    How to Archive

      I want to hide or somehow mark the books I've read and can't find out anything from the manual. Help?

        • Re: How to Archive

          To archive content:
          1 On the Home menu, tap my library.
          2 If you are viewing My Documents, tap View My B&N Library.
          3 Ensure that archived items are not hidden:
          If one of the menus reads Hide archived items, then archived items are already shown.
          If the menu reads Show archived items, then tap Show archived items.
          4 Navigate to the content item you want to archive. If it is grayed out, it is already archived. If it is not grayed out, you can archive it.
          5 Tap Archive.

          Archiving B&N Digital Content
          B&N digital content can be:
          • In your online digital library but not on your nook. The content has been delivered to the online digital library but not downloaded to your nook.

          • In your online digital library and on your nook. The content has been delivered to the online digital library and downloaded automatically or manually to your nook. You can download content to multiple devices that are associated with your Barnes & Noble.com account.
          • Archived. This content was previously both in the online digital library and on your nook, and has now been deleted from your nook (and other devices associated with your account) and is displayed in gray in My B&N Library.
          Free samples and in-store content cannot be archived. Free eBooks can be archived.
          Archiving Content
          The primary use of archiving is to remove eBooks from your nook. They are deleted from your nook but remain in your online digital library. You can also archive issues of periodicals (including those purchased as single issues and by subscription). If you do not archive periodical issues that are delivered by subscription, they are subject to automatic deletion.

          Archiving B&N content does three things:
          • It deletes the content from your nook. An eBook is retained in your online digital library. You still own the content and retain the rights to it. A periodical issue is saved (it will not be automatically deleted in the future) and you retain the rights to the issue. To save a copy of a periodical issue delivered by subscription in your online digital library and on your nook, archive the issue and then download it.
          • It displays the item in gray in My B&N Library, to indicate that it is not on your nook.
          • When other devices associated with your Barnes & Noble.com account synchronize with the online digital library, they also delete the content from the devices.

            I want to hide the books I've read. How do I do that?

            • Re: How to Archive

              On my Nook SimpleTouch, I put the books I have read in archive.  Have the book on the screen.  Touch the middle of the screen. On the bottom tool bar touch "more".  When the title comes up touch "archive".  It was very simple.

                • Re: How to Archive

                  Not that simple. I did just as your described and it opened a screen with details about the book i want to archive. Only choices were "open" or close that window. "Open" goes to the book. Any further condensending instructions?

                      Tap the "Quote" button on the right side of the "Post Message" box so we can see which person's instructions you are repllying to.

                       

                      Someone running a reader app on the same device (Mac, Windows PC, phones, i-pad/i-pod etc) you are using might be able to offer detailed instructions. You would have to indicate which device you are using though. It might even help to indicate which version of the app you are using.

                       

                      One potential problem responding to months old forum threads is that software on eBook readers, reader software on other devices and even on web sites are sometime revised. A procedure provided moths ago isn't always relevent to the current software versions. There might also be differences between the assorted reader models and reader apps on different devices.

                       

                      On the version 2.5.5.9347 Windows PC app, when I click the "+" button next to "Options" I see oportunities to "READ NOW" "LEND ME" "REMOVE LOCAL COPY" "MOVE TO ARCHIVE" and "DETAILS". An "ABOUT EREADER" BUTTON" (to show the version number) appears on the readers tool bar when I click the "account settings" tab in the left column.

                       

                      You may also find an oportunity to archive your eBooks when you view your library with you browser at B&N's web site.

                        Same question, mine does the same thing.  It will not give a "archive" option.

                      • Re: How to Archive

                        After following your instructions and tapping the "more" button, I get the details page, but only the "OPEN" button appears, never the "ARCHIVE" button.  Any other way to archive books?

                         

                        Thanks.

                        • Re: How to Archive

                          Help same question.  When I try to archieve on Nook simple it only will allow me open or close, no archive option.

                          • Re: How to Archive

                            How do you get it back out of archive? I can't figure that out.

                              On this Nook Simple touch, I tried all the "helpful hints" none worked to get my books that I had read off my device.  I finally decided to quit looking for advice and figure it out myself.  So ok, here's what you do...... Plug your simple touch into your computer, when when your computer recognizes it open up "Digital Editions" cut and paste all content to a folder you have created on your computer.  Check the folder "" for any additional books, and cut and paste the same way.  Then sync device again and it will only have what you have chosen from your "Nook for PC" .  Hope this helps, as I could not get any "advice" form B&N about this problem and my nook kept showing all my books (40 + pages of them)
