Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

December Free eBook: Instructions for American Servicemen in France During World War II

Hi!  I don't normally follow this board, but I thought some of you who use NOOKs or other e-readers might be interested in the following.


This month's free eBook from the University of Chicago Press is Instructions for American Servicemen in France during World War II.  From the publisher's website:


"This book was issued to soldiers just before they embarked for France to help them understand both why they were going and what they'd find when they got there.  After lying unseen in Army archives for decades, this singular guide is now a facsimile edition that reproduces the full text and illustrations of the original along with a new introduction by Rick Atkinson setting the book in context.  A souvenir for the 70th anniversary of the war."


To get your free eBook, go to and follow the instructions.


Happy reading!
