    Since 1.4.2 Nook Color won't remember last page read

      As the title says. Since my NC was upgraded to 1.4.2, it always resets the current page to the first one of the book I'm reading every time I turn it off. This happens on every single one of the books I own. I had no issues with it until this upgrade, but now every time I turn it on I find it at the first page of the current book, and have to scroll manually to where I had left off before. I am very upset about this.

          Same issue here and it freezes constantly called Customer Service and their solution was to deresgister and erase then "see if it works."  What???  Why can't it just work. For 250 dollars (bought stupidly in early 2011) it should work.  If the Software is an Upgrade then it should not Douwngrade the device.

          Yep I'm mad.

            If you click on CONTENTS at the beginning of the book there is a tab that will read BOOKMARKS you should be able to find all your bookmarks there. Usually after clicking on one of those bookmarks, the next few times you come back to the story it will give you the option of going to your bookmarked page via a message stating an option of return to the last page read on the other device (the other device actually being your Nook Color). Hope this helps, Happy reading.

                      I don't like to point out mistakes, but entering a bookmark only dog-ears the page for future reflection, your Nookcolor won't ever prompt you to navigate to a bookmark unless you open the table of contents and elect to navigate to this bookmark directly. The message that you are referring to occurs in the instance that you have more than one gadget registered to one BN account. (i.e. a computer, ipad, another nook, smartphone app etc) Sometimes people have more than one device registered to the same account and they want the Nook to remember the page number across the board so that they are not constantly jumping  and rooting through large areas of text to catch up. This would be choosing to go to last page read on other device. Sometimes people do not want multiple devices to remember eachothers' page numbers if there actually is more than one person using the devices. In this instance, you would want to stay where I am. Having more than one gadget will cause this message, not your bookmarks.

                 

                Bookmarks are particularly useful if multiple people are using the same device and reading the same book, but each person will need to open the table of contents and elect to navigate to the bookmark of their choosing. Bookmarks are also a more efficient way of recalling a particular passage without going through the act of highlighting and taking notes. Simply tap the upper right hand corner, and that page is embedded in your e-book's memory bank of bookmarks.

                 

                In any event, the problem that this person is having seems to relate to the actual performance of the Nook itself, not the operation of it. The good news is that you personally won't have to bookmark each page in order for your Nookcolor to remember, it will do so all on it's own.

                 

                It's great that you're helping people on the blogs! I just wanted to clarify this info for you, and others in the future.
