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.

Unable to Complete Operation

I bought several books on my nook and they appear in my library, but two of them when I click to download I receive the error message, Unable to Complete Operation. All my other book downloaded fine. I have checked my account and there are no issues with my credit card or payment. I have tried unregistering/registering my nook. And the obvious turn it off and then back on; nothing has worked. Any helpful ideas would be much appreciated.

Some people have had success in this sort of case with archivng the books on the web, synchronizing, unarchiving, then trying to download again.

Just out of curiousity, are the books in question supported by your Nook?  Some books don't work on all platforms.

I bought the book through the nook shop.

Re: Unable to Complete Operation

What is the book? As mentioned above, not all books work with every nook. I have several enhanced ebooks that I cannot download to my N1E or NST?
