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.

Partially Read Books & Page Turning

The first 2 books I read on my Nook kept track of where I was so when I clicked on the Reading Now button it automatically went to the last page I read.  The last 2 aren't doing that any more.  I have to try to remember what  chapter I was on and choose it.  The Furtherest Point Read doesn't work.


I also cannot get the pages to turn by using the bottom screen and "swiping".  Any suggestions?

Re: Partially Read Books & Page Turning

If you are turning the nook off, you should stop doing that until after the next software update.  You should just put it to sleep.  There is a lot of information on that throughout the forum.  On the swipe, you should be moving your finger before it touches the screen, then touch it lightly in one motion keeping your finger moving from right to left the whole time.
