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.

Or, more recently, snowy Wn. State!  Welcome to another Evergreen Stater -- there are a couple of us here.  Where in the state do you hail from?  I'm from San Juan Island, and we have another stalwart from the Ferndale area.

Re: Introduce yourself

As an actress myself, the book that has had me most active in regards to working out scenes and generating ideas has been "Rowan of the Wood' by Christine and Ethan Rose. You can

 

find it right here on Barnes and Noble. Some of the scenes might have you laughing out loud because it blends humour with the sadness and adventure.

 

I agree with Everyman on many of your interests, but couldn't message you privately. Here is the site for Rowan : www.RowanoftheWood.com.

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi! I'm new at this posting things.  I signed up with B&N awhile back and then life swallowed me up!  I think the explorers are a great group from the posts I've read. I've been looking for people to talk about books.  I'm so glad to be here.  I find that i am often reading different books and authors from what people I know are reading. I'm happy to find sucha varied interest here.

Re: pedophiles

I don't know if anyone knows this,(I am sure someone does), that you can look up in your computer and put in your neighborhood and it will show you where all pedophiles live in your area and their names etc. I can't remember the site but I am sure you could find it on google. When my kids were little I checked it out and was shocked to see that there were 2 and we lived in a nice area.

Warm Greetings to All

Hi Everyone:

Re: Introduce yourself

Hello all,

Like most here I am an avid reader, as well as a lover of music, and a teacher.  I'm a 25 year-old North Carolinian and whenever there is a spot of free time in my schedule I pull out a book.  There probably isn't enough time in this life to read all that I wish to read, but I will certainly try!

 

Anywho, I'm looking forward to exploring new books and chatting with everyone!

Re: Introduce yourself

Hello everyone, Hoping that everyone is hanging tight on the economic woes.  We have to trust that everything is being done so that corrections are made in order to improve each of our situations. 

 

This was also what we wanted to emphasize ever since in our business model at Affordable Books. Just like any book enthusiast, we like reading, learning and concern on the plight of other people.

 

On this day and age, this is about people and alliances towards people that you have high regards.  Even on forums and book clubs over the years, we were always very selective in being pro-active.  Fortunately, in our past endeavors we have worked together with Barnes and Noble which is why we have a great respect for them and their supporters.

 

Have a great day and checkout our self-publish book with our publisher at::smileyhappy:

Best Selling Author - Alex Esguerra is the founder of ADLE Intrnational. Some os his books are "How do you integrate success in a small business" and " Memories of an APEC Young Entrepreneur Leader".
