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.

Connecting to hotspots

I am new to the Nook world and I am having a hard time connecting to hotspots....

 

I have an iPhone and my Nook connectivity keeps failing, it will not connect. Any suggestions?

 

Also, I purchased a book on my laptop and tried to download it to my Nook... how do I do this?

Welcome to the Nook world.

 

Have you successfully connected your Nook to your home or any other wifi network.  The easiest thing to do, if you are able to, is go to a nearby B&N and try to connect to their network.  That way you will know whether your Nook is misbehaving (defective) or if it's a setting on your network causing trouble.

 

If you purchase a book from B&N on your laptop, once your Nook connects to wifi, it will download the book from your B&N account.  If you purchased a book from somewhere else, you need to sideload it to your Nook, which is explained in the user guide, which can be found here -

If you search the boards for "wifi," you may find a similar issue and a solution.

 

Good luck.

If you're trying to use your iPhone as a mobile Internet hub, that isn't going to work.  You Nook needs to communicate with a WiFi router in order to connect.
