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.

Hi everyone-

 

Can't wait for my book to come in the mail.  I really enjoyed 'Notes on a Scandal' so I'm excited about this book.

 

I also found First Look through LibraryThing--which is the best book tracking website ever.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Dear dogearedcopy...

Thanks for saying your book just arrived on 10/7 and including your geographic location. I also live on the West Coast (but in Southern California). Knowing that your copy didn't arrive until the 7th helps me feel optimistic that I may get my copy before the week is out! I signed up on 9/17 and received my confirmation on 9/26...but so far, no book.

 

By the way, I've never been up to your neck of the woods. I've been to many places in the States (mostly) and Mexico (I studied there some years ago), but haven't made it "up north" yet. I hear Southern Oregon is lovely. If you don't mind saying, do you like living there? What are the best and worst things about your area? Now that people have their books, I don't know if anyone would like to address these questions about their regions, but I'm always interested to know what people feel about where they live. I hope to travel more and I find it interesting to know what people think/how they feel about the areas/cities/towns they live in and how they feel about their lives there. ...I enjoy people's "stories" as it were. I guess that's one of the reasons I love books so much. So many wonderful stories! So many opportunities to connect with other thoughts/ideas/people/times/etc.

Good Evening everyone,

I am so happy that the book club was still open.  I am really excited about this book.  I did participate in the last First Look, but not as much I would have liked.  I am in Fairfax, VA.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

I signed up a long time ago and have not received my copy yet.  Where is it or when can I expect it.  I wanted to read some before the discussion started on the 20th.

Thanks, Martha

Martha, If you received your confirmation you might want to send Karen or Maria a pm and see what's going on.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Carmenere_lady -- I don't see a reply to this yet, so allow me -- LibraryThing is an online place to create your virtual library and talk to other bibliophiles (actually, biblioholics :smileyvery-happy: ). You can create a library that reflects the books you own, or those you've read (like a reading journal) -- whatever fits for you. Members post tons of book reviews, and discussion threads are lively and absolutely stuffed with suggestions for further reading. Highly recommended, go take a look!
