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.

Is April update for fee or for free

I was watching the HSN sale going on.  They talked about the update being included, and that the update might not be free after the sale was over.  Updates to some apple products have been for-fee before, so its not unheard of.

Re: Is April update for fee or for free

I really debated with myself before I answered you with that "yes." I don't think B&N would have the nerve to charge us--but, then again, who knows.

 

I actually based that answer on the fact that I have a classic Nook and all of the updates were free.

 

Having said all that, I'm running for cover if they do charge.

When I spoke to CS this morning, I was told that it was a FREE update.

Re: Is April update for fee or for free

When the HSN hosts kept saying that HSN customers will get the update for free (without having to stand on line--that part got to me :smileyvery-happy:) over and over and over and over they seemed to imply that everyone else would have to pay for it.

 

Whether any HSN customers inferred that was so is another matter. I certainly knew better.

 

B&N has never charged for software updates for either Nook before and I don't think they will.

 

Did you hear that B&N? :smileymad:

You can not listen to HSN. They are all about selling, period. I'm sure it is free.

You won't ever get charged for software updates. Some apps yes, updates no.

The first commecials show a cookbook with videos and such. Was a short lived complaint topic on these boards.

 

Should be cool when they get it to work :smileyhappy:

If B&N ever wants me to spend any money in the Nook" store they better let me in for free. I don't pay to walk through the doors at a brick and mortar store!

The update will cost you but you must pay in chocolate.  I will give you the address if you PM me.  The chocolate must be either Lindor Milk Chocolate truffles or large amounts of Hershey bars and is due immediately so you will be assured one of the limited updates that will be available.
