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.

Making an audio nook book

I was wondering how to do such project. I want to try to adapt a old testament or any old aesop or even grimm's tales, with such illustration of my own and do some voice over with a help of a friend or just my mel blanc voice. To one my neice and nephew.


Is this possible with the nook's advantages.


Thanks guys I appreciate the help on how to make this project possible.

Re: Making an audio nook book

It will be possible, but isn't yet.


B&N has released the SDK for app developer's, but hasn't released the coding for creating our own enhanced ebooks.  That should be coming *soon* :smileysad:


What you can do now is sign up for the developer's program here.     You can begin reading up on the features and even download the SDK and Eclipse (what you will build the book in eventually) to get prepped.
