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.

Hello, my name is Terri and I live in Denver, Co.  I have recently started my own business and think this book group will be a good break.  I have never been a part of a reading group before and look forward to this one.  I have always loved to read and this book looks really  good.  I will talk to you all later

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi, Rachel!

I'm looking forward to reading something that hasn't been assigned for a class and to discussing a book with non-English majors. I'm also really looking forward to reading this novel and very jealous of Colson Whitehead's excellent name.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi, Liisa22. It is first come, but we will start posting some big alerts if we've run out of books, and we will stop taking registrations altogether.

 

Great to see everybody here! Over the next couple of days, I'll begin to post a couple of threads to get us started as our books arrive and we all begin to dip into them.

Hi.  I am Ellen, another reader from Northern Va, Arlington to be exact.  Like gimp, I also have MS.  Due primarily to fatigue along with other MS symptoms I have had to stop working (not so bad) and I have had to drop out of my wonderful book club (horrible).  I am a voracious reader and like a lot of different genres.  This is my first foray into an on-line club.  This books sounds fascinating and right up my alley.  I sure hope I made the cut-off.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi there!  I just received my confirmation and can't wait to read "Sag Harbor".  We just moved to the Memphis area and I haven't found a book club yet, so I am very much looking forward to sharing.  This is my third First Look book and I've enjoyed the last two.  I'm thrilled to see what B&N has selected for us this time!!:smileyhappy:

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Yeah, just got my confirmation!  I'm in...Can't wait to start.  My name is Sara, I live in Oceanside CA which is North of San Diego.  I don't get a lot of time to read, so I'm hoping we only have to make it a few chapters in before the discussion begins.  Although if it's one of those books I can't put down, all the better.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello everyone!

My name is Katelyn, and this will be my second First Look experience. I look forward to reading this book, and participating in the discussion as my first encounter with this program was such a positive one. At the moment I am emersed in the world of Shakespeare, and although I love his plays this book will be a nice break from old english.
