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.

Lol....Thanks Paul.  The word I've really been trying to put into a post but still haven't found the perfect fit for is "defenestration".  I've been in love with the word since I was 12-13.  It just sounds so cool.

 


Ryan:

Geez, I had to look that word up!

 

defenestration – a throwing of a person or thing out of a window.

 

Hey, I'm going to try to slip this word into one of my reviews in your honor. I'll keep you updated...   :smileyhappy:

Re: BREAKING NEWS About The Wheel of Time! (Three More Books!)

Right now I am at odds on how to feel.  The Wheel of Time series is "THE" series that got me into not only reading Fantasy, but reading at all.  I have loved every minute of the series, even the slower moving books, and do not ever want to see it end.  However, Mr Jordan specifically stated this would be his last book, no matter how long it was. I am almost sickened by the "business" decision that is obviously pushing this.

 

Yes Sanderson is a great author, but remember that even he says he wants this book, now books, to feel like they were written by Jordan. Too much deviation just wont feel right to me. He has tons of notes, half written chapters etc... to make sure he doesnt go too far off course.
