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.

Why can't I turn my nook on???

I haven't used it in a week or two. I plugged it in and the yellow indicator light is on, but I can't seem to turn the actual screen on. I've tried holding down the button and all that, and nothing. Help?

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:

 

Sounds like your battery completely discharged while your Nook wasn't being used.

 

Let it charge for a few hours, then try turning it on again.

That's great!  :smileyvery-happy:

 

 

I would still recommend giving it an hour or two to charge before you use it, though.  And in the future, let it go into sleep mode for short (including overnight) idle times and, if it will be off for more than a day, power it down.  And charge it as soon as the "Time to charge your Nook" message comes up.

 

Happy reading.
