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: Why I would not buy a nook

Well, yeah. :smileyvery-happy:


But if the OP had posted what turned out to be the real message:


"If you don't want to buy eBooks from Barnes & Noble, but you do want to load thousands of eBooks with variable digital characteristics from other sources onto your eReader, and have your device handle those files with all the bells and whistles that B&N provides for its own books, don't buy Nook because it doesn't do that."


then the only responses that we could have come up with would have been clever variations on


"Well, duuuuuuuuh!" :smileysurprised:


and we would have missed out on this cathartic discussion.  :smileytongue:


And what a loss THAT would have been!  :smileywink:
