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.

[ Edited ]

Some new purchases:

 

Red Velvet Car  Great new release.  I can't find Jupiter's Darling on here, even though I bought it from here within the past month or so.  I'm not sure how I missed that one; I love it.  I think the title is the name of an Esther Wiliams movie.

 

Twilley/Scuba Divers  - an overlooked artist.  I had to laugh so many times when I would go into a record store and ask if they had any Dwight Twilley, and they would lead me over to the Country section!

 

 

 

 

Then I went back to TSO, after having seen them in concert last month (absolutely fantastic!!!!!).

Beethoven's Last Night 

 

Night Castle  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I'm back to my 100 Greatest Artists countdown:

 

Greatest Hits, Vol. 3 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

#41, Van Halen

1984

Yeah but I can't get "Mello Yello" out of my head. And that recent cell phone comercial using "Season of the Witch". (chuckle) I had to go and listen to it, just had to.

Annie Lennox has to be one of the most incredible singers.  My favorite on that album is 'A Whiter Shade of Pale'.  I also love her albums Diva and Songs of Mass Destruction, but somehow I just can't quite get into Bare; I don't know why.  I even have the VHS of her concert in Central Park.

Re: What are you listening to?

I haven't posted here in a while, but I got two new CDs at Christmas:

Kaleidoscope Heart 

 

Hooked!  I have both artists' debut albums, so these are great additions :smileyhappy:

Off the Medua album I love, and never get enough of "Take Me to the River" and "Train In Vain".

 

Have you heard her Christmas album that came out last year?  I loved it.
