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.

Thanks Cassie and Oregonhometown.

 

I grew up in Morecambe -- which is one of the places I'll be visiting on the northern part of the tour, and that was just a small drop down to the beach. Our house was on the sea front, so I went there a lot. Took a walk along the Whitby sands into town this morning, enjoying more of the Goths. Such great energy in town today, with everyone having a good time.

 

I do agree about modern slang in historicals. It can slip by -- some probably slips by me and my copy editor now and then -- but we need to be careful. It's so jarring to those of us who recognize it.
