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.

Holiday Wish lists

  The boards have been a bit slow these days so I thought that I would ask if you or your children have any special books on your wish lists?  In our house books are always a wonderful gift.  My daughters interest is very broad so the range is adding to  her Judy Moody,Geronimo Stilton and Katie Kazoo collections to 39 clues and Percy Jackson series (currently her favorite reading material).  Dragon stories, reference books, Hugo Caberet, books with magic and choose your own path history books.  I am sure I am missing some categories on her list!

Thanks for the topic, love4books.  Sometimes I look at the books and just admire them, or sometimes I pick one up to donate to a children's charity or the library.

 

It seems the "Add Product" feature is not functioning at the moment, so I'll point readers to this link for a little browsing:

Re: Holiday Wish lists

My son, Victor, really wants color picture mazes, such as

Super Color Picture Mazes .  This book took him some time to finish.  I got him a standard book of mazes and he finished them in about an hour's time. 

 

I sat down with him yesterday, during our snow day, and we read some

Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective (Encyclopedia Brown Series #1) .  I think I have him hooked on those, so maybe I'll get him some more.

Ruth--I knew a little boy once who both a.) loved mazes and b.) enjoyed Encyclopedia Brown books.  So, it doesn't surprise me that Victor likes both of these also.  The little boy I knew is now a high school math teacher who still likes detective-type novels and still likes solving puzzles!  :smileywink:
