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: Questions for Doubleday's Editor, Bill Thomas?

Mr. Thomas,

 

I've been reading your posts and I have to say that I am so impressed and humbled by your support of your clients, passion for the work, and love of the craft.  If ever I were to write...I'd want you to be my editor, without a doubt.  Colson Whitehead is not only talented, but a very fortunate writer to have you in his corner!

 

Thanks so much for taking the time to share with us.  It's been great!

 

 

Suzi

what I think is special about this novel is how light it feels on the surface, yet how complex it truly is.   


Perfect! It's what made me really enjoy this novel. And I want Bill Thomas as my editor too!
