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.

I probably should hold off on this until August, but I would only forget!

 

This site has a video featuring Zoe Klein and links to another site with additional pictures and information.  Fun!

Re: ** Reading Schedule - August -Exciting News!!!

Well I hope you are all as excited as I am for Monday to get here so we can start the conversations on Drawing in the Dust. Zoe is out of town until Tuesday and will join us then.

 

So have a great weekend everyone and I'll see you bright and early on Monday morning.

Re: ** Reading Schedule - August -Exciting News!!!

I started the book a couple of days ago and had to put it down.  I'm planning to re-start today.  9 Chapters by Monday should be doable. 

 

Thanks for the link.  Very interesting.

 

Can't wait for discussion!!

Sounds good. I'm finishing up The Passage right now but should be done in the next two days. Should be able to catch up with everyone else by then.

I am back from an extended break from the boards and very excited about joining you for a while. I just placed Drawing In The Dust on hold at the library and will pick it up later today. I will get caught up over the weekend and join in the fun!
