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: What did you name your nook?

Mine is (currently) named Yuri, after the first human in outer space. 

 

This is a break from tradition for me, because my gadgets are usually named after hockey players.

Re: What did you name your nook?

I don't have my Nook in my hands yet, but it shipped about 3 days ago. I'm thinking about naming it S'nookie after the most ridiculous show, Jersey Shore's, character Snookie. I thought it was quite funny! :womantongue:

Without even thinking about it, it instantly became the Nookster.  Works for me!

Re: What did you name your nook?

I named my nook Steve...

 

Penny: I'd feel better if I just knew what it was called.

Hammy: Let's call it Steve!

Verne: Steve?

Hammy: It's a pretty name.

Heather: Steve sounds nice.

Penny: I'm a lot less afraid of Steve.

Ozzie: [kneeling before "Steve"] Oh, great and powerful Steve. Whaddya want?!


From "Over the Hedge".  Plus the monkey from "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" was named Steve. What can I say, I have a 5 year old....

Re: What did you name your nook?

I named mine Lulu - "Lu" = "Read" in French. I'm considering making her last name "Livre" (book!)

Re: What did you name your nook?

I got mine last night. Named it My Sinister Reader. Just like my name here, I love paying homage to all the lefties in the world and that we do things a little different!

Re: What did you name your nook?

I named mine Nookie because I am retired and when my "working" wife or friends asks me what I'm doing all day I can say I was getting some nookie.
