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.

Just another way amazon forces you to use their products only. Like the amazon app store is going to be used after this anyway..

It's not technically rooting.  It's actually booting off the card itself. 

 

Rooting tends to refer to altering the NC's original OS to allow administrator (root) privileges.

 

But, yes.   Yes you can.  Check out eBay.

 

Or you can easily make your own for half the cost (and probably have a higher-quality card, to boot.  "To boot."  Get it?  :smileyvery-happy: ).

Do you think that means Amazon is going to come out with a tablet ereader based on the Android platform? I hope that B&N comes out with an announcement soon.

Re: New Angry Birds exclusively sold by Amazon Appstore - Opening March 22?

I am hoping that we will have an app store soon, but it doesn't make or break my nook experience whatsoever... I have an ipod touch, Ihave a droid phone and thus I have plenty of area to play little games like angry birds, but it does seem as if the angry bird exclusive is only one type of the angry bird series.

Wow, looks like some Angry Birds haters needed somewhere to vent!   :smileysurprised:

 

Just because I would like some additional games on my NC does not mean I do not use it to read.  I primarily use it to read.  Sometimes I surf the web.  Sometimes I play crossword puzzles.  I would just like a little more variety.  If all I wanted to do was read, I would have purchased a Nook classic.


Or a book   :smileyhappy:

I guess the Amazon AppStore will be available on tablets.  Who would need it because current tablets have access to Apple's AppStore (ipad) or the Android Market (other tablets).  I don't see a point in an Amazon AppStore unless Amazon develops a color reader.  Who wants an AppStore for e-ink?

   Hey -- just heard from Mela08 that Amazon has a color Kindle that they're about to announce! Spread the word! ;-)
