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.

nook battery charges by itself....

Every time I take my nook outside and it is exposed to the sun for more than 3 minutes, it shows that it is charging, without being plugged in! Then the battery symbol will disappear, but under setting it shows that the nook is charged to 263%.  As long as I don't turn the nook off completely, it will work fine, but I don't really know what the battery charge is.  When I plug it in to charge, it will eventually reset itself and all is well.  But this happens every time I take it outside.  It isn't that hot here, I'm in PA.  Humid, yes, over 95, no. Anyone have any ideas? Battery or nook problem?

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:


As you've figured out, that is not normal behavior.  Better call Customer Service at 1-800-THE-BOOK (1-800-843-2665), Option 2, Digital Supprt, and talk it over with them.


Good luck!
