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: Stephanie & started reading

Oh Stephanie:

I finished the book about 3 days after it was released! :smileyhappy:

Now I always insisted that Sullivan's Island was Dot's best, best, best book and that nothing could beat it. I'm eating crow right now. Mango Sunset is divine. Just moved right into my soul. Thank you Dot!

I know...the life of a school teacher is great right now....no responsibilites, no stress, etc. However this is just recovery time from the grind of teaching school. I teach 8th Grade SC History and I love my job and my babies but it sure does help to have some time to decompress from the school year.

I saw Dot during the first week of her book tour while I was on Spring Break...Needless to say I had just returned the week before from taking about 240 students to Charletson to get a first hand taste of history. It was great fun but I was definitely glad to have Spring Break.

I only taught school part time and I LIVED for vacations! I loved the kids but you really do need time to decompress (that was a great word choice) so you can do it all over again. I think teachers would burn out so fast if they didn't have summers off.

Re: Introduce Yourselves!

I must admit.. my husband does all the cooking! Well, the majority of it. I get to stir! He loves to cook and is a complete control freak in the kitchen! I hate cooking! If it were up to me, I'd eat pizza everynight and salads on the weekends :smileywink:!! Even though I watch all the cooking shows and see how I can make anything in 30 minutes (ha!) it usually takes me 2 hours to do it. I love to bake, though... Baking and cooking are two different things!

That's exactly the same way at our house!! My husband loves to cook and try new things and is an absolute control freak in the kitchen. I just stay out of his way. He makes dinner every night now and has for years. He loves the food network. I don't care that much about food and would have the same things over and over. Pizza is a big favorite. Baking is my thing too. It's also something I enjoy eating, unfortunately. With teenagers in the house there's never much left for me, fortunately, I guess. As long as I get some of it I'm happy!

Doing great!! How are you? I need to send you a copy of the picture we took. Is there an email address that would be good? I would love it if there was a way to work out you coming to my school next year and speaking to my students about SC History and writing.

Yes, it is! I have watched those shows constantly with my daughter for the last week since she was here with me. ha. but the shows are fun in a way. I have never cooked alot since my kids left home and that has been years ago. It never was a hobby for me only a chore.
