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.

Can't delete an archived book

I archived a book on my Nook Simple Touch. Next time I was on B&N, I deleted it from my library, but it still shows up on my reader as archived. I've tried turning the Nook off/on. I've tried pulling it out of the archive, but it still doesn't delete. I've tried syncing it to see if that would take it off, but nothing works. How do I get the archived book off of my Nook?


Thanks!

Re: Can't delete an archived book

I know this is no consolation to you, but I have just deleted two books off of my nook simple touch in the manner that you describe and it seems to work fine. 

 

1.delete previously archived book online

2.refresh library

3.book doesn't show up in searchs on the nook

 

Does your book show up online as well at this point?
