nookbook wish list problem

This is not exactly a problem with my nook, but with adding books to my wish list from the B&N web site.  It says the nookbook has been added, but it has not. If I do the search on my nook and select add to wish list, the book is added.  So I can get the book added, but it's a lot more time consuming to search for a bunch of books on my nook than on the web site.  Anyone else have this problem?

Re: nookbook wish list problem

Yep. Known issue that broke back before the holidays (seems like months now).

 

B&N is "working" on it. Though who knows when a fix will go through.

 

With their web developers tendency to break as much if not more than they fix with any upgrades or changes to the site, I prefer they take their time and get it right.

 

Just means it's harder for me to spend my money, which likely means I will spend less.

Re: nookbook wish list problem

Yes! I thought my computer was being stupid! This is very frustrating because I loathe shopping on the nook, I use my computer to populate my ebook wish list and then buy from it on my nook, phone, and tablet. It's really p!$$ing me off.  :smileymad:

Seems like months because it HAS BEEN months! There's several threads on this, and at least one's from November. And when I first started having this problem, I couldn't find any mention of it yet on the forums, so it's been going on longer than that. I find it incredible that a basic function--especially one that helps drive sales, for pete's sake--has been left to sit broken for so long.

 

Your work-around options are (1) just use the default/physical book wishlist, which DOES still work. Of course this is only helpful if you're doing your book shopping from your computer and just having a reminder list of titles that will take a couple extra clicks to get to an ebook purchase link is good enough for you. Since there's no way to make your ebook wishlist the default (also very very annoying and stupid), in some ways I actually find using the default list in this way to be more convenient.

 

Or (2), use the "Add more items" button on your ebook wishlist page to manually add the books, rather than conveniently adding them while browsing.
