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.

February at the General Fiction forum we're going to Paris

[ Edited ]

Paris Noire  


Please join The General Fiction Forum in February for this WWII historical novel based in Paris near the end of the Nazi occupation. It follows one family of Martinique decsendence through this turbulent time and we also get to meet some famous American ex-pats in the process. Join us for a journey that is very personal to the author and a novel that has very personal meanings to her as well. Join us for the conversation, the comraderie and the discussion of this read.


As a special treat the author Francine Howard will be with us thoughout our journey, joining in and replying to comments made by the posters.


And as a very special treat we will also be hosting a visit from Francine's publicist Sarah Burningham founder of LIttle Bird Publicity.


So come along for the ride, make some new friends and connect with old ones too.
