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.

Re: Welcome & Introductions

Hey peeps. My second First Look, but  I had just started a new job after I finished The Believers, so I didn't have time to contribute. But, hopefully I can get into this one. Looking forward to reading this one and discussing with all of you.

 

Best,

Re: Welcome & Introductions

Hi Everyone  =)  I have received my confirmation message and am excited that I am included in this group.  As an eclectic reader, I always have a few books going. LOL  I  have enjoyed "First Look" offerings since the beginning and think this one really looks good. I can't wait to discuss it with all of you, our moderator, the author, and any others who will join us! Thank you B&N for making the discussion possible.

[ Edited ]

Hi,

This is my first time participating in First Look. I'm from western Massachusetts. I thank 2007's television writers strike for getting me back to reading.  I went back to reading and lost interest in TV. I normally read thrillers and mysteries and thought that this would be a good way to try other genre.

Hi Norma. Hopefully you're feeling better. I live in the city in Wrigleyville, so I'm glad to see Chicagoland represented. Can't wait to talk about the book.

Re: Welcome & Introductions

Hey Karen,

 

I'm reading "I Know This Much Is True" by Wally Lamb. I've had this book for quite a while and thought I would read it before I read his new book, "The Hour I First Believed."  Sounds like you're really enjoying it.  I Know... is pretty interesting and from what I've read about the new book, sounds like it will be a great book also.

Hello everyone!

 

I can't wait to read this book b/c I loved the other First Looks so much! 

 

Hi Bonnie! Just wanted to send out a special hello to a fellow psychologist! I used to live in rural county in NC as well. I teach psychology at a college in SC now!! 


Hi back. If I make a 3rd career change (I was a special ed teacher first) it will be to college teaching I think. I would want to teach teacher's I think. Reading/Literacy/LD are special interests of mine. I love psychology too, but not that intro course.
