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.

Sideload NOOKbooks onto Nook using OSX Lion

I'm going nuts. I'm at wits end, and getting close to flinging my Nook out the window and handetching all of my books into a series of large stone tablets. For whatever reason, (not important) my Nook is not connected to WiFi.

Here's the deal in case my title was unclear.

I'm running OSX Lion (Mac obviously...) and I have NOOK first edition (I'm sure you guys are used to stragglers with NOOK tablets..tehe)

I have the NOOK for Mac application installed. It is up to date, but for some reason the same options suggested in the FAQ's are not available to me. I'm logged in, and I can see all of my books, but when I click a book, instead of offering a pop-up to download it to my nook, it just opens the book for me to read within the app.

I am probably being an idiot, but I need a solution, and for some reason I can't find my problem on the board.

Download and use Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/). It is free and the only way to go with sideloading.

Nook for Mac is a reader app. You do not need any special software to copy ebooks to your Nook. Your Nook will show up on your Mac as a drive. Just copy the books to the Nook like you would do with any other files.

You can either copy the books from the folder Nook for Mac stores them in, or download them from your library on the B&N website.

Copy the files to the My Documents folder on the Nook.
