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.

Introduction

Hi, Rachel,
I'm IrisJoy. In my hometown of Carlstadt, NJ, I'm the chairman of the Literature & Book Club Department of my local Woman's Club. (This means I have the privilege of lugging our huge book bag to/from our meetings and collecting dues.) Until now, it has been our practice to have each member of our department in turn select a book of her choice, read it, and give a brief review at our monthly meeting. For the first time we have decided to select one book for the entire group to read and discuss. Having already read and loved it, I suggested and it was agreed that we select A Thousand Splendid Suns for discussion at our October meeting. As chairman, I will have to lead the discussion and am in need of some guidance in finding questions that will provoke a good discussion. I thought at Barnes & Noble I would find the help I need and was pleasantly surprised to see that a discussion of A Thousand Splendid Suns will soon begin. I look to you all for help. (I have also read The Kite Runner -it was superb!)
