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.

Book wont open, wont download newest software

[ Edited ]

Brand new nook. Got it today.... it wont open the new book that I bought. I have archived it, and unarchieved. Turned the darn thing on and off, and have done the whole check for b&n content trying to get the software update thinking that was my issue.... all to no avail bah. Any help would be great, thanks.

Re: Book wont open, wont download newest software

I have/had this same problem.  My family spent all day trying to figure it out.  Ended up erasing and deregistering the nookcolor.  Reregistered it and all the books immediately downloaded.  I was then able to update to 1.0.1.  The nook color says that it had an update to 1.5 available through the notification, but throught the support page it will only update to 1.0.1 and the regular nook's update is the one that shows the 1.5.  I had to follow the manual update procedures to make it work.  That seems to have solved the problem, but only time will tell.  I am seriously disappointed with the quality of the reader, and the support available.  The servers seemed to be to busy today and can only imagine how it will be tomorrow.
