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.

Re: Introduce Yourselves!

Hey y'all from an SC girl! (Actually, I lived outside Chicago until 12 years ago, but SC has always been in my heart--we vacationed in NMB every year.) I LOVE Ms. Frank's books--they are such a pleasure to read. My Swiss hubby and I had a beach wedding on Isle of Palms, and it is truly my favorite place, with Sullivan's Island a close second! If you haven't been to SC, y'all need to come on down! :-)

We're reading Land of Mango Sunsets for my book club tomorrow night, and I stumbled upon this board when I was looking for Q&A for our group. I'm a compulsive reader, and my hubby and kids think I'm a little obsessed with books. They are right! I used to work in publishing a million years ago, and now I read at least a book or two per week. It's a pleasure to meet you all, and I look forward to the discussions.

Mimi and Dot's next book

Mimi--

Can you get Dot to put some more of your recipes in her next book? That was so neat--to read about the food and then, voila, there was the recipe in the back.

LOL at your husband's breakfast.

Later--

Hi, I'm Josephine from Brooklyn, NY, USA. I saw this book cover and fell in love.
I purchased the book a few days ago. Wow!

I'm a breast cancer survivor, just made 3 1/2 years and love to plunge into novels that make me smile, (which so far this has been true for this novel).

Hi there purpleroses. Love your name. Makes me think of the lavendar/violet colored roses that are very very hard to come by. I read a long time ago that Elizabeth Taylor always had them in her dressing room because her eyes were a lavender/violet color, not blue and that the film never really could catch the color of her eyes but that from a very very young age (too young) grown men would be pulled in by her eyes, they are so beautiful, i can believe it. I used to look for lavender roses all the time after that and never saw one, but was told you could special order them lol. WTG on your 3 1/2 years! Enjoy your reading :smileywink:

Re: Introduce Yourselves!

Hi Dot and everyone....I am a little late getting here as I have just returned from a whirlwind, jampacked week in Washington DC. I am sitting at Litchfield Beach ready for some relaxation. I was a part of the discussion group last year and definitely looking forward to all the wonderful discussions.:smileyhappy:

Welcome Jospehine! One of the things I do with my book earnings is support the National Breast Cancer Coalition. I have lost two friends on my block to breast cnacer and three others are survivors. I have had tumors myself but oddly they disappeared when I quit smoking and drinking coffee. I am thrilled you are enjoying Mango - I'm in NJ! The book cover is crazy, isn't it?

Hi Everyone! This is a great day at the beach---but too hot to traspe down there just yet....What ya'll doing today? Reading, "Land of Mango Sunsets"? That would make Dottie pretty happy!!!! Me too! -I made two Mimi pound cakes this AM-One for the freezer-the other for Scott. Yeah, he's the #1 husband--Ya know, he ACTUALLY LIKES pound cake better than PPT's! LOL (That's what we call his Pop Tarts) -----Now, I just may eat some too, but don't tell! --- Talked with Dottie last PM and she and her family were having a "cooking marathon" in their kitchen. She's a great cook!
