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.

Re: NOOK V1.5 Update Is Now Available!

I love the new update, you can now delete books directly from your NOOK while under My Documents.  I had several books that I had 2 copies, so I deleted the extra copy. It will ask you several times if you are sure that you want to permanently delete this item, you say yes and its gone! You can still only Archive the books under My B&N Library.

Re: NOOK V1.5 Update Is Now Available!

Deleting things in My Documents shouldn't be a problem since in most cases users would have an extra copy of the file somewhere besides on the nook, since the nook doesn't create files, only stores them. It would be nice to be able to archive under my docs though, so you wouldn't have to reload a doc onto the nook if you changed your mind

With archiving, B&N has a copy of the book online.  Where would you store an archive copy of a book that you didn't buy from B&N?

 

Oh yeah, THANKS B&N!

V1.5 is much faster.  Shelves are great.  Also, I just opened my book using the Nook app on my iphone.  It has synced to the page last read on my Nook.  Easy peasy.

Re: NOOK V1.5 Update Is Now Available!

Wonderful update!  Thanks B&N.  Now time to figure out exactly how I want the library organized.  Hubby's at work so its play time.

When I get a little money I buy books, if any is left, I buy food and clothes

No doubt it would be great if it worked. 

 

Anyone else getting a download error on a WiFi Nook?

Got an error message several times but just kept hitting 'update B&N library' and after a few tries it worked.   About 98% done now....squee!

Re: NOOK V1.5 Update Is Now Available!

While I have to say that the increased page-turn speed and the bookshelf options are nice, I really am extremely disappointed that the note taking capabilities weren't addressed in this update. There really should be a way, at the very least, to view all one's notes on a single text in a single page, and/or export them to a text file, sync them with the PC software, or something. Lacking this functionality means NOOK is useless for anything other than casual reading. Is it too early to urge this for the next update?

Re: NOOK V1.5 Update Is Now Available!

Also getting an error while on WiFi after "Checking for new content".  Maybe the servers are overloaded?

Re: NOOK V1.5 Update Is Now Available!

Folks:  Please STOP stop posting that you are getting errors!!!

That is not a descriptive problem statement and its clear that the servers are simply over loaded.  Give it some time.  It doesn't help to just say you got an error over and over.

 

If you want it NOW, then SIDELOAD.

 

Watch this video on how to side load.
