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.

split words

Love the nook but recently words are splitting up into two different lines.

any fix for this?

i've tried all the different fonts and it just changes which words get split up.

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:


No, that's a problem with the book file, not with the Nook.  You see it quite often on PDFs, and I've seen it on some poorly produced EPUBs, too.


All you can do, since you've already tried changing font size and found that not to help much, is either live with it, or try to get a better version of the book.


If it's a purchased book, not a freebie from that was scanned any which way from a library book, letting the publisher know might help.
