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. 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.

Have B&N figrued it out yet about E-Textbooks or listening to the customer

The title says it all.

 

B&N if going to sell Nooks or Android Tablets in your College stroes get clue and get with it.

 

Start listening to your customer, when they suggest selling Apple Ipad's and Laptops get a clue.

 

When the people buying nooks ask over and over when E-Textbooks coming to Nook, Ipad, and Android..

DO I need to say it again.. Get a clue and get with the program...

 

If not I clue you in to where going to get my books, new tablet, and laptop this year.. Give you a clue they both places start with a "A".(Amazon and Apple) seeing B&N have trouble getting clues and listening to there customers.

I purchased an E-Textbook for my Nook Color and when it displays it does not auto-rotate, and can not zoom in to see the diagrams and read the captions within.  Even with a magnifying lense I can not read the text in the diagrams. Hopefully someone can come up with a cure for the lack of such features.

Unfortunately, for the sake of "branding consitency?", I guess, Barnes and Noble. chose to use the word "NooK" when naming their eTextbook reader.  You CANNOT READ ANY eTEXTBOOKS ON YOUR NOOK.  Nook study

ONLY works on desktops and laptops.
