Here's something Barnes & Noble needs to fix ASAP: The wishlist I create via their website is not visible through the NOOK. I can create a separate wishlist through the reader, but I can't see the one I created on line. This despite the fact that I can purchase ebooks online and later download them to the NOOK.

Seriously, B&N. Why erect barriers that keep your customers from spending their money? This is counter-productive.

I'd never realized that since I buy from Amazon. You might want to send that to the lriggio email address. That does seem like a dumb missed opportunity that should be easy to correct.

Oh, Gawd, yes. Get around all the USB flakiness. If I thought the Nook programmers could be trusted not to screw it up .... anyone know where they're located? What native language do they speak?

I would like to replace the Webster's New Collegiate with a better dictionary.
Preferably the OED.
I've discovered I read far too many authors who use a lot of words not in Webster's.
Mostly United Kingdom.

My Kindle has the New Oxford American Dictionary as well as the Oxford English Dictionary. In the USA I think it comes with just the American dictionary but you can download the English version and it's free. I read quite a few English novels so I always download it. I've found it to be as good with American vocabulary as well.

[Edit] Sorry. I forgot this was a Nook oriented thread.

To continue with discussion of the dictionary...

When a word is pressed and held, an abbreviated definition appears (above or below the word), as well as a little banner that pops up with icons for further actions. If a definition is longer than the abbreviated meaning, there is a "read more" button to press for the complete dictionary entry.

Unfortunately, the little popup banner often covers the "read more" button, partially or entirely.

Thanks for pointing this out. Unfortunately that short definition is also grayed out. It will be a nice feature when they make it readable.

Press the home button and swipe to awaken- often it goes to the home screen, as if the button registered two clicks.
