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.

"OVERVIEW" synopsis of book in Library no longer there

When you are in "Library" and select a book with "Item Details & Options" , the screen used to come up with "Overview", a short synopsis of the book. It is no longer there--just a blank screen--no information (just title/author)! If you click on 'View" and select 'Details", they are still there (until B&N decides to do away with them also?). Having the book synopsis in the Library was one of my favorite features of the First Edition--I've purchased several Simple Touch for friends and was disappointed that ST didn't have that feature. THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST USEFUL FEATURES !!! Now all I have in the Library is just a list of titles/authors--nothing showing what the book is about. It was so wonderful being able to pull up a description of each book to help me decide which one to read next. Is anyone else having this problem, or is it just with my Nook?

Add'l info-- I just downloaded a book sample--the "Overview" synopsis is there on this sample. However, on all the other almost 500!!! books in my library, there is nothing under "Overview". I'll post when this synopsis disappears.

On the NST double tap on a book in your library and an overview tab will be displayed with the book synopsis.

I'll tell my friends with the Simple Touch--thank you.
All of mine are still gone, including the new one that was there for a while.
