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. 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.

How do you submit picture books?

Has anyone submitted picture books to Nook? Do you have to send in the illustrations as JPEGS? Did you scan and submit yourself or have it professionally scanned? Thx for suggestions.

Re: How do you submit picture books?

Hello. I put my picture book together in InDesign and redited in Sigil and saved it as .epub. I used Nook, Adobe Digitial Editions, and FB Reader to proof the final epub and then validated it at


If you do not have electronic versions of the illustrations then they must be scanned. I don't think this BN service includes scanning images. In the very least, I believe it has to be sent in Word for them to convert to .epub.
