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: What book are you reading? 2009 edition

I am re-reading 1984 by George Orwell for personal reasons.  I did a book report on it in the 9th grade and want to see how my reaction to his work may have changed now that I am a media blitzed adult.  So far I am loving the book.  Still creeped out by how possible brainwashing the masses can be.

Re: What book are you reading? 2009 edition

Well, I haven't read Vineland, though I've been meaning to for a while.  Against the Day is great, it takes place in an alternate late 19th century/early 20th century - so far in the midwest but I suspect the story will go other places, and he has a lot of fun with the language of that era.  There is a lot of history-of-science stuff in there which is a bit past me but Wikipedia helps with that :smileywink:

Vineland is very 60's,70's..I can't have too many distractions when I do read it,because it is all over the place,so my attention span must really be focused..Vtc..Susan
