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.

Bookmarks while reading

I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem. Whenever I try and tap a bookmark at the top of a page, 9 times out of 10 it turns the page rather than bookmarking it.

Re: Bookmarks while reading

I've never had any trouble with it myself but touchscreen devices can be 'sensitive' and it can take a while to figure out how to tap them just right to get the results you want.

 

Are you tapping the top right hand side (corner)? Does the 'bookmark' appear when you tap it? Don't tap it too vigorously or suddenly tilt your nookcolor, and of course regularly wipe down your screen.

 

Hope any of this actually helps.

Didn't realize I was in the 'nook' support thread and not nookcolor...from your description it sounds like the nc though...

Re: Bookmarks while reading

Hi - thanks for your respose.  Yes, I am tapping it gently on the upper right hand corner. Sometimes it just doesn't show up and it turns the page instead.
