UPDATE  11/29.....  This was just posted on my FB!

So, B & N brought back the LendMe buttons, which is great, but it threw a wrench into the system we built to work without them. We're aware of the problem and are, once again, working to correct something caused by B & N's apparent inability to decide what they want to do. Hang in there, folks.

I just got my eFling News Letter.....  & This was in the Middle of it:

 

Tell Me More, Tell Me More!

It was love at first sight, and now that Barnes & Noble have acknowledged that the lending issue created by recent changes to their website was unintentional, we've made up from our first fight. The folks at B & N assure us that they're working to correct the error and return lending to its original functionality, so we should be flinging again (like we did last summer) very soon.

Why are we waiting for them? Because we believe in protecting your privacy and not asking you to reveal your email address just to share ebooks. We know the break in lending has been frustrating (oh boy, do we know!), but we'd rather have a temporary pause than plow forward at the cost of violating your trust.

Thanks to all of you who took time to alert Barnes & Noble to the problem as well. We appreciate your support and can't wait to have eBookFling back up at full capacity for you. Readers and eBookFling go together like ramma lamma lamma ka-dingidy ding di dong!

 

Much love,
The eBookFling Team

That is good news!  I've got 13 credits just sitting there.  Maybe by the time they work it all out some more of my books will come up.

Ooh, you better work (around)!

RuPaul2012Work.png

After many weeks of waiting for Barnes & Noble to correct the issues with Nook lending, which they assured us were unintentional and would be fixed soon, we've decided to take matters into our own hands. Our programmers are hard at work now on a system that will go live in early November (exact implementation date TBA) giving Nook users the option to update their eBookFling accounts to reflect the email addresses linked they use for B&N and give us permission to share those addresses with flingers who send books to them or receive books from them.

Protecting your privacy is one of our topmost concerns, so we hoped it wouldn't come to this, but Nook flingers are banging down the door for an option, and we want to deliver. We also want to emphasize that the new system will beopt-in at your discretion, and we plan to revert back to masking all users' email addresses as soon as B&N makes the now-long-awaited corrections.

We're excited to have this work-around on the horizon and will keep you posted as the launch date approaches. A very big thank you to all of you who have hung in there and been so incredibly patient during this frustrating pause in Nook lending. Flingers rock!

 

Much love,
The eBookFling Team  

Dang looks like Nook people Have to wait til NOVEMBER to use eFling.....WOW

You want them to BUY eBooks so they can Post them for 1 person to Borrow......  hummmmm
