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.

Eek! That's a blond moment but so harmless. What if you're a brown haired girl with lots of blond highlights? Does that qualify me to be smart, sexy and have an excuse for my ditzy moments? That sounds good to me! :smileywink: Just joking about the "dumb blond" everyone. Girl power all the way!

FYI - my spellcheck keeps saying that "blonde" is wrong and "blond" is correct. I decided to look it up and the dictionary gave one spelling and definition as:
blond - someone having blonde hair.

Huh?!?




ROFL ... we all should be able to laugh at ourselves. Can be quite entertaining. LOL :smileywink:

I thought blonde was blonde. Unless you're on vacation in Mexico ... than, as I'm affectionally teased by my friends, poco loco blond-eeee. :smileyvery-happy: Hey, I get free drinks! :smileyhappy:

Wrightly, if you're a brown haired girl with lots of blond highlights, you should be smart, sexy and have and have some ditzy moments ... not alot, because you're are brown haired. LOL JK :smileywink:


ROFL, ok wrighty, you gave me my big laugh for the day: Blond - someone having blonde hair. LOLOL too funny. Heck look, half the time in here, i dont punctuate, i dont spell things just right, i may even leave out a word but the world seems to still be spinning ok here lol. I figure as long as you guys can understand what I mean, I am not going to slow down the way i type or check all the spellings. You just get my online, friend to friend short hand stuff. If i say or type something you dont understand, then let me know lol, just type, huh?? lol after all, i may be having a "Blond" moment LOLOL.

Off topic to Debbie re: blonde/blond

Debbie,

As I understand it, blonde is for women, and blond is for men. Let me try Google's spell check on it- you're right, it doesn't like "blonde" - harrumph!

Re: EARlY CHAPTERS THROUGH 5 FIRST IMPRESSIONS LIZ

I do agree that Liz was exactly what Miriam and Kevin needed to "keep the carpet of the story rolling out," and I think Miriam and Kevin were exactly what Liz needed. When these kinds of things happen it reinforces my opinion that the Lord has a sense of humor!

Ha ha, Kiakar! Know alot of "husband runarounds?" I went to a bar with a co-worker when I was in college. She was much older. The bar turned out to be her favorite hangout. Most of the men there that talked to me had taken their wedding bands off. :smileyindifferent: But ... hehehehe ... you could see the suntan line! LOL what a place! :smileywink:


Married men, even the ones who dont fool around, are such flirts lol.




yea, you are right about that. God must be up there telling them they are a gift for the world to be a better place and they think he said A gift to women to enjoy. Don't you think?


I think God created women second so we could give them darn car directions!




Yes, Viv, you are ever so brilliant!
