Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Short 1-3 Bookers

I was reading through the other thread with recommendations on the best fantasy books, but I figured that some people may be put off by the shear size of some of those series'.  This would be a good chance to offer smaller single books or trilogies etc... for consideration.  These should have a definite beginning and conclusion to them.


My 2 recommendations in this area are:


Brandon Sanderson: Mistborn Trilogy

C.S. Freidman: Coldfire Trilogy



What do you think would be some good stuff for beginners to work their way up to the massive collections we all know and love?

Re: Short 1-3 Bookers

Robin Hobbs has three trilogies that are very good The Farseer trilogy that consists of Apprentice Assassin, Royal Assassin, and Assassin Quest. Then there is her Liveship Trader's trilogy consisting of  Ship Of Magic, Mad Ship and Ship Of Destiny and her Solider's Son Trilogy that consists of Shaman's Crossing, Forest Mage, and Renegade's Magic.
