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.

downloaded content not showing up in library

I downloaded a few free ebooks this morning, and they are nowhere to be found in my library. when I went back and tried to download again, I get a message saying I've already downloaded the book. I also checked "my documents"-nothing. I also tried "check for new content" and still nothing. Please help! I've only had my nook for a few days, I"m so disapointed I'm already experiencing problems.

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:

 

In "My B&N Library", did you tap "Check for New B&N Content"?  Make sure that you're not in Airplane Mode -- you need to be able to connect to the B&N servers.  And if you have a WiFi only Nook, you need to be connected to a live hotspot.

 

The books should not be in My Documents, so don't be concerned with that.

 

Please post to let us know if they show up.
