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.

Side crack under > button

Is it common to have the case crack in a perfect straight line along the bottom right > button which I use to turn the page? I pre-ordered my Nook and received it in the second release shipment when it first came out so I haven't even had it a year. Is this something that I can exchange?

Re: Side crack under > button

@ Hel1219,


A quick search of "crack" (above right) will give you numerous posts of cracks on the nook's buttons, showing you that it is a manufacturer's defect and affected nook's have been exchanged under the manufacturer's one-year warranty.
