Using the NOOK Friends App
NOOK Friends is, to quote B&N, “the place for people who love to share their love for reading!” Here, you can connect with friends to lend and borrow books, see what your friends have been doing, and other things.
You access the NOOK Friends app by tapping Apps from the Quick Nav Bar. Then tap NOOK Friends. You are already set up with an account. The NOOK Friends screen is divided into Friends’ Activities, NOOK Friends, LendMe, and About Me.
Friends’ Activities displays what your friends have been reading, what they are recommending, how far along they are in a book, etc.
NOOK Friends displays the friends you have, any requests to become a NOOK friend, and requests for NOOK friends you have sent. If you tap one of your friend’s names, you see a screen that show which of their books are available to borrow. Tap Requests when someone requests to be your NOOK friend, which you can accept or decline. Tap Sent to see which NOOK friends requests you have sent.
To send a request to become a NOOK friend, tap the plus button. The Add NOOK Friends screen appears (see Figure 12).
