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.

TROPICAL NAME ANYONE?

Hey guys lol, I got a present for some of ya. It's not southern but your drinks are sounding pretty tropical so how about a tropical name to match? I got a few for you.
Vivian= Wiwiana pronounced Wee-vee-ah-na
Debbie= Kepi pronounced Kay-pee
Cindy= Kini pronounced Kee-nee (cute lol)
Linda= Linaka pronounced Lee-nah-kah
and Dot, I have yours in both forms:
Dorothea= Kolokea pronounced Koh-loh-kay-ah or
Dot= Koku pronounced Koh-koo, oh as in so, oo, as in spoon
You know I would hate to try to play Wheel of Fortune in Hawaii, more vowels than consenants! Vanna? Can I buy a vowel? yes, there are 12 a's. hmmmm, so I get to make money on the remaining 4 consenants huh, hmmm. LOL
