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.

Re: Show off your My B&N profile!

Your avatar selection of nice options men is really quite limited.  There are several nice avatars of women reading, but only one of a man reading and he is a total dork with goggles.  Yuck!  Why can't we have a nice older man looking absorbed in a good book? 

 

Most of the male avatars are really quite gruesome.  Are these really the way you want B&N readers to see themselves?????

That "total dork" you are referring to is the avatar used by our very own Maria!  

 

In any case if you find the male avatars too gruesome but think the female ones are nice, you are more than welcome to use a female avatar.  

 

We'll have some more avatars in the future - but I can't say at this point what they'll look like or when we'll get them.

 

Also, what's wrong with this guy?  He seems pretty nice:

 

Nice Old Man

I continue to refine  my profile on the new "My B&N". I am hoping there will be a place to list audiobooks separate from music or favorites lists.

It still seems so many of the profiles are set to "private".

:smileyvery-happy:  I saw them live on their reunion tour last year, too!!!  That's the third time I've seen them live.  Unfortunately, I never saw them with Peter Gabriel - that must have been amazing.

Yeah - what are they afraid of?  That we might find out what their favorite books are? :smileysurprised:

Re: Show off your My B&N profile!

Hi

I just found this page, before I could not figure out how people find other users.  I

 am still so confused about how to put other people's avatar pictures on my page.  I do just what it says-click on their name and click 'add to favorites'--except that comes up with adding the site to my favorites list. 

Anyone know how to navigate this?  Are there other places besides the message boards to find other avatars pages etc?  I am lost, and frankly it seems to require lots of time to find my way again--If anyone can help--I would appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Storrmy
