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.

changing text size

I just got my Nook yesterday. It's great and fairly user friendly but I have a few things I cant figure. How do you change the font and text size? I have tried what they recommend but I dont see the submenus they say should be there. Also, is there a dictionary? I am reading books either from the library or previously purchased and stored on ADE. Do you have to purchase B&N books in order to access these features? Any help is appreciated. Terri

Re: changing text size

(I presume that you're talking about a NOOK 3G or a NOOK Wi-Fi.)

 

You need to scroll the menu. The items you're looking for are farther down.

 

The text font and size is under Preferences. The dictionary is under "Look up word".

A lot of times it is simple.  If you check out the link in Doug's signature, you'll find a lot of useful information.

 

Enjoy.

Check the User Guide: page 121-122 for the font/size; page 129 for the dictionary.
