    Sounds like a good idea illdill, I'm interested. Not quite sure of the extent of the "LeadMe" policy.

    Well, if you have Nook Color, you go to bn.com then go to "My Account" click on "My B&N" Then you invite people to your friend list via e-mail. Once your friends with people on nook color, you can browse their library, and they can browse yours. With Lend me you can request to borrow or lend someone a book for 14 days. If anyone is interested pm me and we can exchange e-mails. You can read more on bn.com

    @illdill

    PM sent.

    Suggestion: I'm thinking we could suggest users place "NC LendMe Participant" in their signature so others can know who on AndroidTablets.net may want to borrow books. And possible place this suggestion in your OP.

    I don't have a Nook but this is a great idea for every one that has one. Hopefully more others think so too

    Here is some more general information on LendMe, it turns out it is very limited...

    How to loan ebooks on the nook with LendMe service | ZDNet

    Otherwise, you have to send an invitation to another NC users e-mail via "My B&N" at bn.com. When the other person accepts the invite, they will be added to your contacts list. Go to your library on the NC, then go to the LendMe application click the bar that says borrow books from friends with the LendMe app.

    You also have to enable the books you will allow others to see.

    rico2001, I sent an invite to the e-mail you provided

    Thanks for the link, good article and explanation. Yes I received the email but I don't see any links on it to accept the invite. The one time per book limitation is a real bummer. I don't understand why B&N would go to the trouble creating a system that has such a limitation.
