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: Welcome to the Community Room!

@jannypan,

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're looking for.  The First Look group for Joanna Smith Rakoff's

A Fortunate Age 

 took place over two years ago.  Unfortunately, the First Look program has been disbanded but check out the other genre groups to see what everyone is currently reading.

Thanks, Pepper,  I have my copies of both Friday Mornings at Nine and The Collectibles  and am looking forward to March 7 very eagerly.  No fun not being part of the BN discussions! 

 

Am reading Little Bee for another book discussion and am reserving my opinion until I finish it.  In retrospect I'm sure I will find it very interesting.  Just some parts are too passively written.

 

I'm sure we'll talk next week.

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

Hi,

 

I'm Phil Chen and am new to the B&N Community.  I hope to become an active member as the days go on.  My background is as eclectic as can be.  I have been a ocean research engineer, an environmental engineer, a trial attorney, a corporate executive, and an investment banker. In fact one of my mentors once said, "Chen, it isn't that you can't hold down a job; you can't even hold down a career."

 

In 2007, I decided to try cartooning. I will be contributing some of my cartoons to hopefully put a smile on a few faces once in a while.  My first few can be found here.

 

I am also a first time author and, as you can see below, I have also figured out how to add images to the signature line.  If you are interested in doing the same, send me a Private Message and I will try to do one for you as well.  I caution you that I have had mixed success with the few that I have done so far. 

 

Phil
