Charging Recommendations
Your NOOK contains a rechargeable battery. To maximise battery life:
•
Avoid fully discharging the battery. Charge your NOOK after several hours of use or when you see the low
charge alert, rather than continuing to use it until it turns itself off.
•
Avoid high temperatures for charging, use, and storage. For more information, see “Temperature Ranges.”
•
Charge the battery half way before storing your NOOK for a week or more.
Safety and Care
This section explains important information about safety and about caring for your NOOK.

surchauffe, de fonte ou de brûlure, gardez l’appareil et tous ses accessoires à l’abri de l’eau et
de tout autre liquide.
Electricity
Your NOOK is an electrical device. Follow the same basic safety procedures you would follow with any electrical
device.
When charging your NOOK, use only the custom components included with or sold for your NOOK: either a
custom USB cable or a custom USB cable along with a power adapter.
Aeroplanes

NOOK. Settings such as intensive care units might forbid the use of any electronic device, with or without
networking.

NOOK GlowLight User Guide
Caring for Your NOOK
To take the best possible care of your NOOK, please follow the recommendations below.
Temperature Ranges
Your NOOK should function as designed in these temperature ranges:
•
Operation: 0° C to 35° C
•
Storage: -25° C to 60° C
Outside these ranges, your NOOK might develop power, display, and/or software issues. If temperatures are
extremely cold or hot, permanent physical damage can result. Such damage is not covered by the limited warranty.
Storage applies to temporary locations like the boot of your car (or other motor vehicle) as well as long-term
storage.
Even on a day that is not very hot, the passenger compartment or boot of a car can be extremely hot. Do not leave
your NOOK in a car.
High storage temperatures reduce battery life. For more information, see “Charging Recommendations”.
Caring for the Touchscreen
You should clean the touchscreen on your NOOK from time to time. Clean the screen with a damp soft cloth,
such as a micro-fiber cloth. Micro-fibre cloths are available from NOOK resellers and from partner retailers. Do
not use any chemicals to clean the screen.
NOOK and Designer Covers
You can purchase an optional NOOK or designer cover for your NOOK at your local NOOK reseller and online
at NOOK.co.uk. The cover helps protect your NOOK from daily wear and tear. It keeps dust from accumulating on
the screen, reducing the need to clean it. The cover also provides some protection against spills.
Limited Warranty Coverage
Your NOOK is backed by a one-year manufacturer’s limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
For a copy of this limited warranty, see “One Year Limited Warranty”. The limited warranty is also available at:
www.NOOK.co.uk/support
In the event of any changes to the limited warranty, the version in effect on the Web site as of the date of purchase
shall apply.
NOTE: To ensure the highest quality of reading, your NOOK has an anti-glare film already installed. Please do
not use any additional screen protector as it will damage the device. To protect your NOOK’s screen
from accidental damage, we recommend using a NOOK cover.Your limited warranty does not cover
damage to your NOOK’s screen resulting from use of an additional screen protector.
NOOK GlowLight User Guide
17
Locking and Unlocking Your NOOK
When your NOOK has been idle, your NOOK goes to “sleep.” Your NOOK displays a screensaver on the screen.
It also locks the screen so that accidental touches do not perform actions.
To wake up your NOOK, do this:
1. Press the NOOK button (the raised NOOK symbol on the lower front panel of your NOOK).
2. Unlock your NOOK. Swipe your finger across the rightward pointing arrows between the closed lock symbol
and the unclosed lock symbol on the screen.
Sliding your finger left to right from the closed lock to the open lock unlocks your NOOK.
18
NOOK GlowLight User Guide
Using Gestures to Control Your NOOK
Your NOOK puts great reading material right at your fingertips. To read that material, to share it, to rate it, and so
on, you will use your fingers in different ways.
Your NOOK recognises these different gestures:
•
Tap
•
Double tap
•
Press and hold
•
Swipe
•
Scroll
Tap
A tap on the screen is a quick touch of your fingertip. It is the same gesture you use when you tap a key on a
computer keyboard.
Tapping on a book cover.
Double Tap
Tapping twice quickly on the screen is a useful short-cut for many features.
In the Library or the Shop, double-tapping on the cover of a book or periodical opens a window with details about

