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: Deb's Coffee Klatch-Off Topic Chat

Did my good deed for spring yesterday.  Dug up and rescued 3 old Peonie plants at a demolition site where we are tearing down an old trailer to build a new Habitat House.  

 

They are now residing in the front yard at the Lodge.  I think I may be a happy camper.  ---- provided they survive the move.  BTW, we will be also rescuing and moving a huge quince and lilac bush(s) before the backhoe levels the yard.....my yard is getting happier by the moment.

Just a little something for those suffering from a bad case of spring fever

 

grass grow

Watching Grass Grow

It isn't every day that you can sit still and listen to the grass grow
It isn't every day that you can stare at the sky and watch the wind blow
But when life hands you one of those days, don't ask why
Just check out and wait for the small things to come by
A basket with food and wine and a blanket to spread
A place beside a brook on which to make your bed
An old cane pole with a bent rusty hook that will work
To sling over your shoulder and walk down the road with a smirk
After all, it's your day to live, a day to be free
To lean against the willow and just let yourself be
Tomorrow will come with its troubles and cares
When you have to go back knowing all of life will be there.
But for today, it's all gone, today you're a kid
Today you can once again do whatever you once did.

--Muse

Good morning Happy Friday

 

here's our Friday thought

“The lectures you deliver
may be wise and true,
But I’d rather get my lessons
by observing what you do.
I may not understand
the high advise you like to give,
But there’s no misunderstanding
how you act and how you live.”

 Edgar Guest
(1881-1959)

Very quiet on the board this am, you can almost hear a 

drop

 

here's our Sunday thought

 

“It is wrong always,
everywhere, and for everyone,
to believe anything
upon insufficient evidence.”
