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.

Bossypants Discussion

Since memoir is not a listed genre, I'd like to consider it part of the, "Current Events and History" section and open up a discussion of it.  I'm only about halfway through, but I'd like to hear about your reactions to the book.

 

One idea I'd like to consider is whether or not Tina Fey can continue to write pieces like Bossypants.  I don't see this work as a static end.  I could see Tina Fey pursuing a Sedaris-like route to memoir writing. The chapters of Bossypants are quite independent from each other and that style of writing lends itself to some pretty entertaining memoirs.
