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.

Nook Classic ?

 

Can you listen to recorded books on the nook classic? I am not familiar with the classic at all and a friend of mine wants to get one for her son, but would like for him to be able to listen to something like books on tape.

Re: Nook Classic ?

I believe you can in MP3 format, and there are plenty or those that can bed checked out of the libraries.  However, this is NOT text to speech, and a MP3 player will serve the same purpose.

Re: Nook Classic ?

So there is no need for a nook classic if the child has a MP3 player??

 

I am sorry if I sound confused, but I have neither, a nook classic nor a mp3 player.

An MP3 player can only play music while the Nook Classic can be used for any epub or pdf book including library eBooks AND MP3 formatted books. If you only want to use the MP3 books then you can certainly get the MP3 player cheaper. If you want flexibility in book formats the Nook is the way to go.
