear under every book I finish reading. Is there anyway to get them back in the library list without page numbers coming up? Anyone else having this problem?

Everyone has this issue. As of right now, there isn't any way to "close" an ebook completely.

Several of us would like to see the ability to close the book, though. Add your voice to the v1.6 thread.
I don't care if I can mark it "read" with a tag or not. I just want those darned page numbers to quit showing up.

As far as I know, that's always been true. Nook keeps the last place you left off, and the last page is the same as any other page as far as the device is concerned.
The way I and many other people here with a touch of OCD close our books is, when we finish, to tap "Go To", then "Cover", so the book is "put away" at the beginning.

I hope they DO NOT change that 'feature'! It is the only way I can tell if my 83 year old mother has read that particular book on her Nook or better yet has finished it. She forgets sometimes which she has read.
Then I know it is time to find new books for her. She loves to read Amish romances. Don't ask me why. Fortunately there are lots of them.

I also like this feature. The only alternative I can think of is when you turn to the last page in the book the list says "Finished" instead of "page 303 of 303" or something similar.

I've created a shelf called "Done Reading". All my books are on shelves labeled "A", "B", "C", ..."V-Z", etc. So when I finish a book I change the shelf from the letter shelf to "Done Reading". You could name the shelf "Finished", or anything else synonymous. They all have the "page x of x" on those books, but who cares. I don't read them.

Yeah, I created a shelf called "Books I've Read" and once I finish a book I move it there.
I would love a strike thourgh or check mark feature to check off books I've read, but until that happens\, this shelf for finished books is working fine.

I have a few shelves (I think about 5 or so), and I just put it on "READ" shelf, and it goes at the END, so I never have to really look at it. I found that simple.
I like the numbers because it tells me how many pages (approx) is that book and whether I'm in the mood for a long book, short story, or whatever.
