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.

Well into week one of The Pub Across the Ponds and am enjoying the weather in the village of Ballybeog, yes it's rainy and grey and I've stepped into cow and sheep doo and even a bog or two too.

Right now I'm hanging out in Washington with the Roses wondering what will become of their Staffordshire figurines.  The war hasn't quite started, but it is beginning to fester.

Having never read this before, I thought I would time travel back to 1981 this weekend.

Thought I'd give this thread a jumpstart and send a postcard from my travels to England as I go back in time and try to help solve a murder mystery at The Red House!

Have you ever been to the Biltmore House?  It is beautiful at Christmas, but also in the spring when all of the flowers are blooming and you can walk all over the grounds.  I think they have opened up a lot more of the house since I was there.  Now I want to go again!!!

Not as an adult, but a friend from work spent a week in Asheville during a vacation and brought back pics so I got to live vicariously :smileyhappy:

One of these days I would love to see where some of my favorite authors write about and I have more than a few who are LowCountry writiers.
