Shelf Management

Status: New Idea

I have multiple Nooks.  I tend to buy all the books in a series.   I buy lots of books.   Organizing things to be able to find what I want quickly is a pain..Especially when I have to go add a book to a shelf on multiple devices.  I have already seen the idea of allowing shelf management on a PC.   I will go a step matter where I make a shelf, make it propagate to every device and my online library.   Even better...when I buy a book in a series, automatically put that book in a shelf with the series name on it (create the shelf if it doesn't exist) and save me the trouble of trying to figure it out.   Also, allow specification of order in the shelf so the books show up in the proper order rather than alphabetically...and even automate this if possible.   Try to get the method of adding a book to a shelf on NookHD+ to work on Nook Simple Touch.   Why should I have to go through every page to try to select what books go on what SimpleTouch has over 70 pages to go through and that is painful.    Allow automatic shelf filters to allow making some types of shelves easier (think iTunes automatic playlists) so I can create a self-managing shelf on date of publication, author, series, rating, recently purchased, recently read, and so forth.   Even better, allow tags to be put on books and allow self-managing shelf based on tag.

I agree with Robbed. This would be a really good because adding many books to shelves can  be frustrating and time consuming. Shelves should sync across devices.

Users should have the option to sync across devices, don't assume everyone wants the same books on all devices.

Been beating this drum for years now.  Shelves is terribly written and hard to work with.  I have 96 pages of books.  I have no idea which ones are on shelves.  The only time I get a book onto a shelf now is if I remember to immediately add it to a shelf when I get another book.  Sometimes I'm too busy, then it's gone.  I can't see which books are unshelved (which I could with my original Nook), and I can't search for authors or titles from within shelving.  It is unmangeable and horribly designed.  Please fix it.

I love the idea of shelves but it seems to stop short of being really handy. Setting up the order. automatically would be great but even manually would be better than not at all.  Also showing the books already on a shelf would be great even better be able to filter out books that are shelved. I agree the option to sync, I would like to pick the devices. 


Great job on the Nook HD+ love it.
