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.

Welcome from Your Moderator!

Hello, Readers! And welcome to the Barnes & book club for Charles Dickens's A CHRISTMAS CAROL. I'm ConnieK, and I'll be your moderator for this discussion. It's that time of year again, when food and family come together with good times and good talk and maybe just a little bit of downtime to fit in a few good books in between. I look forward to re-reading and sharing this old-time holiday classic with you all!

If I can be of any help with the club at any time, please do let me know. You can reach me off the board by clicking on the tiny envelope at the top right-hand corner of the board screen and sending me an IM (Instant Message). Feel free to start threads on topics of interest to you. You start a thread by clicking on "New Message" at the top left of your screen.

I will set up threads for chapter groupings for those who would like to discuss as they read. I'll paste this to the top of our board. Please avoid discussing topics from later in the book than those chapters so as not to spoil the book for others. In the section of the board below the line, we will place any topics for discussion for those who have completed the book. Feel free to post "Spoilers" of any kind in those threads--likewise, readers who would not like to know how the story ends before they read it for themselves are cautioned to avoid the threads below the line.

I wish all of you a joyous season as we prepare for the holidays!
