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.

London Chic Lit

Greetings and Salutations to all :smileyvery-happy:
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for Chic Lit books that are based in Europe?
I am just getting into Sophie Kinsella and already love Jane Green.
Please let me know your thoughts

A favorite chick lit of mine is Bridget Jone's Diary.
"She went from room to room, floor to floor, stack to stack, reveling in books, books, books. She loved books. She loved them with her senses and her intellect." From Joy In The Morning, by Betty Smith

Hi,
Others have mentioned Helen Fielding (of Bridget Jones fame). There's also Maggie Alderson, Hester Browne, and Carole Mathews, to name a few.
Have fun!

Re: London Chic Lit

Katie Fforde is an author I like -  a few of her books based in England  are Stately Pursuits, Artistic license and Restoring Grace.
Enjoy!
