In the account section, the order list only shows Order Number and not the title.  So you have to click on every entry to figure out what each is for.  Adding the title to the entry would make this so much more user-friendly.   As someone who works with web design in IT, I am baffled at how this is missing..

I think it would be fantastic if the nook library had a system, like a shelf, with a list of books that you have already read. It gets pretty frustrating for an avid reader, like me, to have to constantly weed out the books I’ve read. A separate tab in my library would be awesome, and if I wanted to re-read any of them- it won’t be a problem because they are all organized!!

I wish Barnes & Noble had something similar to Amazon's BookMatch.  Essentially a service where if you buy the physical book from B&N you can get the Nook Book version for free, 1, 2, or 3 dollars depending on the book.  Basically the book version of digital copy movies.

     These forums are an excellent place to collect good ideas for improving the nook experience and I would like to contribute as well. I have had the 1st generation nook and now the nook simple touch. The e ink readers are by far my favorite method of reading novels old and new. I have some requests I'd like to make of the next e ink reader Barnes and Noble create.

 

     First I would like an e ink reader with a screen bigger then 6 inches. As much as I like being able to slip my nook simple touch into a large coat pocket, I am able to get my 10 inch Samsung galaxy 2 where ever I go with out difficulty. Amazon offers a 10 inch e ink reader but it does not support the formats that nook traditionally supports and I would have to rebuy the library I have already purchased from Barnes and Noble. A 10 inch nook ereader would be a perfect addition to the nook family for those who not only want a larger screen for the fun of having one but also for those whose eye sight has deteriorated with age.

 

     My second request would be at least one set of page turning side buttons. The newest nook addition was created with out them. From what I see on the forums that isn't necessarily a popular decision. The side button's have been useful in my nook simple touch and can be designed without adding a great deal of bulk to the nook.

 

     It may go without saying but the nook product has been able to absorb accidental abuse that other tablets don't survive very well. I certainly hope you continue the trend.

 

     Finally if it can be economically incorporated (I know I am talking to a business here) I would like to see a keyboard attachment of some kind for the e ink readers. There seems to be demand for it, and even the most basic text file can be copied and pasted to word or the more advanced document programs. A key board that works on e ink readers would be a welcome accessory.

 

    Thank you for your time

I have been trying to buy cookbooks on my NOOK to save space in my kitchen.  It would make my life so much easier if there was a way for me to tag recipes that I like in a variety of different books and have a "custom book" be generated that included all the pages I tagged.   That would allow me to have one super cookbook.   I am sure there would be other uses for this feature besides recipes.   This would be a great enhancement for a new Nook or for the application,   I would happily pay for a Nook application that included this feature!

This suggestion applies to both the Nook apps on Android (which I use on my tablet) and the Nook reader devices (I own a Nook Glow light).

 

As someone who purchases books, magazines, newspapers and comics. It is fairly easy to get around with the exception of Comic books which often get lost in my library. A new pulldown tab to view only "Comic books" would be greatly appreciated.

I just scanned tons of reviews complaining of the lack of page-turn buttons on the glow light. Personally, I'm surprised that BN, and that other reader company, haven't been hit with an ADA suit from people without the use of both hands. Most of the complaints were from people without the use of their right hand. Why force the right side of the screen to be 'forward'? My first Palm reader app from many years ago allowed choosing which screen area and button was considered 'forward' and 'backward', - including the top and bottom of the screen. It would also scroll text or turn pages automatically at varying speeds without having to touch anything. Yes, that slowed your reading down a bit, but let you read with dirty or wet or no hands. Surely somebody at BN could match the functionality of something from the 90's. I also add my vote for increased functionality for the shelves, but BN has been ignoring that one ever since I've been a customer, so I'm not holding my breath.

If I am shopping at a Target or Walmart and notice a book that interests me I would like to be able to scan the bar code of the book, and have it automatically open the browser on my phone to the NOOK title of the same name. That way I can easily add it to my wish list or buy a Barnes and Noble book right there in a competitors store!

 

Wouldn't that be awesome?

I have a first generation Nook. I always download my books at time of purchase. I had to unregister and re register my Nook due to an issue. I have over 400 books and am now expected to download each book individually. You can not tell which books have been downloaded and which have not without clicking on the book. There needs to be a. Download all function or some indication that a book needs to be downloaded without clicking on it. If it has been downloaded and you click on it, it opens the book , and moves the book to page 1 of my library, thus you lose your place as to where you were in the download process. If this is not possible , then there should be a way of contacting customer support and customer support can then force a download all. It was extremely aggravating to be on a cruise without internet access and discover books that I wanted to read had not been downloaded due to the unregister/ re register process necessitated by an issue that customer service told me to do. I feel that I have been abandoned when first edition nook owners are told to refer to the website for help when you call in. There has not been a software update in years. We paid $269 for our Nooks and deserve more support than we are getting. Please help us.

I recently upgraded my 1st Gen Nook for a Simple Touch and I'm a bit annoyed!  The Simple Touch does not have an "Unshelved" catagory!  I cannot see what books I have yet to shelve.  It's really annoying. 

 

Also, I would love to have the ability to hide my archived books.  They are archived for a reason. I don't need/want to see them all the time.  I consider the BN website my library, and the Nook my book.  I don't want to carry all my books all the time.  The ability to see all the books is very frustrating and overwhelming.

 

Also, BN, you really need to work on your website.  Books in series aren't always marked as such, I can't easily get to an entire series, and there is no easy way to add to cart or buy from searching.  There is a lot of clicking involved.

 

Overall, I love my SimpleTouch and my Nooks because I dislike backlight when I read.  I want to keep using my Nook, but I can't help but be frustrated by it.  Thanks for reading!

Spritz (http://www.spritzinc.com/) has been in the news lately.  There are others that have similar takes on speed reading.  I would love to see something in the smartphone/tablet/desktop apps like Spritz where you can crank it up to 500 wpm.

Add a search option for recent releases into all searchs with a date range of 2 months or custom up to 12 months.

 

Trying to find recent releases in a genre is stupidly difficult.

Please bring Nook online store to Australia and New Zealand. At present it is very hard for me to be able to buy Nook ebooks online as it checks the ISP domain and block the sale fo the item outside US.
