Deleted/Archived books still showing up on Nook

I deleted/archived many books from my library from the computer. 2 of the deleted and one of the archived are still showing up on Nook. I did "check for new BN content". The other books that I deleted/archived are not showing up. Hmm. Any thoughts?

Re: Deleted/Archived books still showing up on Nook

Reader model? (First Edition, Simple Touch/2nd Edition) firmware revision? (look for "settings) Which is it, archive OR delete? Archive frees up the storage in your reader, but leaves the publication available on B & N's server for YOU to download again FOR FREE (subject to B & N's licensing terms). You have to visit your library with a web browser to delete a book from YOUR library (CAUTION: Once "deleted" you will have to pay again to access that publication again). The titles of archived publications may appear on a reader's list of available publications with a lighter font (full black font for publications that are stored in your reader).

Re: Deleted/Archived books still showing up on Nook

I drove 50 miles to the store to find out how to delete books.I had the same books twice also.The tech finally deleted my password and email address and that removed the books from the Nook.But  to me this is a pain to do this every time I want to delete a book.Is there any other way to do this.

Re: Deleted/Archived books still showing up on Nook

I have the same issue.  I have a Simple Touch.  I borrowed an e-book from my daughter, who also has a Simple Touch.  The lending period has expired and I can no longer open the book, but the icon is still on my screen.  I connected my nook to my computer and tried to figure out which file on the nook contained the icon so I could delete it, but no luck.


Is this a bug?
