Your library is where you keep everything you want to read on NOOK. In your library, you will find:
• Books you have purchased from the NOOK Shop
• Newsstand magazines and newspaper you have purchased from the NOOK Shop
• Free books you have downloaded from the NOOK Shop
• EPUB files and PDFs you have transferred onto NOOK using a USB connection from your personal computer (these files appear in the My Files section of the Library).
To access your library, tap the Library button on the NOOK Navigation Menu.
To help you quickly find what you’re looking for, the Library on your NOOK features a couple of pull-down menus that let you select which contents to display and how to display them.
The Category Menu
The category menu (sometimes called the filter menu) is a pull-down menu in the upper left corner of the Library lets you select the Library contents you want to display.
Your choices include:
• All - shows everything in your Library (the number after the word “All” indicates how many items you have in your Library)
• Books - shows only books
• Magazines - shows only magazines (this menu choice appears only if you have purchased magazines)

archived any books or periodicals)

The Sort Menu
The sort menu is a pull-down menu that lets you sort the content shown on the screen according to rules such as Most Recent, Title (an alphabetical listing of titles), or Author (an alphabetical listing of authors’ last names).
The Sync Button
In the upper right corner of the Library is a button with two curved arrows forming a circle. This is the Sync button.
Synchronizing your NOOK downloads any books and periodicals that you have purchased from the NOOK Shop while using another device, such as another NOOK, a smartphone, or a tablet, registered to the same account. Synchronizing also downloads any purchases of NOOK content you may have made on the Web at BN.com.
