Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Week One
Friendship Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Please use these questions as a jumping off point, do not think they’re the only thing to chat about. I love it when you add your own thoughts bring up questions that come to you.


We’ve met the female friends and most of the core characters.
What’s your first impression of the “girls”?

Do you have a favorite yet, or is there someone who pushes your dislike buttons?


The friends have arrived
Tell us your thoughts about the “Dinner in Darkness”


About Amsterdam and Judy’s trip down memory lane.


Lisa uses humor throughout the first part
Tell us your thoughts on the humor itself and what effect it has on the novel


If you follow Lisa on FB you’ll know that she devotes quite a bit of time to her life with Teen girls.
Do you think some of that “experience” has seeped into her pages?
