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.

Reading for fun, what should I read next? If i like uncle tom's cabin

I have been reading Uncle tom's cabin and really enjoy it. I'm getting close to the end and need to choose another book. Please tell me what you think I should read next.

 

I'm just reading for fun.

I'm sorry that I can not remember the authors name. But the man who wrote the Brer Rabbit tales, also has excellent slave folk tales. I treasured a book my uncle gave me that had the Brer on one side and you flipped it for the folk tales.

Booker T. Washington's autobiography, Up from Slavery, is a wonderful story.
