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.

Re: returning to cover page

You really only see the cover page on some books in your library, home screen or shelves. To to to the first page of a book, or to navigate to any specific page, tap anywhere in the lower middle part of the screen of you book and the settings menu will show. That is where you can set the font, brightness etc for a book. At the left if content. You can go to a specific chapter, title page etc. Or the slider bar can take you to specific pages.


If you are new to your Nook I recommend you spend some time looking thru the user guide which  has lots of helpful information about all aspects of the nook.
