I would love to know how you are borrowing books from the library. I can put them on my computer, but my Nook will not recognize any borrowed library books. B&N told me to authorize the Nook. Plug the Nook into the computer and follow the directions he said. Didn't work. No directions too follow. So what am I doing wrong.

Plug NOOK into your computer. Go to "My Computer." Find and delete these two (and only these two) files:
- “.adobe-digital-editions file.
- "Digital Editions"
EJECT NOOK (by right clicking on the icon in "My Computer" and choosing Eject.
Plug NOOK back in
Open ADE and follow the prompts for authorizing ADE in your NOOK.
The following link will be very helpful to you.

OH NO! I just downloaded another book!
Haven't had a problem.
Yes, I did read the manual: well, a good portion of it.
Had a question...
Looked it up...
Found the answer...
OMG, hard to believe.
Get over it.

A kindle is a lot better than a nook. My girlfriend got the kindle and I got a nook. I should not have to wait a week for an ebook. I have never in my life heard so many excuses why this piece of crap doesn't work. I get a nook so I can download books in seconds and read it when ready. I love to read and it is a pain to go to the store and get 5 or 6 books at a time or order online and wait. I thought the nook was an answer to my prayers and now I find I was better off just going to the store. If you can't handle the overload of people ordering online then you need to update your program or get out of the race the kindle is better anyways. The excuse why the kindle is working better is because they didn't sell as many is just that; an excuse to cover your lack of a good program. I have a piece of crap that I need to trash and just order a kindle instead. I will tell anyone that the kindle downloads in seconds no matter if it is a busy time of the year or not. I ordered one book and it has been 3 days and I still have not got it. Your technical person tells me it might be a week or longer due to the overload of callers and orders. Kindle is doing just wonderful and if you are thinking of getting the nook DON'T!!!! Excuses don't fix a problem. I feel sorry for all the people that got the nook for Christmas because it may take them weeks before they can even use it.
Just to put in my 2 cents. I just downloaded a book on my NookColor. It took a big 30 seconds to appear in my library. I also have a Kindle 3 and prefer my nook. I find it easier reading on the nook. I had to go to settings to set up go to last page read, otherwise it takes you to the beginning of the book (on the Kindle). On my Nook classic and Nook Color it automatically takes you to the last page read without having to setup anything. So the Kindle is not perfect. Like I said, just adding my 2 cents. And like others before me have said:
" Happy Nook Year to All!"

Just an after thought tanya, maybe there is something wrong with your credit card and not your nook. Why doesn't anyone else report a 2 week delay to download a book?

You should check your internet connection if it takes a week to download. My nook usually only takes a few minutes per book.
You do realize that the last response before you was TWO YEARS AGO?
Since I first purchased the Nook about 3 years ago for the most part I haven't been able to purchase apps. I did at first but when they didn't work I've gone with only free ones. 80% of them won't install. They sit on my desktop and say download. I click on them the load then say installing and then they go right back to download. I did get Words with Friends to Work until recently. Opens but won't let me sign in. Angry Birds won't install at all. I've gone to the B and N store but they don't know anything. I've called B and N but they only tell me to reset it; which I've done 6 times. I've also written to B and N but nobody seems to care. It usually works for about 2 months and then has to be reset again. Now I have a problem with Gmail not working. Lastly my book reader is also not working as of today. So I can't read book, I can't play Words with Friends, and I can't use Gmail. Other than a paperweight what can I use it for. I would recommend anyone purchasing this item. I don't know if the Kindle or others are better but it's worth the shot.
