    No Nookbook wish list

      I can no longer access my Nookbook wish list. This is the wish list on the B&N website, not the wish list of my N2E. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

          It's a known issue that B&N is working on, at least according to the numerous other threads on this topic.

            There have been numerous discussions all over these boards about this issue during the last few months. If you want too much information about it, here are a few of the most extensive:

             

            1. Website wishlist issues
            2. Wishlist Problems
            3. Saving to ebookwish list is not working?

            (There is a pretty good search function for the boards.)

              Any further indication when this may be fixed?

                Well I  guess that the good news is that I am NOT the only one that is having this issue.

                The bad news is that it has NOT been fixed.

                I really do depend on my wish list when purchasing books and I really think that it is something that B&N should try and fix and failing that should at lease let us know what is going on.

                I did call customer service and got a pat response "it's a known issue and it is being worked on", with that said it has been almost 2 weeks and still no fix in site

                  A big concern of mine is that once the wishlist is restored the old list will be lost and I'll have to start from scratch.

                    I would really like to know what B&N considers the "known issue" to be.  I can access my eBook wishlist on both my N1E and the B&N website, and I can purchase books from my wishlist directly from my N1E, but when I try to purchase them from my wishlist on B&N, it takes me to my non-eBook wishlist.  In addition to not being able to make purchases directly from my wishlist, I also cannot add books to my wishlist using the "add to eBook wishlist" button on an item page; when I try, it tells me it has added the item to my wishlist, but when I go to my wishlist, it's not there.  The only way I can add items to my wishlist is to do use the "add item" button on the wishlist page.

                        Brandie, you're doing a lot better than I am with the wishlist.  I can't access either through the website or through my Nook 1E.  In fact, if I'm looking at a book description on my Nook, I don't even get an option to add it to my wishlist.

                         

                        I got my Nook when the only one offered was the 1E with 3G, about 6 months or so after it came out.  I've been a very vocal advocate of Nook over Kindle.  I've been thinking about getting a Nook Tablet, but with the recent issues (the wishlist problem and the problem with shopping a couple of months ago), I'm seriously considering just waiting for a tablet to come out that's comparably priced that will allow me to download both Nook and Kindle apps.

                        It seems to depend on where you are on B&N that determines what “Nook Wish List” you will be linked to.  About a week or so ago I was trying to add a book to my “Wish list” and the link was not there but there was a link for the “Nook Wish List” quite by accident I did a double click to add the book and was able to see the book that I had just added but not my old list, so for a week or more I have been adding books if I get the “Nook Wish List” as an option and when I want to see what I’ve added I just do the double click thing.  But I’ve noticed that you don’t always get the choice to add to the “Nook Book List” or the “Wish List” it seems that it is an either or situation and don’t get me started on the wish lists that I created because they are now just ghosts that seem to come and go on a whim. 

                         

                        When my “Nook Wish List” first took a powder I did try the links that just looked like symbols and got the message that the list was full.  Today however when I gave it a whorl I did get what looks like my old list back with some of the books that were added when I did the double click thing, but not all of the books.  Oddly or maybe not so odd is that I can still do the double click thing if I have a choice to add to the “Nook Book List” and see the stuff that I added.

                         

                        I do agree with several of the posters, that most users of the site will not come to the board to look for solutions so they are pissed that a function that I’m sure most use is not functioning.  Don’t know what to say to that but I sure hope this gets resolved soon

                            I am still unable to access my nookbook wish list, and I have tried accessing it from different links.  I'm happy for the people who can now access their lists, but apparently the problem is not yet fixed for all of us.  Keeping my fingers crossed......

                                I received a message from B&N informing me that my wish list is gone for good.  I have to start a new wish list.  Really?  I'm not going to bother spending the time compiling a new list through B&N or even keeping a list on my own computer.  I'll just get out a notebook and keep a list with pen and paper.  So much for technology! ::smileylol:

                                    Interesting - I know that only my Wish list and my Nook wish list work but not my other wish lists

                                    Nice they told you but I'm curious; was it your Wish List and or you My Nook wish list that they said was gone or one's that you created?

                                    You do know that the wish list feature is just a database and much as us techie people don't like to admit it some times database do something call truncating and will break. If your wishlist just so happened to be where the break happens then yea, it's gone. This does not mean that the function does not work it actually does but as all things that are created by humans it just not perfect.
