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.

End of September Book Clubs; Looking to October

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder that this is the final week of the scheduled discussions in September. I hope you all have had a great time talking to J. A. Jance, Jasper Fforde, Sarah Addison Allen, and Lisa See. They'll be saying their goodbyes this week in their respective boards 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 1st. Author Appearances include Claire Messud on The Emperor's Children; Cesar Millan on Be the Pack Leader; Laura Moriarty on The Rest of Her Life; Dalia Sofer on her debut, The Septembers of Shiraz; and James Citrin on The Dynamic Path.

We're so excited about the debut of the First Look Book Club, who will be discussing Lauren Groff's The Monsters of Templeton. (If you were unable to sign up for this month's discussion, click here to find out how to be notified about future First Look discussions.)

We also have the debut of another ongoing Book Club in October. Please help us welcome the editors at Hard Case Crime, as they moderate discussions of thrilling paperback potboilers. They'll begin with a look at the life and works of crime genius Raymond Chandler and his iconic tough guy character, Philip Marlowe.

And don't forget to check out the rest of our great moderator-led discussions, and reader-led discussions. Click here for all new October discussions, or feel free to browse all book clubs.

Meanwhile, enjoy this last week of September!
