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.

I wish I had read this before I got my color nook or I would have just kept my black and white. I love to read and I love to be outside but I can't read my color nook outside with my prescription sunglasses on. I'm really upset about this.

Sorry, but if you had done some research, you would have known that LCD screens are very difficult to read in the sun.

Re: Color Nook in the sun

This has long been one of the biggest selling points of the e-ink base-model Nooks and Kindles, that they are much better in sunlight than LCD-based tablets.

Re: Color Nook in the sun

Turn you nook sideways & put it on Full brightness & then you can read in full sunlight.
