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.

??? WTH - B&N website shows 'The Help' as "Lent"  shows 'The Help' as being "Lent".


I bought 'The Help' from Barnes & Noble, (awesome book BTW) and wanted to lend it to my niece who also has an NC but it's Not a lendable book... WTH??

See this post:


Apparently around the time that Kindle joined the Lend Me program, a bunch of publishers pulled out of the Lend Me program.  Penguin was one of those publishers - and Penguin publishes The Help.


The website was designed long before the program changed, and it hasn't been updated since then.


See the thread in my signature about how you might still share this book with your niece..

Great book!  If you can't figure out how to lend it (it's really lame that they can pull the plug on the lendability of a book you purchased as lendable, btw), I checked it out of my local library's ebook database.  I had to go on a waiting list for it, but they had several copies, and I only had to wait about a week and a half to get it.
