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.

I can't wait to get my copy of the book. I love to read, used to be nicknamed The Bookworm, lol. My favorite genres are horror and sci-fi/fantasy.

I was notified that my ARC would be sent out next month? (Jan)  I was wondering if it could be sent any earlier.  I noticed that the other members have ben receiving thier copies already and was hoping to get started!  Thank you!

Everyman-

I'm  a book freak. There are stacks of books in every room. I read a lot of fiction. Kite Runner, A thousand splended suns. divisedero. Any given Day. I have this thing about ARC the whole idea of reading a book before it is even out to the public. Also being able to carry a soft cover knowing it is only out in hard cover.......I know kinda strange.

 

Lately I've been into young adult novels, jerk by jonathan friesen and 3 willows by ann brashares.

 

so you see me finding this book club was like finding a gem!

You're in good company.   These book clubs could easily be a twelve-step program for book freaks with stacks of books taking over the house.

 

In my case, we finally got to build our retirement house a few years ago.  My wife got a dedicated art room; I got a two story library.  But even that can't hold anything like all my books.   You can accumulate a lot of books if you start buying in your teens, get piles of books for every birthday and Christmas, and are on a first name "welcome, come in, come in!" basis with every bookstore in the community.  

 

But I don't smoke, and I don't drink, and I don't gamble, so I guess I'm entitled to spend  money on books.  :smileyhappy:

That is how I am too.  I always say that I am "addicted" to books.  That is something that I can deal with being addicted to.  I wish that I had a library in my house, with a cozy place to curl up with a book and coffee and read.

Before they kick us off this thread and send us over to the community room, I'll just mention that there is a wonderful story by Somerset Maugham titled The Book Bag about the reading addiction.

Re: How to Get Your Free Reading Copy and Enroll in the Discussion

I had a problem getting into the discussions.  I also have a problem getting in on the day of the discussion or just making sure that I understand the schedule on the discussion.

 

The Author even had a problem getting into the discussion.

 

Although I love reading the advance book, I find most of my time reading the discussion, "after the fact."  That is since I can't get in I go back and read the threads to keep up to date.
