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.

Excellent after 70 pages in....


You are so right!  I downloaded this one this weekend for half-price and I am hooked!  

 

Also, a question for Debbie.....I notice "The Winter Witch" is also on sale this weekend.  Is it going to be one of the monthly features?

I'm still planning it for December TarHeelGirl, there may be some minor changes. If you stay tuned to when I advertise my May feature it may answer some questions.

but it was a fabulous novel :smileyhappy:

Can't quite get into the memoir I've been reading so I'm choosing fiction--lots and lots of fiction! This is the current one:

The River of No Return 

It's not my normal type of read. Hopefully taking myself out of the box will pay off!

Re: Weekend Reading

I just finished the book, and I loved it.  It never talked over your head, and made all the information very easy to understand.  It was very entertaining and informative.

Ryan it's interesting that you mentioned this. I was watching a NOVA PBS program this week about this very subject with plants. Imagine that

I've read about halfway through it and found myself starting to skim way too much. It started to lose it's uniqueness as a time travel book and started to go the route of a bodice ripper--nothing wrong with that but not what I want to read right now. Taking a break from it and have read two books since and still don't have the urgency to get back to it.

Defending Jacob 

 

Read this one for my face to face book club. Though mystery/thrillers aren't one of my favorite genre's to read I whipped through this one pretty quickly. The author sure tapped into my emotions and took some interesting tactics.  It's one of those books that is hard to "like" because of the subject matter but is so hard to put down. I'd definitely read another of Landay's.

Wow Ryan, are you sleeping with the lights on :smileyhappy:

or are you like me and reading horror doesn't bother you as much as watching it?

 

Some great titles there

Re: Weekend Reading

I'm fine watching or reading it, the only one I loved though was the Brian Keene book, which suprised me.  I tried another of his books a few years ago and that it was horrible.  In theory, I love horror fiction, but rarely like it in practice.  They seem so cliche all the time, much like the Richard Laymon book.  I didn't like or really dislike it, it was take a ouija board, add in some backwoods inscetous hillbilles, and stir.  Been there done that.
