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 bookish blogs do you read?

I'm new here, but you have listed several of my faves (Like Misfit Salon)

 

I didn't see a newish blog I've enjoyed it's Blog With Bite It's also a fun blog and a lot of people that are fun to be around!

 

There is also my blog, which is still new, and I'm learning and having fun. That's not too egocentric is it? :smileyhappy:

I'll have to check out a few I haven't see and was listed here. Thanks!

Just be glad your blog can even be linked to at all without explicitly violating the B&N user agreement or causing the servers to self-immolate as a suicidal but utilitarian gesture of societal preservation.

Re: What bookish blogs do you read?

Right now, I have to say the blog of interest for me has been Unbound.  In particular, I read the latest on things with the nook and what bloggers are saying (or slinging).  Up until now, it's mostly been about theories on why the nook is late and those venting due to their slipped delivery date.  It will be interesting to see feedback now that the nooks are arriving.

Re: What bookish blogs do you read?

Aw, thanks so much for the mention Deb! I'm not a former B&N member though. I just don't get here nearly as often as I did in the past 4 years because I have a terrible time signing in now!I have dial-up at home and it's such a pain. I'm hoping to get back to it more though. This is such a great community and I started here first before I branched out into blogging. That's an awesome community too! There have been many terrifc blogs mentioned here and they really deserve the spotlight. Your blog is always a favorite!!

Re: What bookish blogs do you read?

Since it's been a while since I first answered this question I thought I would share some of the new discoveries I've made since then.

Re: What bookish blogs do you read?

I'm an avid nook user, so it shouldn't be any surprise that I'm active on the MobileRead forums.  Good information there on the various ereaders, and it is where the creator of the Caliber software hangs out and takes comments/suggestions.

 

I'm also an avid science fiction fan, so it also shouldn't be surprising that I hang out at the Baen bar.  The bar is great in that most of the Baen authors also hang out there, and several of the more literary inclined posters have graduated from Fans to Authors through their interactions at the Bar. (John Ringo is an example of this.)  I really like Baen as a publisher.  Further, Baen often releases Advanced Reader Copies of its new novels to its members. It is kinda cool getting a couple months head-start on everyone on the newest Honor Harrington novel. (Also it works as distributed editing. If you spot a problem, you can submit it and get it corrected before it is printed.)

Re: What bookish blogs do you read?

I've co-created a blog (Once Upon a Chapter) with a good friend. We focus mainly on reviewing romances. We currently have a giveaway going of Kaki Warner's Pieces of Sky and Open Country if anyone is interested. The site is http://www.onceuponachapter.com

 

Hope this isn't too egotistical but we're trying to get our name out there.

 

Thanks!

Stephanie
