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.

Re: Stand for Nook

Got my bookgem. Cool little product. My GF got 4 of for xmas presents so she got the buy 3 get 1 free deal. After getting it in my hands I would def recommend it even at the buy 1 price of $15


Still got my custom built stand for backup.


If I find the smaller version of the thin folding plate stand I am going to get one and experiment with ruberizing.  Just cause I enjoy doing things like that. Maybe ya'll will see a link to my site to buy 1  :smileywink:


easiest to get multi discount from the bookgem site.

Re: Stand for Nook

I found myself doing a fair amount of fighting with the charging cable on my NC.  That proved especially problematic at work while I was trying to listen to music.  A 6$ easel from the art supply store has solved that problem nicely.  I added a trivet and some rubber feet to give it some heft and traction.

Here's the stand:



And here's an action shot:

Re: Stand for Nook

Looks like a winner to me.  I'm going to fashion something similar, I think.  Thanks for the photos.

Re: Stand for Nook

Cool rigging. I know it's slightly more expensive, but I actually forked over $14.95 for the B&N Nook Color stand. It wasn't out yet, I don't think, when you posted this.

It folds and actually tucks into the leather case that I have my Nook in. I don't have to remove the case to use it and it works great.
