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. On May 1, we’re saying 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: Welcome!

I am really looking forward to this opportunity. This (online bookclubs) will be a first experience for me. Very very seldom will you ever catch me without some type of reading material. I love new authors and giving them a try and maybe finding a new favorite to add. I sure hope I make it before the cut off of supplied books.

An excited reader!

Re: Welcome!

Congratulations, Lauren, for being BN's inaugural novelist for this forum.
And congratulations to the rest of us for the opportunity to read this much-buzzed-about work before it's published to the wider world! I can't wait!

What a pleasure to read something about my native NY. I've been to Cooperstown and just coming off of State Fair week, I'm homesick also.

Congratulations on this book and I hope to discuss the story in depth with other readers here.

I an greatly looking forward to reading your book. I am really honored to be part of First Look; my guess is this is going to be very successful for new authors and for B&N. What a wonderful thing that your book is the first to be part of First Look!

Re: Welcome!

I am a huge Bradbury and Stephen King fan. I always am thrilled when King reads a book and it excites him. I know it must be good! I can't wait to get started.

Re: Welcome!

I just woke up to the coolest Barnes & Noble email (checked late last night and it wasn't there), but it's closed !?!
I'm on the West Coast right now so maybe that was a factor.
Bummer!
