Trouble using "Read in Store"

So my NOOK connects to B&N wifi no problem. It's recognized as B&N hotspot, all web browsing and B&N store works just fine. So I select a book and click "Read in Store", but I get the following error:


Unexpected Error

Try reconnecting to the server.


Any advice?

Re: Trouble using "Read in Store"

I run into the same problem at my local store occassionally.  The problem lies not with your nook but with B&N's network system.  Give it a few minutes and try again, if it continually fails let store manangement know about it.

Re: Trouble using "Read in Store"

 The only thing i have to add is that it seems to generate this error if you do not have a credit card registered to your account yet.  When I first got my Nook, I didn't have a card registered on the account yet and that kept me from reading in the store.  Apparently it still uses the DRM for the "read in store" stuff.

This would have never occurred to me, but it makes sense.
