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.

Thanks Deb! I'm really excited about this selection, and the opportunity to discuss it with everyone here, as well as Francine!

 

I'll get the book this weekend so I can keep on top of the reading schedule (I can't remember the last time I read to a schedule, but I'll sure give it a try!)

I'm navigating to the store whose name shall not be mentioned to pick up the ebook.  I'm looking forward to the reading and discussion.  The next few months are a really busy time for me.  I've already seemed to run a few days behind in discussions on the previous book; I will try to better on Paris Noire.  Talk with you guys soon.

Thirsty, I just sent you a PM. Deb checked on ebook availability for me last week.  If you have a rooted NOOK of any kind, you can download Paris Noire in ebook.

Re: Reading Schedule for Paris Noire February Feature Read

Hi Everyone - I just dropped in briefly to let you know that I hopefully will be in the loop for Paris Noire - I'm trying to get myself (and others) ready for 2 months in sunny Florida. We leave on Friday, and I'm beginning the book. Hopefully I'll chime in once we get settled. Happy Reading...

Re: Reading Schedule for Paris Noire February Feature Read

The conversation will be starting in just a few days, I'm so glad to have all of you onboard for our trip to Gay Parie.

Francine is really excited to be joining us and so is her publicist Sarah and Sarah's associate Katie too.

 

I think it'll be an interesting read for all of you, a look at WWII differently than we're used to from the French prospective.
