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.

Heavily leaning towards men? I don't understand, Lily... Male authors?

Re: And Now For Something Completely Different... (Preview of May/June Features)

Paul, maybe you posted the july/august books but I havent noticed it.  My library is so poky about getting books, the sooner I reserve them to more the chance they may actually come in while there is still a discussion.  I just got the "In the Courts of the Sun"  today and ordered it right after these thread was posted. 

 

Anyway, please let me know whats next up. 

Dude, Where's my book!
