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: Free Friday not on shop menu

I've never had it on my shop even on Fridays!  I just go look for it on the B&N Nook blog.  (I also get notice of it on FB.)  I kind of like it that way--something about being a surprise appeals to me.

Someone else posted the title, but one trick that was mentioned in a different thread was to go into the "Shop Home" area, press and hold the "SHOP" icone and word at the top until you see the panels reset - that allowed me to see the Free Friday panel last week.  It came up for me automatically today (it's friday - woohoo!).

Re: Free Friday not on shop menu

It's not showing up for me either.  Not only that, I can't even find this week's title if I browse for the Title or for the Author!

 

Screen 8 in my Shop is "James's Picks" (SciFi), not "Free Friday".

 

I've tried holding down the Shop icon at the top of the screen until the choices reset, and I've also tried re-booting my Nook Color.  Neither changed anything.

 

Can anyone help? 

 

Thanks!

Re: Free Friday not on shop menu

Whilst fiddling with the shop just now, I see that BN is accepting pre-orders for an enhanced Harry Potter book:

 

"harry potter, a history - ehanced with videos and exclusive JK Rowling interview"

 

I suspect that's going to work either only on the NC or only the NC + the android app. 

 

Available july 5 - is this likely to finally drop Angry Birds as the top topic of conversation hereabouts, do people think?
