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.

Well now I could find the announcements for Center Stage 6 weeks in advance, not always, but at least the upcoming month ahead.


I saw it problem mainly with the levels of author participation. Some did great, some just blew off thanks for reading me caveats.


Me personally I always checked it out. Found it a good look into authors personalities.Though no I didn't always comment, it was often good reading.


And for those who just did understand what was going on. Well I've been noticing a general "no idea what's going on" newbie cluster and a lack of introduction for them. The set up for a new user, well it sucks. A total lack of hey here's how to start, navigate, general behavior rules guidelines. That should be handed to a new user before they even get to browse. (shrug)



I totally agree.
