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.

End of October Clubs; Looking to November

[ Edited ]

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder that this is the final week of the scheduled discussions in October. I hope you all have had a great time talking to Cesar Millan, Claire Messud, James Citrin, Dalia Sofer, and Laura Moriarty. They'll be saying their goodbyes this week and I hope you take time to thank them as well -- and if you have any final questions or comments, you’ve still got time, but post them now.

October discussions start on Monday, October 29th. Author Appearances include Anita Diamant on the 10th anniversary of The Red Tent; Maggie O'Farrell on The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox; Ann Packer on Songs without Words; and Michael C. White on Soul Catcher.

Also, just in time for the holidays, Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Marjorie Liu, and Vicki Pettersson are planning on stopping through The Paranormal Book Club, as they read Holidays are Hell.

I'm sure many of you are looking forward to our amazing moderator-led discussions on The Almost Moon, Bridge of Sighs, the exciting conclusion of the His Dark Materials trilogy -- The Amber Spyglass, and a great Mark Twain satire -- A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.

The October debut of our First Look book club with The Monsters of Templeton is still going great, as is the debut of The Crime Club. Thanks for participating in these great new discussions! And don't forget to check out the rest of our great moderator-led and reader-led discussions. Click here for all new November discussions, or feel free to browse all book clubs.

Meanwhile, enjoy this last week of October's book clubs!

Jessica, we also had Lynn Stegner visit us and shared her thoughts about THERE WAS A FIRE INSIDE MY HEAD.

Mine too!

And the moderator (Connie, from the Harry Potter and His Dark Materials groups) is somewhat of an expert on Twain.

Also, November 30th is Mark Twain's birthday...

Should be a great conversation.

Thanks!

Re: End of October Clubs; Thanking ALL authors who appeared in October on this site!

It may have been an oversight on your admin's part, but we also had Lynn Stegner visit us and shared her thoughts about THERE WAS A FIRE INSIDE MY HEAD.

as well as Jonathan Wilson on his biography of Marc Chagall.

Both authors need recognition for their kindness in sharing their thoughts on this B&N bookclub site.

Re: End of October Clubs

Of course, IBIS is absolutely correct --

Last but not least, don't forget to thank Lynn Stegner (in the Book Explorers club) for joining the conversation of Because a Fire Was in My Head; and Jonathan Wilson (in Jewish Encounters), who discussed Marc Chagall.

Re: End of October Clubs

Is there a "Philosophy" club by chance? I love discussing it.

There was talk of one, and at one point it looked as though BNBC was committed to starting one, but it never happened. Which is too bad.
