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.

Ryan - great to meet another book lover! I moderate Mystery; stop by sometime. We're fairly female-driven this month, but next month Michael Palmer and Jonathan Kellerman will be joining us.

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

Hello everyone,

 

Does anyone know when the FIrst Look book for March will come out?   I've been looking all over this site and can't find an announcement or announcement date?  I'm anxious about getting the next book.  All the First Look's have been FABULOUS.  Keep me posted.  Have a wonderful day!

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

Just finished reading The Kitchen House   - Kathleen Grissom's debut novel.  An excellent read. This was one of those books you hate to finish - just because it's so good!  The characters stay with you long after the last sentence is read.  Check it out!

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

If anyone "sees" an announcement for the next First Look or Sneak Peak book would they be kind and post that information to the Community Room....

Thank you in advance for you kindness.

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

I am in the Grand Rapids area too and have loved being on here.  I hope you find a good book club.  I am mostly interested in fiction/fantasy.  There is a great forum on that.
