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.

Hi My Friend! I have been snuggling up with Mellie, Josie, Harrison, Kevin & all the
rest of the gang. It has been so much fun, I've laughed and I've cried and I have
at time felt like you are in the room with me! Your sense of humor,vivid descriptions and imparted wisdom is sooo Dottie. Thank you and congratulations on another winner.

Dot, you're killing me! Still mooning over H.F?....he's mine! Nice meeting your friend, Kaffee....I'm minus zero energy at the moment, so I'm no help, but maybe she could pass a few currents in my direction, too, ya think?! Hope you can get together!

Re: XXOX Mango Sunset

Well, I was up way before my usual this morning because I was determined to finish the book so I could pass it along to a friend who left for Europe today. It
will be perfect for her to make the travel fly by. Dottie, I really loved all the
characters in Mango. They all came alive for me, especially Mellie. I found
it incredibly touching the way you wrote about Josie's illness and how it
affected her daugther. It was beautiful how you described the feelings that
go along with those events. I was completely knocked out by the explanation
of how Josie looked at her as if she were taking pictures to be able to show
to those on the other side. I too have seen that look but never saw it written
about or explained so dearly. And yes,Judith IS a fluzzy for sure and Charles
really fouled up and got his in the end. I loved it. And then there is Harrison...
is that what they call fantasy??? if so I'm gonna fantasize away.(It was during the
"goat chase" that I really fell for Harrison)
About that visit. I can't think of a better idea. When will you be in SC? I know
we can work something out. I need to hear that wonderful laugh of yours. we deserve
some girlfriend time after so long!
