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.

Nook won't turn on

My nook reads "Your NOOK has turned off to conserve power. Press button on top to power it up." When I press the button, it doesn't turn on. My nook was charged very recently so I doubt battery life is an issue.

Re: Nook won't turn on



Welcome!  :smileyhappy:


You don't say what you mean by "charged very recently".  If your Nook was charged several days ago and left on without being used, particularly if it wasn't in Airplane Mode, it might have discharged.


Try plugging it in to charge, wait about an hour, then give it a try while still plugged in.  See whether your Nook is fully charged before unplugging.
