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.

The 39 Clues

Has anyone read The 39 Clues yet?   I am wondering how well they are liked and if they have any type of historical learning hidden within the reading.  I thought that this series would be a huge hit among the students at school but I haven't heard a peep.

I've wondered about their level of popularity, too, love4books.  I did hear this week that they've released the names of the rest of the authors of the series.  You can see the list here.

Re: The 39 Clues

My 10 year old son loves this series.  He takes the initiative to read them on his own and asks for the next one as soon as he is done.  He is on book #4.  I have also heard that there is a webinar tomorrow but don't know how to access this.  His 5th grade teacher is letting the kids in his class that are interested watch it.

Thanks, Alison.  How did the webinar go?  Did your son participate?

Actually there is some historical truth but there is a lot of fiction. But there are some true facts. But don't say it's all true.

Re: The 39 Clues

I just got the first book in the series for my 7-year-old and I'm hoping he might like it.  He was starting to get a bit bored with Magic Treehouse.  He is also starting to get more interested in the "Encyclopedia Brown" series, for which I have a special place in my heart.
