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.

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

Diggory Venn, the Reddleman...excellent choice.

That's one of the two books I read in junior high and high school that I actually liked.  The Goo Earth was the other.

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

From The Stand, one of the greatest villian names of all time, Randall Flagg.

 

Also from the same novel how could you forget a character name when it's served up as such: "M-o-o-n that spells Tom Cullen."

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

This is a video game character but I will never forget Suikoden IV's Lino En Kluedes which one of those names that is just fun to say.

Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

AlmH, I like the names of the fraternal twins known as Vanilla and Chocolate.  It's easy to remember like Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

The name is not unique.  John Galt is the character. Atlas Shrugged is the book.
