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.

Hi Kristin,

I just received my copy today but noticed that we don't officially start until July 12th. Will you be posting a schedule for us to follow? I don't know if this was covered yet in another thread...how is this discussion going to work? I've been a part of many First Looks but I'm assuming this will work differently.

Hi caritasSS,

I know that with past First Look selections it depends on what part of the country you live in. Usually they start arriving on the east coast first (I live on Long Island) and then work their way across the country. I'm sure you'll receive it soon:smileyhappy:

Re: Schedules, News & Updates

I just received mine yesterday (Monday the 14th) and I live in Minnesota (so the midwest).

I've never done this "first look" thing before, so I'll be curious to find out how it all works...

Got mine today in California. It's a good thing I didn't pay for it because it's in pretty bad condition from mailing. But the CD's are fine so there should be no problems!

Re: Schedules, News & Updates

I received my CDs in the mail two days ago, in Idaho, and I'm looking forward to diving in!  I've never participated in an online class or discussion group like this one before, so I'm not sure just how it will work.  I assume instructions and clarification will be forthcoming prior to the start of the course, right?

We received our materials last week. We'll be out of town July 12 but back by July 14 hope we see a schedule so we can stay on track. My son and I are learning together.
