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.

Re: Cookbook is Baaaaaack

It's not an ad; it's a BOOK.  Maybe it's me, but I can see a difference.


The difference is that a book usually has more than 6 pages and doesn't try to induce you to lay out more money to see how it ends. Another difference is that if you purchase a book you have control over what you can do with it. For instance you can delete or archive a book. Yet one more difference is that a book (unless it's a required textbook) is usually something you *choose* to purchase rather than being *forced* to carry in your library. If you need some clarification as to what the differences are between a book and and ad please send me a PM and I will explain further.

You can archive it and get off most of your views.


Have you tried to go to your B&N account and delete the sample?


B&N needs to keep some type of contact with you every 6 months to comply with your government's laws about contact and business relationships and "do not call". Maybe you should write your U.S. Senator and representative to get another law passed that does not work the way they think it should.

But, you sure have time to beat this dead horse, don't you? ----- to each, their own. Ever try to see BOTH sides of an issue?
