Library page count

Hi everyone! I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I have a question about the way my books are now displayed in the library on my Nook. Since the update, the books I have read now show a page count next to the title and author's name

 

ex: Title

      Author's Name, on page ___ of ___

 

It there any way to turn this off? I'm finding it a little annoying, especially with the books that I have now finished that say "page 244 of 244", etc. I've already finished the book. I don't need my Nook to tell me that I'm on the last page of each book I've finished. If it can't be turned off completely, can the books I've read be reset in some way so this goes away?

 

Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately, NO and NO.

 

This was added in v1.5, the page count and while I like the feature, my minorly OCD self is bothered by this.

 

If you click on the finished book and click "Go to Cover" you can "reset" it to 1 of 244, but you can't ever close it.  :smileysad:  It's a method of marking a book "Read", but I miss my pretty screen.

 

Admittedly, this is a minor issue in the grand scheme of things, but...
