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.

Sometimes we name them. Sometimes they tell us what their name is.

Re: What did you name your nook?

It's name is "VEX".

 

Everything on the network is identified by names beginning with V though. No particular reason. It started with a few similar names and ballooned from there.

 

My PC: VEGA

Fiance's PC: VENOM

My Netbook: VOODOO

Fiance's Netbook: VISHNU

Linux Server: VENUS

NAS Harddrive Rack: VESSEL

Router: VORTEX

Nook: VEX

Re: What did you name your nook?

My Nook recently underwent a name change. It is now "Nookstrom", which is a play on my name and also roughly translates to "Nook Stream". I wish that we were able to use non-English characters on the Nook, because I would prefer to use the Swedish spelling of "ström".

Re: What did you name your nook?

I bought my NOOK a little over a week ago and I love it. The perfect name for my Nook is PADD (Personal Access Display Device). Any diehard Star Trek fans out there will know this one. This fits in perfect with all my devices:

 

Network - Starfleet

Desktop - Enterprise

Laptop1 - Shuttle1

Laptop2 - Shuttle2

NOOK - PADD

 

:smileyhappy:

Re: What did you name your nook?

I've teased my husband that when he's dead and gone, I'm going to run off with Julio, the pool boy.  So.....I named my nook Julio the Pool Boy!

I named my Nook "JN" - short for "Just Nook".

 

(Many thanks to "JD" in "Dead Like Me")

Re: What did you name your nook?

I named my nook "Mrs. Thompson" in honor of the 3rd grade teacher that ignited my love for reading in 1964. She passed away a few years ago, but I still smile and remember her when I see her name on my nook home page.

Re: What did you name your nook?

When I showed my 5 year old son my new nook, he said to me "mama, Nook rhymes with Book." So that is what I named it - nook rhymes with book.  I think it was pure genius!!

Re: What did you name your nook?

After buying the Alice in Wonderland cover I decided to name mine Rabbit Hole. I get lost in my nook just the same as Alice got lost in the rabbit hole after all. =] It's also pretty fitting since one of my nicknames is Bunny.
