Application starts but stops at the logo screen. It doesn't hang, because you can quit from the Nook for Mac menu.

Fix: Right click-back, right click again-forward. It should load then.

Bugs: Sometimes refuses to quit.

I was having the same problem … but found a fix. when you see the logo screen hold down the 'control' key and click on the screen. You will see a couple of menu choices, select reload. Do this a couple of times and your Nook for the Mac app should reset.

@Phill Thanks for that! It took me ~10 "reloads" before it worked. Strange!

Right click > select Back > right click > select Forward on the application window loads it right away for me. Then use Apple > Force Quit to quit the application.

The best thing about the Nook is that you can use it on just about every device.

The Nook for Mac webpage now (9/26) carries a tiny disclaimer at the bottom that reads "At this time, NOOK for Mac is not compatible with OS X Mountain Lion."

Try downloading Nook Study, it works the same as Nook without the problems.

This failure is not Mountain-Lion-specific. It loaded nondeterministically only about one time out of every four or five times for me even way back on Snow Leopard. Nice to finally find a workaround that actually works.

Also, if you're on a case-sensitive volume, you'll need to add a symlink:

cd /Applications/
ln -s Product.js product.js
