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.

Field Guides for Nook Color

Yesterday's question regarding Audubon, Peterson and Stokes field guides was answered and I followed through and did as suggested....make this a ebook...thank you.

Would it be advantagous to repeat this action daily or several times a day...or will just be an annoyance.

Also looking at the Audubon website, for field guides, you can download onto android with a field guide app.

Will the revision 2.2 add apps to our Nook Color...will it be possible to download from the Audubon to our Nook Color?

Right now nobody knows what apps will be allowed in the B&N market, but the Audubon Guides would certainly qualify, IMO. Personally, I prefer iBird Pro for Android, since unfortunately the Peterson Guide for North America is only available in the iPhone/iPad version.

Re: Field Guides for Nook Color

The best way to get an app into the B&N App Market, when it appears, is to contact the developer and get them interested in putting their app on the NC. I would think things like Field Guides would be prime candidates, both from B&N's and the publishers' perspectives, since they are "enhanced books".


Thanks to Mark_OB1 for pointing out to me that this is the right strategy.
