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.

If it were possible to successfully transplant our brain into say a rabbit, a mouse, or a duck

"From my perspective, all life-matter is identical regardless of the size or complexity of the species. What distinguishes one species from another is not their life-matter, but rather, the size or complexity of the physical body their life-matter happens to reside in.

 

As such, and in theory, if it were possible to successfully transplant our brain into say a rabbit, a mouse, or a duck, then their behavior would become similar to that of humans. It would resemble the behavior of such animated cartoon characters as Bugs Bunny, Speedy Gonzales, and Daffy Duck. By the same token, if it was possible to transplant a rabbit’s brain into a human, the human would behave like a rabbit."

 

Yet another quote from my book.
