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.

I'm reading The Confessions by St. Augustine.  I love autobiographies and this is the first.  I find it fascinating.  It combines Plato, with the bible and invents what becomes  church doctrine.

I have just finished reading TheWitch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho.And I read three cups of tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. Both were great reads and now I am reading Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand. That is hitting the right spot also.

Currently reading Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. I'm half way throught the book and it's finally captured my attention. I'm hoping the last half of the book makes up for the first half.

Soooo I'm reading the book Wild Card by Lora Leigh. And there are a lot of sex scenes, like A LOT. But i suppose you expect that in Lora Leigh novels. But this book has a great story line too. If you want to read it though I'd suggest you read her TEMPTING SEALS series first (Honk If You Love Real Men, Dangerous Games, Real Men Do It Better, HIDDEN AGENDAS!, Killer Secrets, and  Rescue Me) As you can see i love Hidden Agendas. BUt read it!

Have picked up Soul by Tobsha Learner. Not my normal type of read and I'm not quite sure yet if I will stick with it.
