UPDATE -- issue is fixed. Apparently the app decided it could only download on WiFi even though I selected cellular on settings. I loved this app -- but it stopped working. I bought a new ebook on the B&N website last night. Although it's listed in my digital library, it never showed up in the app. I made the mistake of following the troubleshooting advice and signed out of the app and then back in. Now all of my ebooks are missing!

All books are audible now at 25.00 dollars each book. Apart from the price there are a lot of people who prefer to actually read a book. I've had nook for over 20 years now and it is getting worse not better. For those of us who are low income, the price for an audible book puts it out reach. I can afford 7.99 but not 25.00 dollars for the same book in audible format. I'm highly disappointed with barnes and nobles.

Was really hoping that the big fixes meant I could sideload my library into my new Android phone, but I'm still experiencing issues. The app starts loading my books but then stops, and then ends up going back to zero. Anyone else having this issue? I've logged out and back on several times, but still no luck. I have loved my Nook app until the most recent updates. Now I struggle to use it and can only open a non-Nook book by opening the file directly from my folder. Please, please fix this!
