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.

How do I change the registration on a Nook?

My dad just got a new color Nook for his birthday, and he wants to give me his old black and white Nook that isn't all that old.  What we're trying to find out is how does he transfer his library of books to his new nook ( all bought at B&N ) and how do we change the registration of his old nook into my name from his?  Thanks to anyone who has an answer!

The transfer will be automatic. His B&N e-books are associated with his B&N account. When he registers his NOOK Color with the account, he'll have access to his e-books.


To transfer the old NOOK, just go into Settings>Device Settings and unregister it. Then register it with the new account. You'll need to have a wireless connection for both unregistering and registering.
