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.

Re: Nook Version 1.5: Are you having this Issue?

[ Edited ]

This issue has yet to be resolved for me (after nearly six months, several calls to customer service, and three posts on this forum).  The bottom line is that I can no longer download books at home.   I have to go someplace with a "better" wi-fi connection (even though my own wi-fi connection worked fine before Firmware Update 1.5 and still works fine for everything else).   Does anyone know when we can expect a firmware update that resolves this issue?   I must say that the responsiveness of B&N to this problem is so poor that it borders on the unprofessional. With a new editiion of the Nook coming soon, perhaps they simply intend to leave owners of the old Nook "in the dust".    I am afraid that I am losing faith in this company...

If the 1.6 update released today doesn't fix it, you're probably stuck. Sam says, "We don’t anticipate any further updates at this time."
