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.

Overview: Is there a way to see it AFTER buying a book?

B&N had an ebook sale after Christmas, and I love to book shop, so I have many books on my Nook.  Having the Nook and the ability to purchases books more cheaply than a hard copy has lead me to branch out from my typical genres.  I've read a few books I never would have picked off the shelf before.

 

I love the Overview feature when you are shopping for a book.  Is there a way to retain this feature, so when I'm looking through my library trying to decide what to read next I can skim the Overview again? 

 

Sorry if this has been posted before.  I've tried keywords, etc, for about an hour but couldn't find this topic. 

 

Thanks:smileyhappy:

Go to my library, scroll to the book you want and then click "view item detials & options".... there you get your overview.

Re: Overview: Is there a way to see it AFTER buying a book?

Thank You!  I love seeing the covers of the books and go to the "show book covers" as soon as I go into my library.  Then I tap the book cover to select a new book to read.  

 

I didn't even think to back up a screen to look for that option.

 

Thank you:smileyhappy:
