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.

Skipping pages !

When I turn the page it skips ahead 2 pages; to get on the correct page I have to take 2 steps forward and one step back every time. Getting a bit old. Please help!

Re: Skipping pages !

Mine has never done that, not with books purchased from B&N or from books I got elsewhere.  I'd advise you to contact customer support

Re: Skipping pages !

Are you using the buttons or the swipe method to change pages?  if the buttons perhaps its a stickimg button.  Probably will need CS to replace the Nook.

The book I just started reading -- Cutting for Stone -- is also skipping pages though not every time I turn the page. This happens whether I swipe or use the page forward button; it usually skips 2 pages occasionally 3. As the book is poorly formatted I thought this was simply an anomaly for this book. I finished 2 other books this last week & numerous books since I got the nook last Feb. & have never seen this behavior.

Re: Skipping pages !

I too have experienced page skipping while pressing the >. The only way I know it is page skipping is when the sentance doesn't make sense. When I press < it skips 2 pages back, then pressing > will advance only 1 page. Looks like I will be getting a new device.

Re: Skipping pages !

I have the same issue and called Digital Support and they told me to Power Off then back on.that was the only solution I got out of them which with all these people having this issue I think they need to look into it a little more than power off then on. Please post if you received a different solution
