Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

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.

Yes, but "tagging" the sideloaded books as being on some shelf is not the same thing as storing/syncing the sideloaded books in the cloud :smileyhappy:. I don't own a Kindle, but I believe this is a feature they have.

I would love this functionality.  Love.  I just don't have much faith in getting it from B&N.

You know what gives me headaches?

 

I get a headache when I find an acronym floating around that seems to have no antecedent.anywhere to explain what it means.

 

I even googled "Nook STR" as an exact word order phrase and just as plain ol' keywords. Nothing really came up.

 

 it's OK when people use commonly know acronyms like USA and so on. We should know what they stand for.

 

But STR?

 

I need some help with this one.

I can't find a trademark for STR. And quite frankly, I can't find a single instance of B&N using "STR" anywhere in it's literature.

 

Google "NooK STR" as an exact phrase and then "Nook" and "STR" as simple keywords and tell me what you come up with.

 

I think if someone is going to create an acronym (I'm not saying you created "STR," perhaps someone else did) they should at least explain it when used the first time so there is a point of reference somewhere.

 

I wasted time looking for a reference as to the meaning of "STR."

You won't find a trademark or reference to N2E outside this board either

From all that I've seen, the official name of N2E is "NOOK". The phrase "The Simple Touch Reader™" is a trademarked marketing and advertising slogan, not a product name.

 

One clue: a trademarked name must be used (officially) as an adjective to a generic descriptive noun or noun phrase. Hence, "NOOK® brand e-book reader" or the like. "The Simple Touch Reader brand e-book reader" doesn't really work.

Above we have three different appelations for the same entity.

This is probably true.

 

So why would someone create yet another name for it?

 

No comprendo. :smileysad:
