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.

Looking for "Nook Friends"

[ Edited ]

Hello All!


I just bought a Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight, and I am interested in making the best of my new purchase.


So, I'd like to add some friends for reading suggestions/potential lending buddies for books.


Although I am open to any genre, I tend to gravitate towards:


1) Mystical/Magical (ex. Harry Potter)


2) Paranormal/Magical Romance (ex. The Nine Lives of Chloe King)


3) Magic + Animals (Tamora Pierce's The Immortals Quartet)


4) Series centered around horses (I haven't found a good equestrian-based novel for young adults at the moment)


4) Mysteries/Psychological Thrillers


5) Books dealing with Japanese culture (I'm studying to be an anthropologist, what can I say? :smileytongue: )


If anyone would like to add me, my e-mail address is


Looking forward to reading alongside some good people!

Re: Looking for "Nook Friends"

I can suggest some books based upon horses. One of the best known is Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. There is also a series of 3 books that incorporate the fox hunting lifestyle with murder mysteries. This is the Hunt Country Suspense Series by Jan Neuharth. Hope that these suggestions help.
