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.

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: Happy St. Patrick's day!!!

I know a little trivia.

 

St. Patrick was born a Britt but kidnapped and taken to Ireland. He eventually got back to Britain but went back to Ireland.

 

The official color of St. Patrick was blue, not green.

Re: Happy St. Patrick's day!!!

There are 2 letters written in Latin that are generally accepted as written by st. Pat. Does anyone know his real name? Like, before he was Patrick? Never knew his color was blue, cool!

For lots of speculation, try his Wikipedia entry:  St. Patrick.
