    New Anomaly Seen

    deesy58

      I am currently reading "King of Thorns" by Mark Lawrence on my NOOK Tablet.  I have seen, and reported on this forum, numerous instances where the e-reader application software "freezes" on a page of the book I am reading, and the only way to recover is to power the unit off and back on.  This time, however, I saw something new that I had never seen before.

       

      On page #158 of the book, every time I tried to turn the page, the same page was presented.  I was totally unable to turn to the next page.  I could go back a page (or even several pages), but I could not see the next page after #158.  The animations of the pages turning seemed to be working normally.  I closed the book, then reopened it to fix the problem.  I hadn't seen this particular anomaly before, and I know that B&N no longer supports this product, but I was curious as to whether or not anybody else has ever seen this.

          Does it feel like the book is "stuck"? If you run across it again, try changing the font, read through a few pages, then you can change the font back. Have seen this happen on the Overdrive app too. It's not just the B&N app.

              I think it might have been you who first advised me to change the font, and that technique works whenever the e-reader seems to "stick" on a page, not going either backwards or forwards.  I didn't try that because I had never before seen an instance where the page appeared to turn, but the same page was then displayed over and over.  I could change the pages backwards, but not forward past page #158.

               

              When my NOOK freezes completely while reading an e-book, it becomes totally unresponsive to the touchscreen and the "n" key, and only a reboot will recover the device.  That's not what happened this time, but I haven't finished the book, yet, either.  In over two years of reading e-books on my NT, I had never seen this particular anomaly before.
