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. On May 1, we’re saying 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.

Availability?

So my nookcolor shipped yesterday and is set for delivery tomorrow so I was wondering when the nook kids books would be available (the ones with the enhanced content).  I was hoping to download some books for my kids tomorrow but so it doesn't look like the ones designed for the nookcolor are available yet - any idea when we can get them?

[ Edited ]

Richard Scarry's "Colors" and Rudyard Kipling's classic tale "The Elephant's Child" are available FREE with every NOOKcolor and will dowload automatically the first time you connect.

 

Other books will be available in the NOOKcolor's shop when you get the device.  If you go to "Shop", then click on "Browse", you'll see a list for the Kids Picture Books. 

The website will offer the Kids Picture Books later this week (not sure of the timing.

Thanks!  My nookcolor is currently out for delivery so it looks like I'll be able to let the kids play with it when we get home!

I have a regular nook and I am a kid. I like reading the regular books. After reading the nook color kids books I thought they might distract me from the purpose of the nook. To read!

How about Nook kids for Android, not Nookcolor, phones and tablets?
