Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Who said anything about the Tab 3?  And as far as the Nexus 7, I'd rather have a microSD card slot.

I sure can't. ...


 Nevermind;  it was a one-night infatuation.

Regarding external batteries and 3rd party chargers: The SGT (and Note) prefer a Samsung-aware charger. With a high-output charger, they'll charge the usual 10% per hour, but to get any better, you need one that is specific to Samsung. Fortunately, I've had no trouble finding many that are. I also picked up one of those PWR+ adapters that is supposed to let it charge at full rate with any high output charger, but keep forgetting to test it. I wonder if that would work on the HD/+ as well?


Not sure what you're calling high-output but both the Zagg Sparq Silver and IOGear GP6600 offer 2.1A USB outlets.  The charging LED on the HD+ shows green as if the HD+ were already fully charged when plugged in.  I really don't know why the HD+ is burning so much battery while the display is asleep -- perhaps it's trying to find a non-existent Wifi connection so it can overwrite my Nook apps with the equivalent Google Play apps.

I have the Nexus 7 and although I was surprised I have never felt the need for an SD card.  I have the 32Gb model.
