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. On May 1, we’re saying 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'm reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier now, and I'm loving it despite the fact it's not what I would normally read.

Thanks for posting this one.  I've never read any of her books, but being an Alfred Hitchcock fan, I really should.


 


I agree with Ryan.  Rebecca is a classic and well worth the read.  Then you can decide if you like the author's style and want to read more.

This book was fine.  It was a good story, but not great.  The writing was average.  The book took place in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s, and I enjoyed the descriptions of the hair, fashions, and music from each era.

Hi Jericho and welcome to General Fiction

these look like really good books

 

The premise for The Age of Miracles is interesting would you call it dystopian?

Did you like it. I usually disagree with most of Oprah's picks
