NEW! Stay in Sync Across Multiple Devices

Automatically sync the last page you read on your NOOK or NOOK app with another. For instance, if you stop reading on a certain page on your NOOK, you'll automatically open to the same exact place on your iPad, iPhone or Android-based smartphone using our FREE NOOK apps.

NEW! Stay Organized with "My Shelves"

NEW! Password Protect Your NOOK

Your NOOK can now be secured in two ways to prevent unauthorized use. First – you can set up your NOOK to lock when it goes into sleep mode, then unlock it with a pass code. Second – you can require a password to purchase content, so others using your NOOK cannot buy anything without your permission.
