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.

party politics

I have to care about what either party says to some degree- you're getting, for the most part, either democrat or republican on the ballot. And some voters register as either democrat or republican just to have a vote in the primaries. Both parties are able to dominate politics by riding the "middle line" in order to gain the a larger share of the votes. But when you ride the midde, it tends to exclude the extremes that might say "no pipeline", or "no taxes", or "no nukes". etc. etc. That is , there were always those "extremist positions" that always get squashed by the major parties. If the two extremes (i.e. extreme right and extreme left) had been able to coalesce and form a major third partty, then "the people" might have been better served. RIght?
