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.

Here for Seized? Introduce yourself!

We've got a lot of new people in this board due to the Seized! Sneak Peek program we're doing in here, it think it'd be good to have a place for everyone to introduce themselves.

 

So say hi and tell us a little bit about yourself!

Re: Here for Seized? Introduce yourself!

Hi everyone! I'm April from Nebraska and I live with my husband and my seven month old beagle, Barney. UPS just delivered my book this morning. It looks really good and I can't wait to start reading. I have a few other books to finish first, but I'll get them read quick so I can start on this one. I'm so excited I got into this sneak peek! It looks like it will be a great book to discuss with everyone. See you all in March!

Re: Here for Seized? Introduce yourself!

Hi! I'm Katie from Charlottesville, VA. I usually spend most of my time reading fiction; these days most of my non-fiction is limited to literary criticism (and the occasional history book for fun. I read and enjoyed

American Lion  this winter). I'm really looking forward to Seized, though!

Re: Here for Seized? Introduce yourself!

I'm Danelle from S. Texas.  I just got the book today.  Super excited. I'm still reading Before I Fall so my Dad took Seized from me for the time being. Kinda difficult to find this board.  Is there a schedule?  When do we start the discussion?

lilk,  I had seen your screen name and the Hawaii and was thinking this might be my big lil sis Kim over in Kona on the big island when I saw lilk.  I'm tall, she's short..she signs, your lil sis.  LOL!

 

Anywhoo,

I am Lisa from Atlanta, GA!  I love to read all sorts of stuff from non-fiction to fiction.  I am a wife and mother of one son and two dogs.  Sadie is my golden retriever.

 

I was so excited to see what this book was about.  I love the sea and tales of it.  I was raised deep-sea fishing.  Nothing like what's going on in this book by the way. We only had a 24 1/2 foot cabin cruiser.   My ex was a Captain of a Shrimp boat from a long family of shrimpers that shrimped from Key West to Texas and back again.

 

I have started the book and find it interesting so far!

Re: Here for Seized? Introduce yourself!

Aloha, I'm mia from the Big Island of Hawaii and I've started reading "Seized."  I'm not a big fan of pirate stories but am intrigued by this autobiography.  My 9 year old son keeps trying to grab the book as this is obviously his kind of topic but I may just have to reword the story as I go along reading.  I started reading this on the beach, as my kids and I went hiking into yet unknown territory for us, so it is all an exciting ambiance to be in at this moment.

Re: Here for Seized? Introduce yourself!

Hi! This is my first sneak peek, but I have done many First looks.  I am a 99% fiction reader, but this book sounds awesome.  Also I have a husband whose dream is for us to retire on a boat!!  I thought what a fun way to find out more about boats.  Plus being a retired attorney, I am interested in current events and am interested in what people have to say about those issues.  Look forward to the discussion!
