WHY does the book always have to "load" every time I open it in the app? It just sits there frozen with a timewheel circling and circling before I can turn the page. And you know which feature I love? The ability to follow my favorite authors and get alerts when they release a new book or one of their books goes on sale. But that's not a feature this outdated app offers. This is something the Kindle app offers. I'm trying to stay loyal to BN, but man, yall are making it hard to.

Terrible reading experience. Needs load time for reading pages. I updated and the issues remain. I usually use kindle and have never had any issues. Wanted to reread old books and it's so bad I might end up buying them again on another platform. Have to tap multiple times to change page and it doesn't automatically resize for manga panels. It's so bad I'm definitely not purchasing another book on nook with my own money.

Sorry for any inconvenience. Your feedback is invaluable, and we will be sure to pass it along. Try turning the Wi-Fi off and back on. You can also try reinstalling the app and rebooting your device to see if that improves the performance.

Needs a new update. Recently the app had been having annoying issues. When I leave the app then get back in, it updates to default settings in color & font. It will occasionally pause while I am reading so I have to close it & get back in, but then I have to reset my colors. Other times if it pauses but I don't close it, it takes about 30 seconds to unpause but when I do that I notice that it skips pages & I have to go back to the library then get back into the book.
