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.

Secure PDF Files on Nook

Secure PDF Files on your Nook! - When I travel every few months for 2 or 3 days to MD Anderson Houston for treatments (I am in remission now!) the B&N Nook is my constant and unassuming companion. Lots to read and review in the airports - and always stuff to read between their famous "take this pill wait an hour and return". I have also found that converting my important phone and contact directories and hotel and taxi contact locations to PDF using the PDF maker password options is very helpful and secure. It keeps me from having to take reams of documentation and notes - and also makes me feel more secure just in case I misplace my nook - which could ever never happen? Lots of PDF makers around - Just google "Make PDF" and see all the inevpensive packages that you can use to convert - and password - all types of documents - and look for their 'secure' password options. Print-Save your document PDF in a folder on your computer - then make a folder in your Nook extra memory and copy to your nook. Turn off the Nook - and turn on again - When you open the PDF file -the Nook will ask for your password! - and bingo - you have everything you need to know in your Nook! without taking another briefcase of documents. I even keep some of my medical information on PDF in case I am asked at reception - which is ALWAYS!  Grandpa Shrek 2010
