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. On May 1, we’re saying 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.

Lovely Bones is a very beautiful, uplifting book. Haven't read the other. I jusst finished The Subtle Knife and am now on to a mystery Scots on the Rocks, by Mary Daheim. I am new to her, but it sounded like a fun read. Of course, I read many other books as well, but the current one is above. The others are read in segments and may takes weeks, even months to finish, certainly months. LOL

I just started it a couple of days ago. I'm really enjoying the story!

I just finished "Kite Runner" - another great one, and "The House at Riverton".

Next on my list, after "Water for Elephants" is "Maggie A Girl of the Streets" by Stephen Crane and "The Second Tree from the Corner" by E.B. White. Mixed into that is Ulysses by James Joyce... but I suspect this one will take me a long time to get through. Edited to add: Oh Yeah, and I'm reading "Love in the time of Cholera"

Oh I LOVE RICHARD MATHESON! Kourt, when you are done reading "I Am Legend" would you mind if we discussed it? I had a discussion with a friend and I would like to know your views on it!
