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.

A really good book is much like an artichoke. As you peel back each page of the of the book, you get closer and closer to the succulent heart of the story.

This thought is brought to us by our friend VTcozy, who said it was 34 degrees this am, brrrrr.

Re: Deb's Coffee Klatch-Off Topic Chat-Friday's Thought

Thanks for the Steve Jobs quotation today!  How sad to lose him, when so many today get to reach much older ages and still be contributing.

 

Did you all catch this from Donald Angus's site (it's not quite today's news -- I first saw it a day or two ago): 

 

"Wow! Stunning news today. I’m going to be having a son in February. I knew, obviously, that I was going to have a something in the new year – but I found out at the scan today that it’s a boy. Excellent news! While I love my little daughter Emma very, very much, there is something about having a boy-child that’s pretty special for any dad. So . . . Well done to my lovely wife, Mary. And hip, hip hooray for me!"

Cool news! Congrats to Angus and his wife!  And....good luck!

 

Speaking of boys...This morning I feel like I've been run over by one little 8 yr. old  boy named Evan! He has more energy than the energizer bunny! And a 10 yr. old little girl named Emma, "Ms. Teacher"....drove me over the edge! And I have tire tracks to prove it!  It's a long story, they went home at 8:30 last night.... we had fun, but suffice it to say, Grandma is pooped this morning!

Energizer bunny    In honor of Kathy's grandson!  May he sometimes have you floating on air rather than like this (yeh, I know, the parallels aren't quite right -- but I couldn't think of a "Kathy" balloon.):

Kathy -- love the tire treads on the smiley-face!

First, TGIF!

Well the site still wont let my nook on line and I'm going through withdraw! I don't have a cell or PC, so my nook is all I got and I love these boards. I'm not the only one I seen threads pop up from others having problems and down at the bottom where it says members online, well the numbers are way lower than normal.
