How to Build Shelves on Your Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK

By Corey Sandler

When your Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK arrives, it has basic shelves of this sort: Books, Magazines, Movies & TV, Kids, Catalogs, and Newspapers. Below that, My Shelves is where you can create and fill your own collection in any way you choose. And finally, a section called My Files holds any personal files you have moved over to the Tab S2 NOOK.

Creating a shelf

You can create any shelf you want and call it anything you like. To create a shelf, do this:

  1. From any Home screen, tap the Apps icon and then tap the NOOK Library icon.

  2. Tap More Options, then tap New Shelf.

  3. Use the keyboard to enter a name for the shelf.

  4. Tap Save.

Adding items to a shelf

Now you need to move things to your shelf:

  1. Press and hold on a book or a file in the list of items in your library.

    A menu appears.

  2. Tap the checkbox next to an item to add it to the shelf.

  3. Tap Save.

To add or remove content in a shelf you have previously created, do this:

  1. From any Home screen, tap the Apps icon and then tap the NOOK Library icon.

  2. Swipe down and tap My Shelves.

  3. Tap a particular shelf to open it.

  4. Tap More Options.

  5. Tap Manage Content in Shelf.

  6. Tap to add or remove a checkmark next to an item.

    If it has a checkmark, it’ll appear on the shelf.

  7. Tap Save.

You can

  • Rename a shelf from the More Options section by tapping Rename Shelf and then typing a new name. Finish the process by tapping Rename.

  • Remove a shelf by going to More Options, tapping Remove Shelf, and then confirming your intention by tapping Remove.

When you remove a shelf or remove an item from a shelf, you are not deleting that content from your NOOK device. The book, movie, TV show, comic, or other media remains available in the library.
