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.

Do I need to be connected to wifi to update all the books in my library onto my nook? I can hook it up to a computer with an internet connection, but that doesn't seem to be working...

If you want the books to be in your My B&N library on the Nook then you need to be connected to WiFi.  Connecting to a computer doesn't connect the Nook to the internet.  When you connect the Nook to the computer it is just like connecting any type of external drive, such as a flash drive.

 

You can download the books to your computer and sideload to the Nook if you don't have access to WiFi, there's instructions for sideloading on the Nook support page.

Yes you need to have WIFI or 3G to update the books on the Nook no connect to the PC.  Once you know you have WIFI connection in the B&N library click on check for new content and that should update all your books but if you have a lot, it may take a couple times.  On my Nook color it shows all 380 books but has a DL symbol beside them.
