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.

Re: 1.4 update

No you aren't the only one....At first I wasn't that impressed with it, but the more I mess around with it the more I like it. Actually I have been spending all my time on the stock side instead of the android side via the N2A card.

Re: 1.4 update

Personally, I think it's great.  But, from the little I have read in the comments, it seems like to me the primary complaint is that the main menu can no longer be brought up by tapping the bottom of the screen (you now need to hit the "n" key).  I agree with that, but overall  like the upgrade.

Re: 1.4 update has bugs

The update is ok, however I am experiencing some issues with it:

 

- the nook seems more stubborn to scroll between home pages, and takes several swipes or a hit of the N to get it to go to the proper screen

- I cant update my reading status any longer on facebook, which sucks because I am part of a book club there.

 

So far that is all that I have found.  The lendme app seems to be working better, but Id rather have the top two then the lend me app not glitchy.

Re: 1.4 update

Is there some reason that the update isn't rolling out any more? I am hesitant to "sideload" it as that is a word I learned Monday. Wondering if it's coming, or if there is a holdup related to the reported bugginess? Thanks.

Re: 1.4 update

Hi Springhen,

 

The update is still being rolled out. For whatever reason, your device may have skipped the initial period but should happen at anypoint. However, if you don't want to wait then by all means sideload the update. No need to be hesitant, its safe and secure.
