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.

The Doll by Daphne du Maurier



Ryan -- thanks for calling this to our attention.  (For anyone who likes Rebecca, I suggest at least checking out the description of this book to be released later this month.)

"Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here." -- Leo Tolstoy

Re: What are your recent book purchases?

City of Tranquil Light  Found this one at BN while I was looking for my current f2f book club book. Reviews are so good that I may choose it for book club when it's my turn to host. Of course that's Feb--may not be able to hold off until then.

Time Was Soft There  Intrigued by this one simply because I felt I've missed out on those non-institutional educational life experiences. Right now, I'll just settle for seeing these experiences through others' words.

Beneath the Lion's Gaze  Can't recall where I saw this one posted. BN perhaps? Anyway, it looked like one I couldn't pass up.

Last Night in Twisted River   I'm not a big Irving reader but the buzz was so good on this one (and it was on sale) that I couldn't resist passing it up.

Re: What are your recent book purchases?

Shards I like coming of age stories and have been eyeing this one for a while and finally couldn't resist purchasing it.

Kosher Chinese  This one was on the same BN New Authors shelf as "Shards".  It looked interesting--a nice little coming together of different cultures.
