Oranization and purchasing

I have love being able to get my books on any device and read them. The two issues i have with nook currently are:
1) I would love to be able to organize my books. I see that it will place some books of a given series in a grouping and then have a few of the books float on their own, not recognizing that they are apart of that series as well. I wish I could just click and drag and create my own groupings with titles. Maybe having a search feature that could pull up by name and be able to just click and open would be nice as well.
2) I would love to be able to have the power to purchase within the nook app itself. Not a separate app but all in one. Maybe having it customized to show a given genre with suggestions related to recent purchases or update on a new book to preorder for a series already in my nook. That would be nice. A wish list is a must with the feature. Oh a great idea! Being able to send and share the wish list with friends and family for gift ideas,either in email, fb, or printed form.
If these suggestion where to be added I would be a most satisfied customer. Thank you if you took the time to read my suggestions.

Nook/Barnes & Noble stealing magazine subscriptions back!

I've purchased over 450 books on my nook, I read a hell of a lot. But what I buy is mine. I would assume I own my purchases. I always enjoy looking back at old issues of National Geographic. I have paper issues as old as me, 64 years. B & N try to limit my library of Nat Geo to 12 issues. Anything older is moved off my nook to archives. Anytime I open my Nat Geo I have to re-download issues going back to 2011. If I need more room on my nook I will choose what I will archive. I've cancelled all but 2 subscriptions because of this issue. If I buy it & load it to my device don't let me catch you sneaking into my home and stealing what I've paid for! This is why I no longer use the nook device. I'd rather buy direct from iTunes and hope they can keep B & N from stealing my material. Thanks, Apple, for building an ap for the nook that's better to use than the Nook itself! Thomas Wasyluka

Really good app

I love my nook! I love this app that allows me to read on the fly with my phone. BUT. It would be nice if you could just do a search for the books you have downloaded and not have to go through your whole library (currently about 1000 books)! Please this would be nice to sort the books just by the ones you downloaded to that device. And like another reviewer commented that with this being a booksellers app you would think this feature would be a no brainer! Also like another reviewer commented that BN likes to archive books and magazines without you knowing. Would be nice if they left that up to US to determine when I want to archive.
