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. On May 1, we’re saying 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: IMPORTANT: Schedule Change (PLEASE READ)

This is my 5th first look and the one I enjoyed the most was the one where I stuck with the schedule.  At the same time I want to keep going and find myself forgettting stuff from beginning because I am reading 1 to 3 books in between reading BIF.  I have to have something to read but then they start to get a little mixed up in my head, if that makes sense.

Re: IMPORTANT: Schedule Change (PLEASE READ)

I am someone who can not put books down, so it is always impossible for me to stick to a reading schedule. I try to put whatever book down that I am reading, however I just can't sleep! I NEED to know what happens next!

Re: IMPORTANT: Schedule Change (PLEASE READ)

I have never been able to stick to the reading schedule!  I just can't help myself after I get so involved with the plot and the characters.  One thing that helps me to remember everything I want to "say", quotes from specific chapters, events, etc. is to keep a stack of post-it notes by my side as I read.  I mark spots in the book or make little notes on the post-its that I can refer back to once the discussions begin.


Whew!  It feels good to post again!  We have been having major computer problems, and I am so far behind on the boards...marathon reading/posting tonight in order to catch up!
