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.

Re: eBooks won't download.

Might have worked for you, but not for me. supposedly it is happening just to Mastercard and paypal users but on my other thread, i heard it was affecting visa as well. I did all the above and never did get my books and can't download things i paid for months ago as well.

Re: eBooks won't download.

I had a problem downloading new eBooks for the first time when I first got my NOOK Tablet. The solution was to de-register and re-register the device. Remember to remove your SD card before you de-register as the process deletes the content on your device. Not sure if it effects your SD card or not but it is is not worth the risk. After re-registering you will need to download all your content. Hope this helps someone and saves a call to tech support.
