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.

Signed Book Plates

Mr. Smith,
 
First, allow let me congratulate you on the success of "Child 44", as well as the film production of the book!
 
I wish you every success for your first "child" as well as for any other "children" you create.  I think you have a very promising writing career ahead of you.
 
If Ridley Scott's film version is faithful to the spirit of the novel, I believe "Child 44" could become the second whodunit to win the Best Picture Academy Award after 1967's "In the Heat of the Night".
 
I've bought a number of Advance Reader Copies of "Child 44" as gifts for family members; I also bought an UK First Edition/First Impression autographed of "Child 44" for myself since it's only available in the United States as a First Edition/Second Printing.
 
I would like to obtain autographed name plates to pass out to the people I'd bought "Child 44" copies.  Will you be offering name plates for your readers for their "Child 44" books?
 
If so, would it be possible to obtain four signed book plates?
 
Sincerely,

Hi Ken,

Thanks for posting. And thanks for kind comments - and your generous prophecy for the movie.

I've passed on your message to my publisher. I'll get back to you with an answer tomorrow.


Learn more about Child 44.

Re: Signed Book Plates

Hi Ken,

Welcome to the Barnes & Noble Book Clubs and thanks for logging into this discussion.

I'm afraid this is entirely the wrong place to solicit authors for personal items. Your best bet is to contact your local bookstore or his publisher.

That said, we're glad you are such a fan of this book. We have quite a few threads about the book, so feel free jump into any of those and add to the ongoing conversation.

Thanks for your cooperation.
