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.

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.

I finished A Clash of Kings. I did keep ahead of Season 2 on HBO. I am going to try to read the third book before the Season 3 starts on HBO. A Clash of Kings is an excellent book.

I started Dune today.  I've never read it before.  After that I will probably go back the the Raymond Feist Riftwar series.

The first three Dune novels were fantastic.... the rest? Eh.

Just started Lost Everything by Brian Francis Slattery. It's apocalyptic fiction and so far it is very much reminiscent of The Road...

Just started Inkheart(yes I know its young adult but still a fantasy) late last night, and just finished the first four books of Game of Thrones shortly before that.

I loved The Road. I will be waiting to see what you think after you finish Lost Everything.

Too much so, or is it something unique?

Currently reading Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Started reading it a few years ago but couldn't get into it. Started watching the tv series and fell in love with it. Bought it on my nook tablet and am really enjoying it this time.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I just picked up the second book by Colleen Helme,

The Relic  

 

I'm already 54pgs in and loving being back into this world.  It starts right off where the first book, 

Flame Of Destiny  left off, and not a lot of story retelling, which is wonderful for me!  I read the first book so glad there isn't wasted words on retelling, but diving into the story and action here.

Re: What are you currently reading?

The Man Who Crossed Worlds (Miles Franco #1)   This was a pretty darn good read especially for the price.  It's urban fantasy but has a sci/fi feel.

 

I've also finished (sniff) the Markhat series.  Gosh.  I liked these books from the start, but by the time I read about the last three, they were totally old friends.  I rarely stick with a series that long.  It will be at least November before a new one comes out.  The first few are kind of long novellas.  I recommend the whole series.  They're urban fantasy with a very fantasy feel and not so much UF.  Some of them also have a bit of a steampunk thing running through them.  The first is

Dead Man's Rain
