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.

General Fiction goes to the Mountains in September with One Mountain Away by Emilie Richards

[ Edited ]

One Mountain Away  

Whether your a lifelong fan or never read Emilie Richards you're in for a treat when we read as a group her latest release One Mountain Away we begin the conversation on Monday September 3rd, Labor Day in the US.


She's also celebrating her 70th published novel with One Mountain Away


Emilie's novels always come with a message and in this debut to her new Goddesses Anonymous series the message is clear.


Here's the overview from her website


Peaks and Valleys

With nothing but brains, ambition and sheer nerve, Charlotte Hale built a career as a tough, do-anything-to-succeed real-estate developer. She's at the top of that mountain,but her life is empty. Her friends are as grasping and insincere as she has become. Far worse, she's alienated her family so completely that she's totally lost touch with her only daughter. 

One terrifying day, facing her own mortality, she realizes that her ambition has almost destroyed her chance at happiness. 

So Charlotte vows to make amends, not simply with her considerable wealth, but by offering a hand instead of a handout. Putting in hours and energy instead of putting in an appearance. Opening her home and heart instead of her wallet. 

With each wrenching, exhilarating decision, Charlotte finds that climbing a new mountain-one built on friendship, love and forgiveness-will teach her what it truly means to build a legacy

So whether the kids went back to school or you did why not spend some of September with us at the General Fiction forum as we read One Mountain Away. For an added treat the author Emilie Richards will be spending the month with us too.


Check the General Fiction forum often for the reading schedule, Emilie's interview and my review

don't miss out, it's the perfect read for relaxing in the early days of Indian Summer.
