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.

Close reading book club in Seattle - but online also

http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Close-R...

This is a "close reading" book club. It will utilize a different format than most clubs. Most book clubs discuss a book in one session. There are a small number of "close reading" meetups around, in which members discuss a book over a large number of sessions. I am not starting the latter type of group, because I recognize that it will be hard to find time to attend, say, a dozen meetups about a single book. So the format of this meetup will be a COMBINATION of online message board discussion, perhaps chapter by chapter, with face-to-face meetups at several points. This should combine the best of both worlds - it should not require attending a large number of meetups, and at the same time it will allow for some of advantages of in person discussion compared to online only discussion. People from outside the Seattle area are welcome to join and participate in the online discussions without attending any of the meetings. The books we will discuss are open to member nominations.
