I just got a new nook tablet last week.  When I purchase books from my computer, they do not show up on the tablet, but they do on my nook 1st edeition.  Both devices are registered to my account.  I was told by support last Sunday to deregister and then re-register which I did.  I then had to reinstall everything so it picked up my entire library (with some newly added books).

Bought a couple last night from my computer, same thing - they do not show up!  The tech person I did an online chat with really had no clue.  Has this been an issue with anyone else?  Or did I get one with a glitch - I'm thinking about returning it and asking for a new one.  HELP!

My wi-fi is on all the time.  I like shopping from my computer as it's easier to browse plus I can access the wish list that I have already got at the website(which I can't on the tablet like I could on the nook 1st edition).

I think I'm going to go back to Barnes and Noble and tell them I want a different one.   Thanks!

FYI, because I had to look it up, the WL on the tablet is not connected to the B&N WL at all.

I ended up just adding all my WL books to my tablet list for future use.

I like to browse the site too, but have found its pretty easy to do on the tablet, but it only shows nook books.

Let us know what happens.
