    Nook Ideas & Suggestions

      Looks like Alex has added a separate discussion board for Ideas to improve Nook devices; it's now listed below the Nook Issues Reporting board.

          It's not open yet for new messages.  Hopefully soon.  *stretches fingers in preparation*

            wow..that's a lot of periods. I must have been ticked off. :smileyhappy:

              okay..so I was having a bad day, we're all allowed. :smileyhappy: But..I was not responding randomly. I have been following the thread because I find it fascinating to watch folks bandy around "facts" and argue their points so heatedly, refusing to allow that anyone else could be right. Ever. Sounds like many people I know in person and I enjoy watching them go on too. :smileyhappy:

               

              There were several posts made that were NOT a joke, but derogatory in tone. All too often, what is joked about is actually meant as truth, pretending to be comedy.

               

              So please do not denigrate me for responding much as you all have been doing, by defending myself with the facts regarding my own behavior in this case that I know as truth, as compared to defending "facts" from other sources that may or may not be pulled from thin air to prove a case.

               

              Glad I could inject some light moments into your heated conversation. I had to laugh at myself after I read my post. That's why I made the second post. :smileyhappy: But carry on..I'm still enjoying the thread. :smileyhappy:

               

               

               

               

              • Suggestion: Let me sign up for notification of future book releases in a series or by an author.

                Especially on e-books or Nook.  When reading a book with an unreleased or pending sequel, you will often not know the name of the future book, nor when it will be released.  Would it be possible to allow the reader to request notification when it comes out?  This would be a button right at the end of the book saying "do you want to buy the next book in the series or be notified when it is available?"  Right now, all I can do is maybe remember to look for that series at some time in the future, perhaps look online to see if someone knows when it might come out, etc.  This would make great business case for B&N to virtually guarantee future sales or know what the future demand might be.  It would also be a nice thing for me to know that whenever it comes out I will be notified and can read the next volume.

                    I realize this is a suggestion thread, but thought I'd let you know there is a website that you can use to track your favorite author and series.

                     

                    Go to www.fictfact.com and sign up.

                     

                    It will tell you what books are in a series and what order they should be read in. It will tell you what the next book in the series is and what the scheduled release date is (if known).

                     

                    It will also email you when the next book in a series is announced and when it is released, or when another book by a favorite author is announced or released.

                      They already do this.  I get them fairly often.
