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.

For the Manga Fans...

[ Edited ]

My daughter purchased one of the mangas available at the 'other' store so I sideloaded it onto my nook and she has it on her Sony.

 

I know I was curious as to how this was going to work out and it's not bad.  I've got pictures from both readers below along with zooms (I show two zoom levels, you can see the bar on the left hand side) from the Sony.  All photos are of the same page in the book.  Please excuse the quality of the photographs as my hands are really shaky today.  :smileyhappy:

Awesome, Frog, thanks!

 

It looks pretty good without the zoom on the nook, but I'm used to reading small type and don't have any trouble doing so.  The zoom function would make it so much easier for so many people, though!

If I could get the latest "Shonen Jump" manga translated to english and sent to my nook as soon as its released(thursday nights) then I would do that in a heart beat!

Then use Calibre to shove it onto your Nook after zipping em' up.  Really easy actually!

Re: For the Manga Fans...

B&N doesn't have a specific category yet for Graphic Novels/Manga/Comics, but a whole lot of major and smaller publishers are being added everyday. 

 

Reading Manga/comics on mobile tablet devices like the NOok and iPad is just the way to go. Extremely advantageous for both readers and publishers.

 

Independent Publishers like me have sold more copies of our works through the Nook / Kindle markets than we did through paperbacks.

Loaded Scott Pilgrim and Bleach and the results definitely impressed.
