Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

I have a Nook 1st edition and use it constantly .

 I noticed that the battery needs charging more often and wonder if I should replace the battery.Right now I have to charge it every night and sometimes by evening.

 I looked but haven't found directions on just how to do this.This was a present so all the setting up was completed for me so please say I won't need to change anything if I change the battery.

Re: battery

Instructions on how to remove the back cover and change the battery are in the user guide which is on the Nook in My Documents and on the website in the Nook support area.

Re: battery

I also am recharging every two to three hours. This thing is getting to be a pain.  The beauty was that I could take it with me and not worry about needing to recharge for a while.  Person in store said I just should buy a new Nook.  Oh my--I must have terrible local technical support.