Using Your NOOK at Wi-Fi Hotspots
In addition to connecting to your Wi-Fi network in your home or office, you can use your NOOK to connect to
public Wi-Fi hot spots in stores, restaurants, hotels, cafes, airports, and many other locations.
This section summarizes how your NOOK works with various types of Wi-Fi hotspots.
Unsecured Wi-Fi Networks
Your NOOK will detect unsecured Wi-Fi networks close by. An unsecured Wi-Fi network does not require users
to enter a password in order to establish a connection.You can simply select the network and connect to it.
Secured Wi-Fi Networks
Your NOOK will also detect secured Wi-Fi networks. A secured Wi-Fi network requires users to enter a password
before they can connect to the network.
There are several different security protocols available for securing networks.Your NOOK recognises and supports
the most popular Wi-Fi security protocols, including:
•
WEP
•
WPA/WPA2 PSK
•
802.1x Enterprise
To connect to a secured Wi-Fi network, select it from a list of networks and enter its password when prompted.
NOTE: If you do not know the password for the network, ask the network administrator for help.
NOTE: If your NOOK will display dialogue boxes that let you select a network and enter a password.
Proxied Wi-Fi Networks
Proxied Wi-Fi networks typically present a Web page with terms and conditions, a login screen, and possibly a
payment screen, before allowing you to connect to the network.You will encounter this type of network in many
hotels, restaurants, and airports.Your NOOK detects these networks.
When selecting a proxied network as a connection, your NOOK usually opens a dialogue box in which you can
read and accept terms and conditions, perhaps enter payment method information and login credentials, and
connect. However, this behavior may vary from network to network.

Updating the Software on Your NOOK
From time to time Barnes & Noble S.à r.l. will release software updates for your NOOK.Your NOOK will
automatically install these updates.
NOTE: Updating software does not delete any of your books, magazines, or newspapers, nor does it delete
any of the files you have transferred onto your NOOK from your personal computer. The software
update simply installs new NOOK software to give you the latest features available from Barnes &
Noble S.à r.l.Your NOOK remains registered to your NOOK.co.uk account, and all your reading
material remains accessible.
Installing a Software Update over a Wireless Network
When a new software update is available, your NOOK will download it and install it sometime over the course of
a couple of weeks after Barnes & Noble S.à r.l. releases the update, and while your registered NOOK device is idle
and connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot. There is nothing else that you need to do to receive these automatic software
updates.
A small NOOK symbol will appear in the far left corner of the Status Bar when a new software release is available.
Tap on the NOOK symbol to learn details about the release.
Software installations take only a few minutes. Updating your software does not affect the contents of your Library.
Once the software installation is complete, you can continue reading or shopping or doing whatever else you were
doing before the new software was installed.
Discovering the Version Number of Your NOOK Software
To discover which software release your NOOK is running, do this:
1. Tap gear icon in the Status Bar to open the Quick Settings window.

Sideloading a Software Update on Your NOOK
When a new software update becomes available, you have the option of downloading it from NOOK.co.uk to your
computer at any time and copying it to your NOOK GlowLight using the microUSB cable for your NOOK.
To sideload a software update from your personal computer to your NOOK, do this:
1. On your personal computer, download the software update file from the NOOK.co.uk Web site, and save the
file to your computer.
Do not modify or change the downloaded file’s name in any way. Do not open the *.ZIP file.

