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.

Re: pic question

As a "screensaver" that apears when you haven't turned a page for a while and the reader goes into sleep mode? As the image that appears when the main menu is on the color touch screen? Or do you wnat to be able to flip through a series of images like they are pages in a photo album?

 

All of these are possible.

 

Using your own images for the first two involves some simple resizing of the images with a photo editor (some free ones are quite adequate) on a computer and a few file transfers from the computer to the Nook. Screensavers may require the creation of a folder in the Nook's solid state hard drive using the computer and the Nook's cable.

 

A "book" of photos can be created with an editing program like OpenOffice Write, saved.as a PDF file and transfered to the Nook through the Nook's cable. When I tested this procedure with a small "album" I set the page formating for the document to the size of the reader's screen minus the usual bands that the reader uses to show  the  WiFi signal strength and time at the top and the page number information at  the bottom. I haven't attempted converting the PDF file to any other formats.
