I absolutely love this app it is a must have. I'm an avid reader I love my books and I love just how easy convenient this app is and if you have it on multiple devices in your reading the same book it will sync up the pages so don't have to search define where you left off at. In the books downloaded very fast.

I think your app now sucks. I have had Nook for many years and after your last update December 2021 I have totally lost my library over 400 cookbooks and miscellaneous books you figure the dollar amount on that I have lost or got stolen by Nook no matter what I do I can't seem to get it back I hate upgrades it seems like they just threw out anything and hope it works this time it didn't it's a total mess do not recommend Nook anymore

Don't do it take it from me been a Nook customer since 2009 had four nook books okay. Nook recently did an upgrade lost all of my books 46 or more and sorry I can not name them some were brought and on my shelves. Can not believe these people on phone 4 times 1 supervisor who claims she saw my books what they send back 24 books I downloaded that were free and samples. WHERE ARE ALL MY BOOKS I AM NOW GOING TO KINDLE BOOKS MAYBE THEY APPRECIATE THEIR CUSTOMERS. WHERE IS MY $/BOOKS!!!
