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.

Book Labeling

Do you label your books? I know many people share, borrow, and give away books they've read, so what is the best way to label your book?

I've seen book labels sold in the store, but they are permanently stuck in the book. What happens if I decide I want to give the book away or sell it back to the store?

Re: Book Labeling

Do you mean a bookplate?  (Sort of like an oversize sticker on the inside cover?)
 
You can usually get them off (or any sticker, really) with a hair dryer and pair of tweezers.  Start at the loosest corner, pick it up with the tweezers and aim the hair dryer (set on hot) at the corner.  The heat will dry up the adhesive and allow the bookplate to gradually peel free, just keep aiming the hair dryer at the junction between the bookplate and the cover.  You'll need to be patient because some take longer than others.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.
