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.

 Mel,

 If you like Monty Python type British humor these are the best. There are at least 20 Discworld books. It's all a parody but there are some real life messages to Sir Terry's work.

 Oh no! Toni, Brad, now I feel like I need these. My list is soooo long...plus 20?! Not complaining -- I need to know what I need so I don't choose time-wasting junk.

Speaking of which.

 

Hey Paul!

I can not find the old movie thread. I don't want to start another if you can find it (not that I mind, just trying to be tidy). I've looked 8 pages back, did it get renamed or something?

Tig:

I moved it to the top a while back because it was rcoking with posts but  it had been dead for a while so I threw it back. Should I pull it back up? Just say the word.
