Flagging Books that have already been read

Hi-

 

I have an extensive library on my Nook.  Is there a simple way to flag titles already read (such as a check mark by the eBook title), in My Documents, etc.?  This would make it easier to pick new selections to read.

Right now there isn't a way. It's something many folks would like to see in a software update.

 

In the meantime, for B & N books, you can always archive the books. For those in your My Documents folder that you have side-loaded, if you use Calibre you can add a 'Read' tag.

Thank you.  I'll give Calibre a try.

How would one go about making that tag? 

 

Or do you mean to just edit the metadata to say it's read?
