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.

Memory problem

When I try to add books ( not B&N) to my documents, using calibre,I am told that there is 'no more memory on the main device'. Since I only have 40 average size books in my documents, this should not be a problem. When I add books to my B&N account, I have no problem. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Go to the "Settings" page of your nook and check the available space. Check the available space on your microSD card also (if you have one installed).

 

Have you loaded any other media, i.e. music files, to your nook?  MP3's will take up a lot of space depending on how many you have.

 

If you are on a Mac, make sure that you empty the trash - the nook will still see the files that you deleted until you do so.

Re: Memory problem

The device has 2 GB of internal memory and can store an estimated 1,000 books. Of that 2 GB, only 1 GB is available to store content. Additionally, 750 MB of that 1 GB are reserved for content bought directly from Barnes & Noble's e-book store, which leaves approximately 250 MB for other files.

 

How can I open up the 750MB reserved space?  I have more open titles than B&N titles.

If you need more space for sideloaded content you will have to buy a microSD card.
