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.

Multiple Nooks with one account

I am trying to decide if I want to purchase a Nook or not.  If you purchase multiple Nooks, such as myself and my husband, can we link them to the same account and share all the same books?  I've seen the lend feature but it has a limit of 14 days and that will be a hassle since we share all of the things we purchase (one household and all).

 

Does anyone know if this it is possible to link both of our Nooks to the same online account? Thanks!

Re: Multiple Nooks with one account

Yes, however if you both read the same books at the same time you might not want to (or at least do it with airplane mode on) as the nook is supposed to sync last page read between devices.

 

If you choose not to use the same account for your nooks there are other ways of sharing content.

You could share B&N accounts, but I don't recommend it. You'll keep tripping each other up as your NOOKs synchronize which books are loaded and what page they're on.

 

See my signature for information on how to share e-books within a family.

Re: Multiple Nooks with one account

I share my account with another nook and I love it!  It's so easy, and let's face it, the only person that knows how to sideload is me sooooo this saves me a lot of extra effort!  :smileywink:
