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.

Enhanced features of ebook purchases not working

Hopefully you can share some light on my issue. :smileyhappy:


I purchased from B&N the enhanced version of "Jacqueline Kennedy, Historic Conversations..." which includes video and audio with 324 pages (not overly large).  Neither the videos nor the audio will play...just lock up and I eventually get an error that states "Activity Reader (in application Reader) is not responding" and I can either chose "wait", which does nothing, or "force close".


I have tried the suggestions of other community members of a force close & restart, etc. but nothing seems to work.  I also attempted to play them on the Nook for PC program but doesn't play there either.


I'm thinking that my NC just doesn't have the gusto or even the ability to play the enhanced features, which is a bit upsetting since I paid quite a bit more for that version but can only read and not sure why B&N would even sell an enhanced version for the NC if buyer cannot enjoy the full benefits.


Any suggestions or answers you can provide would be appreciated...thank you!

Hi redhdgirl417,


Try going into settings on your NOOK Color and turning page animations on.


Sorry for the inconvenience.


Hope this helps!
