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: You Know You're Addicted to Books When ...

It doesn't matter where I go my Noon is always with me. I have to admit I will change what purse I have just to fit my Nook:smileyvery-happy:! I will even make my husband drive so I can finish what I'm reading. Even if the ride is only ten minutes to the store!!! Or my family asks me to do something, I'll say give me a minute I have to finish this chapter. Their response "  Wright your minute is can last all day ". What can I say when the book is good you can't put it down. There's been times I stayed up all night just to finish the book because I had to know how it ended. Sure I was tired the next day, but hey it could be worse. At least I think so. Or do they have a twelve step program out there for book alcoholic's like us:smileyvery-happy:!

Can anyone help? I think my fingers got glued to my NOOK and I can't seem to put it down!1! :smileyhappy:-
Although it's a good conversation piece when out in public!!

When you are glad that no one can meet you for lunch or dinner so you have all that extra time to read while you eat.

 

When you take a book to your son's sporting events and read during time outs, 1/2 time, and even slip in a sentence or 2 when is out of the game.

 

When you read during commercials so you can also keep up with your favorite TV shows.
