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.

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.

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Just got my shipping notification - nothing more that a link to Argix Direct indicating that they got the billing information and it will ship via USPS from NJ.

 

Ordered December 18th by my wife

 

Shipping to SE Michigan.  

 

I figure it should be here early next week.  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Guess what, I got my Nook today and I've been on hold for over an hour now with tech support because while trying to download my first book, it locked up and I can't even turn it off now.  I am not a happy camper to say the least.  And since I am seeing so many threads on this board about freezing up etc, it seems this is a known issue.  Why hasn't something been done about this.  I think I wish I had a Kindle.

Still no love for me here in Maryland with an early shipping notice...   Feb. 1 is really and truly not that far away, but it sure feels like it  It'll get here before I know it.  :smileytongue:

There are several work arounds that help with this issue, most people don't have it happen twice.  Did you let it charge fully before you started using it?

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Hmmm...  Looks like many of the people getting their shipping notices recently are those who ordered in mid-Dec, which kinda makes more sense.  What didn't make sense was people who ordered just this month already getting theirs.  Not a complaint--just an observation.

Hubby ordered on 12/21.  Live north of Dallas.  Still waiting ...no word yet.  Maybe that e-mail and shipping notice will show up while I'm snoozing tonight.  I'm glad most people who have received theirs are loving it!  I can hardly wait!!!

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Ordered 12/28 and still no shipping notice.

 

I've resorted to telling myself that if it comes after the next software update rumored to be coming at the end of January, I won't have to deal with any of the freezing, bookmark, sentences cut off, and other problems people who already have their nook are experiencing :smileyhappy:

 

I keep telling myself that, BUT I STILL WANT MY NOOK NOW!!

 

LOL

[ Edited ]

I just checked UPS's tracking page... my Nook left Philadelphia yesterday, and was scheduled for delivery on Monday. However, it was "scanned for departure" from San Jose, California at 8 pm this evening (Thursday). There's no way it would take from Thursday to Monday to get from San Jose to Loomis (a bit over 100 miles) unless they took it by roller skate. I'm hoping for delivery either tomorrow or Saturday...

Hope for tomorrow, they don't deliver on Saturday.  Still waiting for my notice in SoCal...

Well, my Adler cover just arrived.  Still waiting on an update re: my nook.  The last thing UPS says is it shipped from Edison, NJ Tuesday night.  No updates since then.  Ugh. 

 

At least its not the USPS - their tracking is even worse.

 

Can't wait 'til my nook gets here.  Still can't decide on a name, though.  :smileyhappy:


Status updated!  It arrived in town at 1:02 am.  It's almost home!  Now, off to bed.  Night, all!

Just got my shipping notice!!  It's coming via Argix direct in NJ.  I live in southeastern VA and ordered on 17DEC09.  It should make it to me in time for my next business trip.  Very excited am I, says I.

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

It appears to be going more or less in date ordered order now. Maybe B&N fixed the shipping software. Of course I would have preferred them fixing it AFTER I received my nook ahead of everyone else.

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Well after a UPS mix up (loaded on the wrong truck) the nook arrived during my daughter's birthday party last night. I waited to open it and let it get to room temp. As soon as I plugged it in it registered no problems. Took the nook tour  ( that I already had online, but it's not the same as reading it on your nook.) downloaded all of my book very quickly. Started reading the Dome. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. My only problem the swipe feature. I need to learn how to do that. I read on this board that think of it like an ipod. I have, and it still doesn't work for me. I will not give up, I will keep trying. My husband says why not just use the button, which I could but I want to learn everything about this nook, not skip over what is hard to me. I also am missing some book covers. I will use the search engine (FrogAlum) because I know I saw that before. Hope you all get your notices soon.

I finally graduated, when's the graduation party?

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Ordered on Christmas Eve, Dec 24th and still no shipping notice.  I guess all us Dec 20-31 folks should be getting our shipping notices late this weekend and early next week.

 

Fingers crossed!
