Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Re: #2 Heaven Scent: The Low Fat Vampire Dog Self Esteem Diet/Book reviews


I totally agree. Many reviewers use the format to write an essay and often I am unclear what he/she thinks about the book. Or the reviewer tells you so much you feel as though you've already read the book. I certainly felt that way about Starbucked.

There's a lot to say about the current state of reviewing and how book blogs and websites are affecting reviewing as well as the marketing and promotion of books. I will write more about this soon. In the meantime: Do you read book blogs (other this one)? And, in general, do reviews entice you to buy books?
