I can get to my Nook page on B&N, I can click on Friends, but when I click on the LendMe tab to borrow some goodies, it does the twirly thing and then times out. I cleared my cache, rebooted, etc but no go on the LendMe. Anyone else?

I just tried it and it was a bit poky to load but it did.  I requested to borrow a book from you and it instantly went to "request sent".

I know sometimes B&N just won't load at all but I just go back an hour or so later and it's working.

And I just sent it to you! Off to try for myself now.

I haven't tried lately but I have noticed that the Nook Friends section of my Nook doesn't always work right.

I read somewhere that B&N is supposed to open a new web site early next year, where people can access books easier for their Nooks. I can't find it right off, but if I run across the article again I'll try to remember to put in a link.

Maybe they're getting ready for a switchover in the background.

Maybe Black Friday crashed their system.  Again.   They often run really slow after a sale price on Nooks.
