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.

The Book as a Whole: Meghan in Jamaica

Meghan retreats to Jamaica to escape the turmoil in her life and, in doing so, detaches from her old persona and responsibilities. What did you think of this episode? Was Meghan being selfish by isolating herself? How did it affect Leo? Bridget? Or was this period in Meghan's life necessary and inevitable? Finally, discuss the outcome of the trip. Does Meghan sustain this growth of character when she reenters the real world? How about Bridget?

Re: The Book as a Whole: Meghan in Jamaica

Personally, I just finished the book, and even though Bridget can accept things the way they have been played I am still a little bit cheezed off at Meghan. I mean, really, she is this public figure and she slips up. So the choice is to flee it all and hide? I would think someone as strongly looked up to as Meghan would have bounced back had she really dealt with it.

But on the other hand, it did give her the opportunity to change. Had the events that unfolded with Evan and the Leo not happened, I think Meghan would have stayed a somewhat static character. It's with those real moments (not edited for tv) that Meghan gets to finally do what she wants to do and on her own terms.
