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.

Trouble downloading free kids books

I can't seem to download any of the free kids books from my B&N account to my new Nook Color. It is saying there is a technical problem that my device does not support these files. Do I need to download something additional before I can download any kids books???

The one's that came with your NC?

 

you can't download them to a classic nook or the PC version of nook, but should have no problems at all going to your library on the NC and taping it to download them.

They are not showing in my library. I didn't even know I had them until I tried to purchase one and it said that I already had it. Then when I looked in my B&N nook library they were there but it won't let me download them to my Nook Color.

Same here. They don't appear in my library even after synchronizing.

On advice from another thread, I deleted the book, then reordered it. It then showed up when I synchronized.
