Chapter 5. Manage Your NOOK Library

When you buy books, magazines, newspapers, and apps, they show up on the Daily Shelf, and you can open them from there, or drag them to your Home Screen so they’re always available. But after a while the items vanish off of the Daily Shelf because new items are continually added to it. And you can’t put all of your books and periodicals on the Home Screen, because it will quickly fill up.

That’s where the Library comes in. It’s your central location for all of your books, newspapers, magazines, and more. Get there by tapping the Library icon on the Quick Nav Bar. Here’s what you can access from the Library:

  • All of the books, newspapers, magazines, and other materials you bought from the NOOK Store.
  • Books that you’ve borrowed from NOOK Friends or your local library.
  • Files such music files, Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), PDF files, and books in the EPUB format that you’ve transferred to your NOOK from your PC or Mac.
  • Files such music files, Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), PDF files, and books in the EPUB format that you’ve stored on your SD card, if you’ve installed one.

The Library is divided into several sections (Figure 5-1) to make it easier to find and manage everything:
