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.

1.4 in December?  GRRRRRRR.

 

(And a very general "in December," at that....which means it could be New Year's Eve.)

Re: Introducing NOOK Tablet!

Thanks for the intro.  Now, just reduce the price of the tablet by $50 because Amazon will easily win this price war.  That's not a product criticism at all - but the masses will favor the Fire on price alone.

Re: Introducing NOOK Tablet!

Glad you went with a separate forum instead of rolling it into the NC forum.  The Nook forum is a mess between N1E owners and N2E owners.  Those devices are not that similar and having them in the same forum makes no sense.  Glad you are not doing that with the NC and the NT

If that's true, then the $199 Nook Color, which unlike the Fire HAS an SD slot, should do quite well.

Yep, and for most people the content purchased for a Kindle will not include sales tax.  That's could be almost a 10% discount right there.

Why the long wait for 1.4 for current owners, when the $199 NC will be available with the update next week? Don't you love us anymore? :smileysad:
