    Default Re: Two Nooks, Two Accounts?

    How about "Two Nooks and Two Accounts"? At least that is what I am trying to find out... how to set up two separate accounts on one computer. I see threads for multiple nooks with one account (I apologize in advance if I have hijacked this thread), but cannot find anything about multiple accounts. My wife does not want to clutter up her nook when I get my Star Wars/SciFi geek on and I really don't want all the Fabio (did I just "date" myself...getting old, I know) romance books on my nook. We each have a BN account, but whenever we buy a book via our own account the book ends up on both nooks. Do we just have to live with this and learn to organize?

    Thanks for any assistance

    According to what you have described it sounds like you only have one account with B&N which you have both nooks registered to. To accomplish what your want to do you will have to set up another account with B&N then unregister one nook, and register it to the new account. Going forward when ebooks are purchased they will down load to the appropriate nook.

    Yes, that is what I did. We are a 2 nook family. My wife and I have different tastes in reading. So in order to prevent her fluff from polluting my nook, and my junk from cluttering up her nook...

    we created 2 different accounts of course with two different email addresses and registered hers to her B&N account and mine to my B&N account.

    Problem solved.

    I actually like the one account / multiple Nook approach. We each use our own shelves to render the others books hidden from view. I only see her books when I have to shelve them. Her shelf is the very last.
