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.

Book is bought and downloaded to my Nook.  Now to get my pot of tea and handy night case for the trip.  Muse

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.

I, who never begins packing more than 24 hours before a trip and never finishes packing more than 15 minutes before I head out the door, have had my NOOK packed for this trip for several months now.  I'm going to kick back and enjoy a glass of wine (they always serve free wine on international flights, you know) as I begin my trip. A (FREE) SUMMER IN EUROPE, here I come!

May I join you?  I'll bring my own glass :-)  and a my special Seven Sinful Layers of Chocolate Decadance (Cake)... no calories...for we can't be worrying about gaining weight, can we  thumb. We ARE going first class, right?

Muse, you bring that cake (can I have a finger-taste of the icing before you cut it?  Please?).  I'll bring wine-- to complement the chocolate, a couple of my favorite reds and  some prosecco (and if anyone really likes the stuff, I'll throw in a rose and a sweet white)-- and glasses for everyone.  Would someone else volunteer to bring some fresh raspberries and/or strawberries?  We'll break out those nice first class blankets, pillows, and whatever other amenities we first class passengers get and start this trip off right.

 

I'm going to have such lovely dreams tonight!

Re: Reading Schedule for A Summer in Europe May's featured read

We are up in the mountains this week...oh wait a minute, I already live there.... we are camping in the trailer down the valley away from the phones this week and running up to check on things every couple of days.  A little gettaway time between groups...so I have already got my first section read....Almost read too far Whewww.  Now have to wait for Monday .... Need to go bake that cake.  It's a good thing my daughter is coming in...she's the 4-star baker and uses nothing but the REAL stuff...don't count calories Yummy.  Your wine and strawberries will go great with it.

Let's see:  Packing -  Book on Nook, Check;  Cake, in oven, Check -   Fav Teapot for one, Check  Instant Calorie Disposal, Double Check.  Camera for pictures, Check.  Ah.,...forget the clothes, I'll buy all new on the trip, more fun that way, Beside, no more room in my bag. See you guys next week.

I am getting very excited.  I fear once I start reading I won't be able to stop, going by my past experiences with Marilyn Brant novels.  I just joined the forum for this discussion, so I hope I will be able to find my way around here.  I am glad there is a spell check.

Lol  Ginger,

 

They are only available through Fiction General Discussion and available for a limited time for those going on this excursion.  Cost?  :-)  They are priceless.  Only those participating can truly appreciate the value.  Yours is in route.  Yours, too, Deb.

Re: Reading Schedule for A Summer in Europe May's featured read

OK.  So last night, I wanted a break from the nonfiction and literary fiction :smileywink: I'm reading.  I began ASE.

 

I was all comfortably settled into bed with my NOOK.. . . Her octogenarian aunt belongs to an S&M club! . . . I giggled . . . I laughed . . . I had to get up and go to the bathroom!  

 

(And, yes, I now know what S&M stands for :smileylol:)

You an me, both.  I even had Fred rocking and rolling in his chair!  I wonder if I can start one of those clubs here?  Hmmmm  Problem is no one around here knows many games beyond dymanos and yatzee.... A D&Y club just doesn't sound like as much fun as S&M.

 

See you Monday Ginger.
