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.

Re: Can I listen to music while reading?

I'm not sure if you are asking about the Nook or NookColor.  If its the Nook Color then yes you can, either via Pandora (online music streaming) or music you've loaded onto the Nook Color manually.  To do so, you'd just plug in the NC to your computer, it would enter USB mode and you can drag and drop the media right into the NC.

Well if you are in the middle of reading, you'd just bring up the menu, select extras, go to your music.  Once you have it all setup, just go back to your book.  Unfortunately there isn't a quick menu to control the music that I've found, to turn it off or to change albums or tracks you have to go back to the extras.

Am I able to listen to music while reading my NOOK 1st?

If so how, and does the NOOK 1st have headphone input?

Yes, there is a headphone jack.
