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.

George! I don't know why I love the name so much, but I do. Might be something from Of Mice and Men.

Re: What did you name your nook?

I got mine in early Feb I wanted a chance to get to know it before plopping a name on it. Ultimately I ended up with the rather uncreative "My Precioussss" as that is exactly how I talk about it and address it!

Re: What did you name your nook?

I named mine "Shironami".  It's a made up Japanese word combining shiro, white, and nami, wave.  I picture this little white gadget unleashing a tidal wave of books and new ideas on me.  Maybe I'll call my next Nook "TitleWave"!

Re: What did you name your nook?

Under firmware 1.2 I named mine “Dysfunctional nook.” It now has firmware 1.3 and I think I’ll change it to  “Get’n Better nook.”

I named mine Scorpius after Malfoy's son in the final Harry Potter book. Malfoy was my favorite character from the series and I'm also a Scorpio :robotvery-happy:

Re: What did you name your nook?

I had a hard time thinking about what I should name my NOOK, so I enlisted my husband's help. The end result was Gutenberg's Obsolescence.

I named her ... ah ... it  - "ook!" (with the exclamation mark)

 

(with apologies to the UU librarian in Discworld :smileywink:. Thought it was appropriate on so many levels :smileytongue:)

Re: What did you name your nook?

I named my Nook Chiron after the first centaur in Greek Mythology.

 

As you might imagine, I am into astrology and, quite coincidentally, am coming up to my Chiron Return, so it also celebrates that event.

 

Chiron was half man, half horse.  The Nook is half book, half gadget.


Chiron was known as a master musician and a profoundly knowledgeable creature. Gods and Titans eagerly sent their sons to him to be trained in the herioc arts.
