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.

Why does PubIt! only pay a 65 percent royalty

As compared to Amazon Kindle's 70%, Kobo's 70%, iBooks 70% or Smashwords 85%?

Smashwords is something of the scrappy newcomer in that mix, so they make an extra effort. Otherwise, 65 vs 70 isn't that great a stretch, though it is an interesting question.

Re: Why does PubIt! only pay a 65 percent royalty

The difference is 8 percent of your money.

 

If the IRS could tax you for 8 percent less, you'd take it, right?

 

Better example: its well known the ceiling for ebook royalties with traditional publishers is 25 percent.

 

So every dollar counts!
