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.

Re: What are you listening to?

The Annie Lennox album is fantastic.

Sleeping at last.  A beautiful sound. Whimsical yet mysterious. Great to read to or whatever your pleasure.

Adele -21Discovered Adele about 6 weeks before the Grammy Awards.  Her voice is amazing.  The pitch she uses when she sings along with the instrumental accompaniment keeps me listening over and over again.  Evidently, I'm not the only one who feels this way since Adele took home 6 Grammy awards.

Godspell [Original Off-Off-Broadway Cast]  

Jazz  

 

Project Runway did a challenge for a costume for a new production of Godspell, so I just had to pull out the CD and listen to it.  Then I watched the movie Paul, starring the hilarious Simon Pegg, and I was thinking about Shaun of the Dead and the scene where they kill the zombies to Queen's Don't Stop Me Now, so I had to listen to that, too.

I had not been listening much except radio. Even that mostly informational. I am trying to get back into music. Thanks for this thread.

Dance Collection  

Alpocalypse   

 

 

 

 

I'm listening to Donna Summer (RIP).  I loved dancing to her hits back in the disco days!  The Anthology has a lot of later stuff I didn't know (apparently she went through a reggae period, too), and I had to get the Dance Collection in order to get the full-length version of No More Tears, with Barbra Streisand, which is my favorite.

 

I haven't bought a lot of new CDs lately, but I did get Weird Al's latest, and also a 2-disc set of baroque music, which I like to listen to when I go to bed.

I don't know the Donna Summer song with Streisand so I will have to see if it's on youtube.
