How do you take something OFF your Nook? Obviously, if I subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, once I've read that day's paper, I don't want to keep it stored on my Nook. Or do things like newspapers roll off after a fixed amount of time?

Newspapers, I believe you have to Archive them, then do a check for new material/books to have it refresh and make it not appear on the nook. For sideloaded stuff, you have to hook it up to the PC and remove it with and Explorer window (no idea what to do if your on a mac).

Newspapers and periodicals retain a certain number of copies and then they "go away". For newspapers, it's the last 10 days worth of issues, for magazines, it depends on whether it's a weekly or monthly.
If you archive an issue of a magazine, it will stay in your archive forever, which is probably not what you're looking for.
The 1.2 update changed the way newspapers appeared in your library so that they don't take up so much screen space - under 1.1.1 all 10 issues of the newspaper would be listed which, depending on how you sorted your books, could end up taking up the entire first page of the screen (which can be annoying). In 1.2, it only shows you the most recent issue, but then gives you a menu option to view older issues. If you click on this, you get the other 9 issues that have been stored on your device.

I had the same issue and it was driving me nuts! To permanently delete books or magazines from your nook home page (I haven't tried it with periodicals), hold your finger on the icon for a few seconds. A white dialogue box appears with various options. One of them is "remove from home." That should permanently delete the unwanted book or magazine from your home page. It worked for me, though I'm not sure what will happen once I turn off the nook and turn it back on. Good luck.

That's only removes it from the home page. I want to PERMANENTLY remove them from my Library. Both on my Nook color and on the Web page.
This is so easy to do for books, why is it different or impossible for Magazies ?

I am having a similar problem with library books. Once I am done reading them they continue to stay in my digital editions and I can't figure out how to delete them.

You have to use ADE to return and delete a library book.
Hook up your nook, start ADE, browse to your Nook, find the book, hit the ">" next to the name, choose "Delete" and it will ask if you want to "Return and Delete".
ADE will take the book off and let Overdrive know that you gave up the license (so another patron can check it out).
You have to do this so that Overdrive get's updated (the Nook won't talk to Overdrive).
Of course, these are all instructions for the e-ink nooks since that's the board you are posting in. There may be different ones for COLOR.
