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.

So, in honor of this wildly popular and seemingly undying thread, here is an updated list of some of the most memorable posts over the last year! (And a big “thank you” to all of you who posted. I feel like a part of a tight-knit – and really eccentric – extended family!) Without further ado, this is what it means to truly be a science fiction/fantasy fan…

Since Dead Witch Walking was released in 2004, Kim Harrison has published seven more Rachel Morgan novels – the latest, Black Magic Sanction, was just released a few weeks ago – and a handful of related short stories in anthologies like Dates From Hell and Unbound. And in those few years, she has not only revolutionized paranormal fantasy but also transformed a relatively niche category into a mainstream juggernaut. That’s quite a statement, I know...

Explorations is back. I honestly never thought that I would ever say that again. When Paul Hochman called me up a few months back and hinted that Explorations might rise from the ashes once again, I almost cried.