Tips and Troubleshooting
Solving Problems
My NOOK is sluggish or unresponsive.
Like any computer or electronic equipment, your NOOK periodical needs to be completely powered-off (not just
put in sleep mode) to allow it to reset.
To power off your NOOK, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. At that point, the device should
be turned-off. Wait a few seconds, and then press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds to turn your
NOOK back on.
My NOOK is having trouble connecting to the Wi-Fi network.
Open the Quick Settings window and turn Wi-Fi networking off. Wait several seconds and turn it back on. Turning
networking off and on fixes most network connectivity problems.
I want to change my NOOK.co.uk account password.What should I do?
Before you change your password on NOOK.co.uk, first deregister your NOOK, so your NOOK is not configured
to use a password that you have made obsolete.
NOTE: You must be connected to a Wi-Fi network to de-register your NOOK.
NOTE: De-registering your device will delete any content you have side-loaded on your NOOK.You might
want to make sure you have copies of this content on your personal computer.You do not need
to back up the books, magazines, and newspapers you have purchased through the NOOK Shop.
These items will be restored to your NOOK automatically when you re-register it, using your new
password.
Deregistering Your NOOK
To deregister your NOOK, do this:
1. Tap gear icon in the Status Bar to open the Quick Settings window.
2. Tap the All Settings button.
3. Tap Device Info.
4. Tap the Erase & Deregister Device menu choice.
5. On the Erase & Deregister Device screen, tap the Erase & Deregister Device button.
A dialogue box appears, asking you to confirm that you want to reset your NOOK.
6. Tap the Reset NOOK button.
Your NOOK deregisters itself, restoring factory default settings.
Changing Your Password
Once you have deregistered your NOOK, log in to NOOK.co.uk and change your password.
NOOK GlowLight User Guide
95
Reregistering Your NOOK
Once you have changed your password on NOOK.co.uk, register your NOOK, following the registration
instructions you followed when you first set up your NOOK. See “Registering Your NOOK” at the beginning of this
guide.
When you need to enter your NOOK account login information, be sure to enter your new password.
The screen is acting as though I’m tapping on it, even though I am not.
If your screen is dirty, it might detect touches when none are occurring. This problem can occur on any
touchscreen device. Turn off your NOOK, and wipe the screen clean with a soft, dry cloth. Pay particular attention
to clear out or gently blow out any dust or dirt from the small lip around the edges of the display. Then turn your
NOOK back on.
I’m trying to lend a book through Facebook, but the Post button doesn’t seem to be working.
Make sure you include a comment with your posting about lending the book. Posting a LendMe offer through
Facebook requires at least a brief comment.
I transferred a ZIP archive from my personal computer.Why can’t I access the files?
Unzip files on your personal computer before transferring them to your NOOK.Your NOOK can read EPUB files
and PDFs, but not .zip files.

NOOK GlowLight User Guide
Appendix A: Page Numbering and File Formats
When you read a book or periodical on your NOOK, you are reading the same words that appear in the paper
edition of the book or periodical. In most books, the page number that appears at the bottom of the screen is the
page number you would see if you were reading the printed version of the same book.
Because printed pages can be larger than the screen of your NOOK, and because many printed books use type
that is smaller than would be pleasant to read on an eReader, your NOOK may enlarge the type on a page and
spread a physical page of text across two or more digital pages.
Because digital pages might be smaller than the physical pages of a book, you might turn the page a few times on
your NOOK and still see the same physical page number in the upper right hand corner. For example, you might
find three screenfuls of text in your book all labelled page 47.
The relation between digital pages and physical pages can vary, because your NOOK gives you a great deal of
freedom in choosing the size of fonts, the amount of spacing between lines, and other factors that affect how text
flows onto a page.
In most books, you will always know which physical page you are on from the number in the upper right. So if you
are discussing a book in a book club, everyone can refer to page 295 and be talking about the same page, even if
you have configured your NOOK to use small type and single-spacing and everyone else in the group is using large
type and double-spacing.
Page Numbering and File Formats
There are several different formats for eBooks, and these different formats treat page numbers differently. NOOK
Books are published in the EPUB format, but you can load other types of documents, such as PDFs, onto your
NOOK.
Here is a quick summary of what you need to know about file formats and page numbering:
•
eBooks and Periodicals in EPUB format
EPUB is the standard format for books in the NOOK Shop. The EPUB format numbers all pages in a book
sequentially, based on some prior account of page numbering, such as the page numbering used in the print
edition. If the print edition of the book had 525 pages, so will the eBook. But the pages are re-flowed in the
eBook edition to make them easier to view on a screen. As a result, a page from the print edition might be
larger or smaller than a page in the eBook. In many cases, a page from the print edition will span two or more
pages on an eReader, as described above.
•
Reflowable eBooks in PDF Format
In reflowable eBooks formatted in PDF, page numbering is for the entire book and reflects some prior account
of page numbering, before formatting for the eBook text size. The behavior is the same as for eBooks in EPUB
format, which is described above.
•
Non-reflowable eBooks in PDF format
Page numbering is for the entire book, and reflects the number of scanned pages. Page numbers also might be
on the scanned pages, but there is no necessary relationship. Page 6 in the eBook might have the scanned page
number iv, and page 30 in the eBook might have the scanned page number 5.
