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.

This sounds like a book I will really enjoy, because I love thrillers.  I have never participated in the book clubs before, but I am looking forward to it.  Once August is underway, do I just keep checking this board and jump in?

Hi Tar-HeelGirl00 and WELCOME!!! I love new members and I know all my other peeps here do to. And yes on Monday 8-6 you will find a thread here called Week One Discussion of The Dispatcher, I'll ask questions and everyone has fun answering them, the author will jump in and add to the fun too.

Before then I'll be posting my interview with Ryan and my review of the novel.

But until then please come by often and post on the threads that interest you, you could go to the introduction and say hay to everyone, go to the what are you reading now and let us know what you're tastes run to. Or just participate in the monthly read here's what's left for 2012 http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/Fiction-General-Discussion/2012-Featured-Reads-by-Month/m-p/1...

Well kind of Patti, but I would call it either a crime drama or a thriller
