Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

v1.2 stuck on "loading" looking for reading point

downloaded v1.2 over the air to nook. clicked on reading now and book i was reading opened to first page. i was on screen 3000 before the download.

clicked to go to furthest point read and nook now is stuck on "loading". won't respond to any input or attempts to power off.

at this point the nook is a paperweight and not a book reader.

 

what can i do?

Re: v1.2 stuck on "loading" looking for reading point

update...

i was able to get the nook to re-start with a 20 second push on the power button and used find Chapter function and a bunch of single page forwards to find the right page to start reading again.

but now cannot trust the nook to find the reading point next time.

anyone else having this problem?

Re: v1.2 stuck on "loading" looking for reading point

Updating to 1.2 caused me to loose my furthest read settings also.  While I did not get a freeze, it was necessary to use the chapter function to return to my reading point, once there I have not had any problems.

open the back and take out the battery for 10 sec. and replace.
