Calibre seems to avoid all the problems I've been having -- so long as I use Calibre exclusively to load, and to remove, books -- and also to eject the Nook from the Mac desktop.

Time to contribute to Calibre's author again. Before some jerk company buys and stomps him for making using their hardware too easy.

That's worked for me on Windows 10. I think there's been a few people that have issues, even when using Calibre, but I haven't seen an issue yet.

Yeah, that's always a good idea. Without Calibre I probably wouldn't be reading e-books. Maybe I should donate again as well.

Thanks! Maybe I'll try using Calibre for the operation, since folks seem to have good luck with it. Almost seems like the eject function might be its best thing ...

So far using Calibre, none of my books have disappeared. Doesn’t help with the shelves, however, because only books put on there by B&N stay there. The side loaded books disappear.

I have had 3 Nooks now, originally bought because they were great for downloading Library books. I have lots of B&N books as well so didn't want to switch to Kindle and got the new Glowlight 3 when the terrible script reading offshore 'customer service' people couldn't help me deal with a storage problem on my simple text. Decided it was just worn out. The Glowlight 3 is terrible; I managed to side load from the library then it simply quit doing it. B&N's ever helpful customer service told me to read the manual. I have spent hours fiddling with it -- the only thing that helps is to erase and re-register -- but the idea of having to do that every week or so to download library books when I travel a fair bit is not encouraging.

If I had it to do over, I would get a Kindle. My husband has never had problems with downloading from libraries with his two Kindles. Why do they take a stable product and get rid of it to market something that is so buggy?
