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.

Welcome from your Moderator!

Welcome to the Barnes and Noble online discussion of Arthur Phillips marvelously haunting third novel, Angelica. Despite the opening claim of the novel itself that it is not a ghost story, you’ll likely turn the lights up pretty bright when you stay up late to sink into it. The wisps of something possibly seen, the creaks and cracks, the terror of not being able to protect your own sleeping child in your own home--can do more to chill a reader than most horror films!

If you’re familiar with Phillips' first two novels, I think you’ll find his range tremendously impressive. He has captured, in his poetic prose, an early twentieth century archaeologist going insane, young American hipsters in Budapest in the late twentieth century, and here, a small household of Victorians in London, caught up in the terrors of their interlocking psychological, scientific, social, spiritual, and sexual worlds!

I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Hi, Kathy!

Good to see your name on a post here! I've been absorbed in the Harry Potter groups for the past few months.

Rachel -

My friend in Oklahoma, Curtis, was in one of the first groups for the previous book and the group was filled with mostly young people - pre-teen and teen. How have the groups been lately?
