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.

Lend Me Problems...Incorrect Contact Email

Hi; I entered a new contact to send a book to and I entered the wrong email address - I fat fingered it.  So, my lend me offer is now sitting out in cyberspace - since I cannot cancel the lend me from my end.  Why is that?  I should be able to withdraw my lend me offer or cancel it.  Now I don't have access to this book until the 14 days is up?  Also, why the 14-day limit on lending?  I own the book - it's no different than me lending a hard copy to someone allowing them to keep it however long they need.  Perhaps limiting a single book to a contact is more acceptable than giving them a 14 day window to finish a book.


Any help with the email sitting in cyberspace and how to cancel the lend me is appreciated.

Re: Lend Me Problems...Incorrect Contact Email

you will have to contact the CS at 1-800-THE-BOOK to cancel the lend


as for the 14 day window, that is not B&N's call, the limit was imposed by the publishers, as is what books are on the lendme program

my life is a Soap Opera, and I want a new head writer!

[ Edited ]

Here it is over 2 years later and I have spent the last hour and a half searching through the vast and user unfriendly FAQ database on, to find this answer; only to have to resort a Google search (thanks a million Google) to find out that this answer is still the same. Oh, how far we've come. I guess I will have to wait until 800-THE-BOOK is open tomorrow.
