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.

Hubby got a Nook tablet for Christmas

I have a nook color and he has a nook tablet. I purchased a book several months ago that he wants to read, but it is not a lend me. Is there some way that he can get access to the book without buying it, if I already own it? If it were a paper book, I ciuld just hand it to him...

Re: Hubby got a Nook tablet for Christmas

You should be able to download it to your computer using the Nook for PC application.  Then locate the actual file on your computer and sideload it to your husband's NT.  At this point you will need to enter your credit card information to "unlock" the book.  This information needs to be the same as the credit card information you have entered into your B&N account.  This should only have to be done once, as long as he keeps the book on his tablet he will be able to open it at will.


I have never tried this but many others on these boards have said that is how it works.  Good luck!
