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: #9: Our buddies, our shelves

I have long since run out of bookcase room or even room for bookcases.  (One is even hidden in my closet.)  So I mail out books when I finish them to my friends if I think they might enjoy them and in return they do the same.  Anything left over is either brought to a used book store or donated to the library. 
As a plus I adopted two cats last year to keep my dog company and they love books.  So there are a few piles of books that I can't seem to get rid of around the house that have become cat seats.  I change them every so often, different heights and places and that seems to keep them amused.  My dog has also found that books equal good quality time, he likes to knock over those piles. 
Trust me, it will happen when the turtles eating ice cream storm the beaches of Iowa under the cover of dead sheep powered pigeon spitting canons while those overgrown excuses for telephone poles sit around a square table toasting the invention of self replicating soap.
