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.

Re: Ask Elinor Lipman

Elinor,

 

I thought you might be a prolific reader/viewer of news as well as publications like The New Yorker, which I also read.  It is difficult for me to read through the goings-on being so far away.   

 

But you have quite a list!  I can just keep up with Time and The New Yorker, nevermind trying to read two dailies.  You amaze me!

"Subscribe" does not always mean "read"... I do try, though.

Re: Ask Elinor Lipman

Elinor,

 

Here it is the 26th, and our time has run short!   Thank you SO much for joining us to discuss your work, especially The Family Man which I loved, and will read again and again. 

 

I know we're all eagerly awaiting your next novel, and I hope you join us again in the book clubs in the future. 

 

Thank you again,

Stephanie

Re:Thank you - Elinor Lipman

I, too, want to thank Elinor! 

 

Elinor,

 

Thank you so much for coming back to B&N, and giving me, again, a chance to talk about your book.  And to talk to you, personally, it's always a joy and a pleasure. 

 

I wish you nothing but the best on this novel, and all future writing....Come back soon!

 

Your ever-loving fan,

 

Kathy
