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.

Recommendation : 'City of Laughter'

'City of Laughter : Sex and Satire in the Eighteenth Century'by Vic Gatrell. I heard a review of this book on the radio yesterday and it struck me that American lovers of British classics would like this scholarly history of sex and satire in 18C London. It sounded a bit bawdy but is an unusual take on these times because it is based not on literature but on cartoons and prints of the time. It is quite expensive but would make a a good pressie to put on your Xmas/Birthday list:smileyhappy::-,,1933170,00.html

(I hope you can pick the Guardian link up - I often find it doesn't work. If so, just Google for the title and the link will come up.)
