Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Gay Marraige

[ Edited ]
Obama's position on gay marriage has lately been in the news, which usually covers party politics and state resolutions like the one North Carolina, vis-a-vis same sex marraige. But is there a cost to same-sex marriage? I googled and found a few reports, but nothing substantial. It seemed kind of like the education nightmare I recently addressed in the classics board in "This Side of Paradise" and that is, you should be able to assign a dollar amount (i.e. salary earnings) to a grade-point average or a grade you recieve in school. There might be real costs to grades or same-sex marraiges that people are concerned about, but go unmentioned- but it's kind of a taboo subject. Chad
