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.

What happened to the Sneak Peaks?  Haven't seen any announcements about them for a few months now,

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

What's all this about the moderators being changed in the book clubs? Why is this being done?

I've just recently joined the Harry Potter and Mystery Book Clubs, and it is apparent that the moderators in those two rooms are doing a great job. I see that some clubs are being dropped and others revamped. It seems a bit, well, arbitrary, and it would be thoughtful if the administrator would explain why there is a need for all the upheaval, and why the rooms that are successfully active are also changing the moderators. Explanation,  please!

Best Job Search website

Hi Friends!

I am Tanweer and i told you a website for looking a better job.


Go to and search an any type of jobs. It is the website for search a job and it is taking you directly to the job source. Its eliminates the commercial job-board middleman by taking you directly to the job source.


This website is great for people who's want to contact directly to employers. I like using to look for jobs because it has jobs only from employer websites and far more jobs than you will find on other job boards. Each job post of this website will typically have a smaller pool of applicants. This means you can dramatically increase your chances of getting hired.


So, go to

Re: I need some help.

Hi, 'newest member in town'...:smileyhappy: 

I was passing by this way,

and saw you standing on the street corner,

wondering which way to go,

so I thought I'd lend you a hand, if I may?


As you have noticed, we have many boards and blogs, and whatever your heart desires to read and participate in, and lots of people who are old members, here to help you, too.  I've been around for a hundred years, so that may say something....probably senility is one thing....


Anyway, you can choose which board suits your needs.  We have a Fiction board that is a nice place to get to know a lot of book lovers, just pick a spot and jump right in.  There is usually a place on each board to introduce yourself, and you can take the leap and introduce yourself in all of these boards, if you have the time to do that!  We usually start book discussion on the first of each month.  You might have seen the home page for books, which gives you links to find everything that is currently in progress.  Don't be afraid, we won't bite newbies.....well.....not to hard, anyway.  Ha!


Tell us a little about yourself....your name if you want to go by it.  It's not necessary, but it does give a warm and fuzzy feeling, especially after you've been here awhile, and gotten to know some of us.  I'm on the Kingdom of Wordsmithonia (plug, plug), and personally invite you there....if you like words, or like to write, or just play....we try to be entertaining, although at this time, we aren't discussing books...I just post reviews, if anyone is interested in doing that, and talking about them, we can do that too....


This time of year people are planning vacations, and not as busy, here, as usual....the mystery board is always hoping, though,....But Becke, the moderator, sleeps in front of her computer, and you may see her online, day and night!.... :smileyvery-happy:  If you see a book you'd like to talk about on any genre, any board, drop the moderator a note. Or mention it in their Community Room.


Do you know how to use the Private Message program (PM)?  The little white envelope on the top of your page?  


Anything you need help with, just post it here, or on a board, or privately....You can click on anyone's name, and can send a message to that person from that page.  Administrators are here to help, also.  What kind of books do you like to read?  What's your interests in life?  Tell us....and we'll try to direct you if you want us to.  Glad you've come to join our little community!


Happy Reading!

Kathy S.

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

Please forgive me for hitting the reply button but it was the only way I could find to get on the board.


A brief description of me.  Hmm, I love reading of course, always have.  To me reading is the best exercise for the brain and a great source for learning.  It allows one to develop their own thoughts and opinions rather than accepting those of others claiming to be in the know.  And that empowers an individual to think and reason for oneself.

Reading is the pathway for knowledge

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

I didn't know this community room was here.  I am so excited.  I am fairly new and am excited to hear about more and more books!
