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.

I know it's not ideal, but I do enjoy the typos.

That's BN's fault for disabling Firefox's as-you-type spellchecker in the reply window.  Your spellchecker is much more awkward to use.   Jon has mentioned enabling  Firefox's spell checker through the right click, but first you have to remember to do athat for every reply, and second, it doesn't work all the time. 

 

I want my Firefox spellchecker active again!

 

Until then, you're just going to get typos.  Your fault!

A long week?  It's only Wednesday.   Only the midpoint of the week.  If half the week is this bad, you need either a good shrink or a full bottle of scotch at hand!

Re: sara palin

So, do I take that to mean that you folks disabled spellcheck intentionally so you could have the fun of laughing at our  typos???

 

Should we make it a responsibility, when you're having a bad week, to make sure we offer a bunch of typos to cheer you up???

Everyman my firefox spell check works, right along with the blasted B&N version. I just click spell check, then go up to the red underlined word, right click and the firefox version pops up. Just have to go word by highlighted word now.

Mine is intermittant.  Sometimes it finds misspelled words, sometimes not.  And never if I forget to turn it on in each reply I make.    I just spelled intermittent incorrectly above, turned Check Spelling on in the right click menu, it found firefox misspelled both times above, underlined it in red, but didn't find intermittant.  Go figure.  brrrr (not underlined).  Underrlliine (not underlined).
