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.

Center Stage 2009: The Authors Ahead

It's tough to believe that another year is nearly finished (some of us, cough cough, haven't even finished our holiday shopping yet), but the good thing about one year ending is that another is about to begin. Here at Center Stage, you know what that means...more authors logging on to answer your questions!

 

We've got wonderful line-up for the first half of the year. We're kicking things off in 2009 with Kay Hooper, and you've already seen that we also have Jayne Ann Krentz, Julie Garwood, and Bernard Cornwell.

 

Coming soon will be Adriana Trigiani (I've interviewed her a couple of times, but there is no way to run out of questions for the dynamic author of the Big Stone Gap series!), Christopher Moore (no time like Christmas Present to read Lamb), the incredibly smart and glamorous Laura Lippman, and one of my all-time favorite authors to interview, David Baldacci.

 

We're always happy to hear which author or authors you're most excited about, as well as those you'd be interested in for future Center Stage discussions, so please post your comments here about that.

 

Happy, happy holidays to all -- and happy holiday reading, too!
