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. 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: Welcome and Introductions

Hi, I'm Samantha.  I'm 19--right on the edge of teenhood.

 

I'm attending university, hoping to graduate with two degrees.  I want to work in the book publishing business in the future.  (Loving stories for a career--sweet deal.)  I keep two blogs: one for books and one for writing.

 

I've been hearing good things about Hush, Hush in the blogosphere, so I'm looking forward to reading it and discussing it with everyone.

 

Oh, and I have a dog.  His name is Rootbeer. =)

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi, I'm Bonnie and I'm 20. I love to read and then discuss the book, but I don't have many friends or family who read as much as I do or get into it as much as I do. I hope this will help a little and I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Ahh, the introduction post.  I'm Kewpie.  I'm in my mid twenties and pretty much only read YA titles!  I've worked with books for years and am trying to get published, a slow and tedious thing.  My favorite book is The Grey King, by Susan Cooper.  Twilight, Pendragon, and A Certain Slant of Light aren't far behind it!  

 

Going away from books, I'm a huge Doctor Who and Star Wars fangirl. This is my first bookclub.  Can't wait to see how it turns out!

[ Edited ]

I'd like to ditto Toni's (Nelsmom) welcome to everyone.

And to all you newbies out there to First Look I guarantee you will love it here. I've have been lucky enough to be involved with all of them from the first. It's such a great way to discover new authors and even more important new friends among the participants. And I'm also glad that there is such a wide variety of us to talk about this book. 

So just don't let this be the last time you participate.

Can't wait to start the discussion.
