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: Nook vs. Kindle

@MikeThinks,

Here is an eBook request thread that is actively monitored:

A NOOK software update with enhanced features will be launched in the coming months.  We are committed to offering an easy-to-use, comfortable, and fun NOOK eReading experience across multiple platforms

 

With regards to PDF's I can relay information regarding Font sizing if that is an issue you are referring to...it depends how the file and the text is configured in the file, whether the text is rendered as text or as a graphic image. If it is a graphic image in PDF, then the text size CANNOT be changed. The text size change also depends on other formatting, security and parameter settings that are set in the original PDF source file, which may limit whether the font size can or cannot be changed and how the text appears if the font size is changed. 

 

Bottom line, is that yes, the font size should be able to be changed in PDF documents but it depends on each specific file.
