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: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

Maria_H again thank you for all your help. I think my pop up box came up this time. I am sorry it has taken me so long to catch on. I do have a memory problem. Anyway, I hope it goes through this time. I would enjoy reading this First Look choice. I have my fingers and toes crossed.:smileyhappy:

Re: Songs for the missing

Hi Maria! I hope to be apart of this one too! The last one I read the book, got pneumonia, gained a new son-in-law to be, gained some weight and my oldest daughter (at 27) found out she has ovarian cancer (which she has since has surgery and has been given a good outlook,) so as I said I hope to be one of the lucky ones to get to be a part of this one. It looks really good! Lisa G.

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

 I thought I followed the direction that Maria gave but after I signed in no " private message window" opened when I clicked. didn't find anyplace to add my info.
 
I checked my setting to allow a private message  and turned off my pop-up blocker.
 
Is there something else I should be doing. I'd really like to join this group. can anyone help me?
Thanks

Did you click on "click here" in Maria's initial post for this thread?

2. Submit your information
Now that you are signed into your account, click here. A pop up private message window will appear. (Two things you need to know to be sure that this window appears: Your private message must be enabled -- you can find that in My Personal Profile\Display & Privacy Settings and your computer should allow pop-ups.)

If the private message window still won't come up then right-click on "click here" and then select "open in new window" from the menu that appears.  That will open the messenger in a new window and then bypass any pop-blockers that might have escaped detection.  You'll want to right-click in the original post to get the messenger window to open.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Yeah I had tried the day before and the box was coming up blank, but today I was able to see the private message pop up and was able to enter my information.
 
I'm excited to be a part of this!

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

FYI - for those of you having trouble getting the PM popup - make sure you have your computer's popup blocker set to allow popups from the bookclub site of B&N.  I've got the Google toolbar, and had to change it to Ok for Popups on this site!
 
Cheers - Wendi

Now that you have verified your email, go to the message here.

In this message there is a link to click here. The Send To has already been filled out for you.

If this is not the problem, feel free to send me a private message -- also known as a PM.

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

Thanks for your interest in First Look! All spots have been filled!

We are no longer accepting enrollments.

Please remember that these ARCs are first come, first served, so to all those who submitted their information, but have not received a confirmation, please be patient while these last submissions are sorted through.

If you do not get into this one, stay tuned for the next and check out everything else we have to offer in the Book Club!

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

Hello Maria,
I tried to sign up for the Songs for the Missing and sent a message out.  I'm unsure who to address the message to and thought I sent the message to you.  Could you check the status for me?  Thanks.

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

Sorry, I cannot accept requests for free ARCs in my PM.

As I mentioned earlier, all spots have now been filled, and we are no longer accepting requests.

As you are all now aware, quantities on these free ARCs are limited and we are allotting the last of them on a first come first served basis.

That said, we still have a few more confirmations to send to those who submitted their requests just before we ran out this past weekend. And we hope to have these confirmations out by end of day tomorrow. So please be patient while we continue to process your requests.

Once all the confirmations have been sent out, I will post an alert to let you know.

Thanks everyone for hanging in there!

Maria
