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.

"Larklight" by Philip Reeve: A discussion on a Victorian space pirate adventure

Larklight, a.k.a. "A Rousing Tale of Dauntless Pluck in the Farthest Reaches of Space", is, in my opinion, one of the greatest tween books of the 21st century. Honestly, space pirates, megalomaniacal white spiders wearing bowler hats, lizardlike creatures of unknown origin with amazing understanding of alchemy, flying houses and true mad scientists? The book can't be beaten in its amazingly captivating plot.

I've waited long enough for replies... Since no one cares about this wonderful book which I would love to discuss, I wonder how I can remove this thread entirely from the board... :smileysad:

Did you cross-post this on the the SciFi/Fantasy board? You might find interested readers there; the r-mod is lady_hockey.

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

Thank you!!! (Later) ... Wait a second... There's something wrong with the Sci-Fi board! I'm very confused as to why it won't let me post a new thread... Or did I misunderstand your advice??? Please explain, although I'm very sorry to bother you again.

lady_hockey, who is the reader-moderator for the SciFi board, probably has it set so that only she can start new threads. My own board (Literature by Women) is set up that way because it helps to keeps the discussions more streamlined. Try posting under this thread where people suggest different things for the board to discuss. You can also private message (PM) her and suggest Larklight as one of the monthly selections.

Thank you so much for the link!!! I will post my thread as soon as I finish this post. I still do wonder why lady_hockey is so selfish about sharing the sci-fi/fantasy board... (oops -- I hope lady_hockey isn't reading this right now...)
