I love your B&N bookstore. I am a french travelers and always get one or two books to go home (beautiful one) in Paris. I would like to buy the ebook of the book I am buying...each time. Buying a book and your ebook at the same time can be nice. Via a flash code, ticket-code, whathever. Think of it it it doesn't exist. Thanks,
At the bottom of the B&N Community discussion list is a link to "B&N Blogs" at http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/B-N-Blogs/ct-p/BNBlogs which is of course hopelessly obsolete.
How about either (a) redirecting it to the actual Nook Blog at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nook-blog/ or (b) just removing the link.
Leaving an obsolete link to a dead blog is just sloppy.
The shopping experience for nook books is very tedious with regards to the review system. There are literally hundreds of spam reviews that make the customer rating system highly inaccurate. I have three suggestions:
1. Don't allow for reviews to post right away. Have there be a 24-48 hour delay.
2. Label a review with a "verified purchase" title if the reviewer has purchased the nook book AND allow to sort ratings by verified purchases.
3. Reviews must be approved before being posted.
Reporting the spam reviews doesn't seem to remove them. I open up the shop window on my nook with the intent to make purchases, but I usually don't end up purchasing anything. Many times I simply close the shop window because it's too much of a hassel to try to find legitimate reviews. I realize I have the option of going to a competitor site and read reviews there, but if I have to continuously do that, then the convenient thing for me (or anyone) to do would be to stop making them the middle man and instead purchase from them because I'm already at their site. I would prefer to continue purchasing from Barnes and Noble.
Barnes and Noble staff please take into serious consideration these suggestions. Thank you for your time.
Most alphabetizing by title ignores "a" and "the." B & N's unconventional use of "A" and "The" when alphabetizing titles makes books difficult to find. First I have to look at the overall list, then look at all the titles beginning with "A" and then all the titles beginning with "The." Is there a reason the convention is nor followed? Can we get it changed?
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..
It would be really nice to be able to sort my nook books by genre. I would really like to look at the genre and view my based off of Thriller, Romance, Action, etc.
It would be wonderful if Nook would come out with a way of backing up your shelving system so in the future if you were to have your shelves disappear you could just reload the shelves or if you were to buy a new Nook reader you could just transfer all your work from your older well used Nook to your new Nook. Any chance of this?
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!!
Can we get a proper blocking or muting function for the forums? It would be helpful to the forums overall for users to be able to mute their view of the posts of troublemakers - it decreases the likelihood forum members will respond to flames, and when a troll gets nothing for their trolling, they tend to lose interest in the forum and will go away on their own. Having a solid blocking function will allow these forums to be used as they were meant to be - by folks helping others and getting help from others, as opposed to constant bickering and harassment that's been a feature of these forums for a couple of years now.
I know there is currently a block function, but it appears to only block PMs and does not block the offender's posts from the user's view.
It would be nice to be able to organize the library on each of your devices on your computer (both shelves for all devices, and what profiles items are assigned to on the HD and HD+). A lot of things are easier on the computer with a mouse and keyboard than on a touchscreen device. It would also be much easier to do bulk changes on a computer with checkboxes, etc. Being able to organize your library from B&N's website (or even a Nook application on your computer) could also be used as a way to back up shelves, and easily restore them after a device has been deregistered and registered again.
It would be very helpful if when displaying books on a shelf created for a specific series, an option to display by series order were available. Thanks for considering this suggestion.
Please put the battery dischage level on the Quick Settings window. It's patently dumb to have to go three levels deep in the control structure to get such basic info. The icon on the Status bar just doesn't give the info that the Battery Dischage graph gives.
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.
My suggestion is that there's a faster way to add a single book to a shelf. Add an "add to shelf" button in the information screen when you double tap a book in your library. That way, if you want to add a new book to a shelf, it's fast and easy instead of scrolling through your book list in the shelf edit menu. With it only sorted by title, if you have a book in the later alphabet, adding a book to a shelf is tedius.
So in summary. Double tap a book to bring up the book info screen. Press "Add to Shelf". Pick the shelf. Done.
Also, you could add a "Shelves:" item in the information page to show what shelves a book is already part of.
There doesn't seem to be any way to search "mynook" on the website. Obviously once you have a lot of items, this is a problem. Having to scroll through 100 books to find something is just crazy.
It would also be nice to be able to sort by date purchased. This is needed on the website, apps, and nooks. Currently sort is a little erratic, but it puts anything at the top of the list even if you just opened it to see what it was. This way I could easily find something I bought last week or last month. Or I could do a reverse sort to find things I bought a long time ago.
Page numbers are missing from the ToC on the NST/G in releases 1.2.0 and 1.2.1. Please add them back.
If you log into the iPad app, and sort your books by author, books in a series nicely "stack" in by series.(assuming the metadata was properly entered by the publisher.) And when you "unstack" them, the books appear in series order (1,2,3...) By stacking, am referring to how magazines appear together until you tap on them again.
This feature has been available on the iPad for the better part of a year now. Incorporating this feature into the entire Nook line would be very useful to your users. (And should also eliminate a number of the complaints about shelving --- no ability to back up the shelves, the difficulty in creating the shelves, etc.)
Please consider incorporating this feature.
