Hope that helps
Yes. I know. That's the problem. I have to remember to touch it. And I don't. I really liked that the previous version always displayed it so I always saw it when I turned the page.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who likes the STR's stiff page buttons. My wife had a Kindle 3 and every single time I picked it up it would change multiple pages. I've been trained by multiple touchscreen devices to always pick stuff up by the bezel, and even though that Kindle 3 wasn't a touch device I still did that because that's what my brain was trained to do. With the Nook, I can pick it up by the bezel and *not* accidentally change pages because the buttons are stiff enough to resist the light amount of pressure from picking up the device. I have to consciously act to get a page change, which is good.

I'd like to see:
1. a PC/Mac app to create the libraries on the Nook;
2. a sort by last read.

I would like an open app format where I can purchase and read Kindle or kobo books. That's why I ditched my old nook tablet for a Nexus7. I now only have one device and can purchase books from the big 3 sellers (minus apple of course).

I'd like a NOOK ST with a user-replaceable battery. I'm not talking about "gently pry the cover off with a plastic knife"; I'd like a secure release mechanism similar to those found on laptop PC's.

Unfortunately, the trend for most electronic devices is "slimmer is better", and even many laptops no longer come with user-replaceable batteries.

"Form" is trumping "function"!
