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.

April, IIRC. Rothfuss may be deliberately delaying his books, but he's no George R.R. Martin.


 

Good news..sort of,  cuase of the long wait. As to the second part nobody is as bad as Martin. Worst about this I've EVER seen. Course now I don't care when he puts out the next Songs of Fire and Ice book. I've got other authors to give my money to.

Re: Patrick Rothfuss: The Wise Man's Fear

Regarding the used bookstore idea, my local one is small but has older science fiction and fantasy.  If someone is looking for a particular item, I would be willing to do a search.  A close friend owns the store, so I am there 2-3 times a week anyways.  :smileyhappy:

 

Re: the library issue, mine also has the "missing #1" problem.  However, they take good care of their regulars and have a good track record of ordering missing volumes. 

 

RE: to the person looking for a great series with lots of volumes, I highly recommend The ValdamarChronicles from Mercedes Lackey.  At last count there were 27 volumes available!  She also provides a user-friendly timeline , which is very necessary as it is a big world with several storylines running.  I think it took me nine months to read them, with very little breaks between them.  Yes, they are that good!:smileyhappy:

Re: Patrick Rothfuss: The Wise Man's Fear

Okay, I know this has come up in a few other threads also.  Patrick has turned in his draft for the second book to his editor.  I have attached the link to go to the post Patrick made on May 11, 2009.

This could be a great start!!
