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.

I'm Dreaming Of A Black Christmas

[ Edited ]

I've read books by these three stand-up comedians:Lewis Black,Bill Cosby and Kevin Nealon.  I own a number of Bill Cosby's books,including his newest ones,Cosbyology and I Am What I Ate...and I'm frightened!!! I'd say that Bill Cosby's sense of humor is funny,and his writing is original and makes sense. I've also read Kevin Nealon's  first book,"Yes,you're pregnant,but what about me?" I'd say his sense of humor is irrelevant and is neither very funny,nor very original  and it doesn't make any sense either. Lewis Black's sense of humor is politically irreverent. He's the only stand-up comedian whose sense of humor and writing make sense and is very funny and very original. I've read all three of his books,Me Of Little Faith,Nothing's Sacred and my favorite,I'm Dreaming Of A Black Christmas,where he concludes that Christmas isn't a holiday,it's an emotional tsunami.
