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.

I was watching Bambi II a little while ago. Even though I am sixteen I still enjoy Disney cartoons.

Re: What are you watching?

I regularly purchase my favorite Disney movies (most recently Sword in the Stone and Sleeping Beauty).  Pooh is still the hands-down favorite.

I have to admit that I haven't read it in a very long time, but I did really like it a lot.  It was pretty creepy.  Here's a description:

 

The Rolfes -- Ben, wife Marian, son David, and Aunt Elizabeth -- are a pleasant family from New York seeking to escape from the doldrums of a summer in their Queens apartment. They find a beautiful old country mansion on Long Island -- restful, secluded, with pool and private beach -- perfect, for the right people. But their "perfect" summer home hides terrors beyond their wildest imaginings. During that long summer the house becomes a nightmare from which there seems to be no escape.

Unfortunately, it appears to have been out of print for some time.

Re: What are you watching?

The last movie I saw in theatres was 500 Days of Summer, which was beyond excellent. I loved it, my boyfriend loved it more. Tonight it's to see Julie and Julia, for I am in the mood for a chick flick. As for what else is on my watching/to be watched list, I've got the first season of Mad Men coming on Netflix 'cause I can't even count how many people have recommended it to me, planning to re-watch Foyle's War, and the second season of Ashes to Ashes (another BBC show and stunning "sequel" to Life on Mars). Lots on the queue! :smileyhappy:

When the end comes, when the ice caps melt and the seas boil and the sky falls, I won't want to be hiding in some stranger's bathroom.

Re: What are you watching?

I've been plowing through Battlestar Galactica (missed it first-run on the Sci-Fi Channel), and currently am next in line to get Battlestar Galactica - Season 4.5.   I'm literally on pins and needles, and I hear the big twist at the end of the finale is brilliant.

 

Meanwhile, I'm also watching Torchwood - Season 2. Really awesome characters, and who can't love Captain Jack? :smileywink:

Re: What are you watching?

It's only the 4th of the month, and I think I've already exhausted my bad movie quotient...

 

Push  Think X-Men made on Twilight's budget. Neat concept, and it could have been much more, but wasn't. Also, blatantly sets up for a sequel that probably won't come unless the DVD has been selling like wildfire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dragonball: Evolution Ohhhhhh, the pain. There's 90 minutes of my life and five I.Q. points that I will never get back. And what are good actors like Chow Yun-Fat, Emmy Rossum, and James Marsters doing slumming in a P.O.S. film like this?

I'm 29 and I still like Disney movies. I tend to avoid the direct-to-video sequels, though.
