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.

Opps Technical Difficulties

This is the message I keep getting when I try to download my nook books on my PC. I log into my account on the website and it will not let me download any of my books in my library. If I do it through the Nook reader for PCs they are there and will download, but I want to be able to get them from the website. Any ideas/ help?

Re: Opps Technical Difficulties

It works for me. It could be a problem with the browser you're using, or a problem with the bn.com web site (bn.com is notorious for its unreliability).

 

But it's better to use NOOK for PC anyway, because the filename is better. It's better for humans because it contains the title (well, enough of the title to know what the book is), and it's better for your NOOK because it only has one dot in it. NOOK (1E, at least) won't open EPUB files whose names have more than one dot.

 

If you download from the web site, you're going to end up renaming every file you download. Using NOOK for PC saves you that grief.
