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.

Re: Why did you choose "Nook" ?

I received the nook as a gift and was overjoyed, until I tried to borrow books from the public library (a great feature on paper). Finally after a month the nook icon finally appeared on my laptop and I was able to download library eBooks onto it.  Now I just have to figure out how to transfer between computers. I downloaded eBooks to my PC and would like to transfer them my laptop so I can read them on the nook. SIGH... Any suggestions?


 

Are they B&N books, library books or from somewhere else.  You copy eBooks from one computer to another just like you would transfer any other file.  And why don't you just connect your Nook to the PC and copy them using the PC.  Is there some reason you have to do it through the laptop?  Sorry just a little confused about the problems you are having.

 

I download library books all the time with no problem.  I use both my laptop and my Netbook to do this, without any problems.

 

Perhaps a more detailed explanation of the problems you are experiencing would help.
