Ran into the issue again of the pages not turning in the correct order or the page number not advancing. Was reading Terry Goodkind's new novel, The First Confessor, and it behaved wonderfully all the way up to the end. Right around page 1125 it started acting up. I would change the page and the page number would not change. I am aware of possible work arounds with changing the font and such. My issue is that this has been a problem from the beginning and it still exists 7-8 months later. My question is this:
Is this an eBook problem or a reader application problem or both?
If it is a reader problem then why does it still exist when it was reporting when the NT was released. I am not sure about the NC having the issue.
If it is an eBook problem then I guess we notify the publisher or author in the case of my book above. How do I know which one it is?
I will keep the sarcasm to a minimum in saying that I really don't expect B&N to read this or respond to it. Anyone else with thoughts that would be helpful?

Yah, I get the same problem here. It's pretty annoying. Usually, I go to the popup menu on the bottom and tell it to go to the next page manually. After that is usually works again.

I am having this issue on my nook color, I know your thread is for the tablet but hopefully the solution will work for both. It started happening after the last patch, I'm running on version 1.4.3. I saw somewhere that putting publisher defaults fixed the problem, so I switched to that and it still happens.
It happened to my on the first 7 books of the Wilbur Smith Courtney Series, and again on Clive Cussler's The Chase.

From what I am hearing people say it sounds like it is definitely a reader software issue. The sad thing is that this issue has existed and was reported when the NT came out and I am pretty sure that those with the NC reported the issue before then. Unfortunately I think that for those of us with the problem we are probably stuck with it. I can only say that I am extremely disappointed in B&N. To succeed in this market they need to compete; no updates, no real fixes, and mediocre app selection just isn't going to cut it. Everyone else is passing them by and I seriously doubt anything they come out with this year will garner more than a yawn from most people.

I understand that for some this is an easy fix. I will admit that I am not ready to throw out my NT either. However, I doubt it will be fixed in the next update because there has been at least 2 updates since this issue was first reported on the NT. I honestly don't think they know how to fix it. I think, IMO, that they hope to release a new tablet this Fall and that the issue will go away. Let me say that I work as a computer programmer and I know of the complexities regarding software design. I also know that other businesses that let things go on like this without communication eventually fail.
I will keep reading on my Nook Tablet just because it is what I have. I will only buy more books if I can be sure to have access to those books if I move from the Nook Tablet, which I will eventually do if fixes are not made.
