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: Does anyone's audio work properly????

I'm curious if only a certain region is having audio problems. 

 

I have never had any of these major problems I am hearing people talk about. 

 

Everything worked perfectly out of the box.  I got mine for Christmas (12/25/2010), but I know it was purchased about 2-3 weeks prior to Christmas and arrived already fully charged and ready to go right out of the box, watch the welcome video and the audio was loud I didn't even have the volume all the way up, connected to my wifi, registered, synced with my existing online account, I bought more books with my gift card and it billed correctly and they download immediately, posted to facebook fast, send a quote via email fine, surf the web fine, view & post to this forum fine, listen to Pandora radio and most songs are loud enough that it is only at 75% volume as I walk around the room, the only thing I've gotten from the updates is new GUI views that I can tell.  I really feel bad for everyone having issues.  I'd just take it back until I got one that worked.

 

I'm so thrilled with my experience that I wish it was everyone's experience.  I surely wouldn't trade it for some of the experiences I've heard about.  Some of these communicated experiences just make me appreciate the wonderful experience I have had.

Maybe they meant the Read To Me kids books (with audio).

Re: Does anyone's audio work properly????

Yes, the two children's books. It was very discouraging to have the NC fail with that pre-loaded content. If even the demo didn't work... Anyway, very happy now that I finally got a working NC. Now I can listen to Pandora while I read.
