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: Families, Children, & Book Events

Great idea, Connie!

 

In my store (Barnes & Noble Neshaminy Mall, Bensalem), we are having a Big Bug Show on Saturday October 17th. We had one several months ago, and the kids loved it. We have a guest who brings out dozens of six (and eight) -legged creatures and tells us all about them...their names, where they live, if they're poisonous, etc. Plus kids have a chance to buy books about their favorites. It's creepy crawly fun!

 

And this Monday, we're going to be having Diary of a Wimpy Kid release parties...one at 11am, then one in the evening for kids who have to go to school on Columbus Day. There will be prizes and giveaways and lots of fun!

Thanks, Melissa!  How did the Diary of a Wimpy Kid release party go?  I've been hearing there was a lot of anticipation for that book.

Re: Families, Children, & Book Events

By popular demand we're going to be having another event on Saturday! Kids have definitely been going crazy for this (some adults, too; I never finished the third book, but will definitely get to it in the near future.).
