New This Week

We are disappointed to announce that the Nook Periodicals will be discontinued this winter. As much as we wish to continue providing digital magazines, Barnes & Noble*, the company providing the digital magazines, no longer collaborates with our e-book and audiobook vendor. About half of the titles will expire in early January and the rest of the titles will expire in March.

*Note that your existing Nook e-reader should continue to work as it always has with e-books and audiobooks.

We have a new digital magazine provider for you!
