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.

Kiakar:

 

  I thought 'What Was She Thinking' was well written and the

characters well developed. It was an enjoyable read.

Did you like the book of hers you read? I haven't read it but have heard it was good.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller is a favorite of mine.  I highly recommend it.  The movie was quite good as well.  Judi Dench plays the manipulative Barbara and was nominated for an academy award.  I'm looking forward to Zoe Heller's new book!  -Jeanie

Hi Karen and gang it's me Debbie from Portage Des Sioux, MO (near St. Louis)

just got my confirmation so Yeah!! 

I've been in the First Look book club since the beginning so this will be my 5th first look book. I have enjoyed all of them and for those of you just beginning with us I'm sure you'll love it too. I't s such an incredible experience to be able to talk with and have the authors answer your questions. The authors have been very generous with their time and that along with the great people we get to share our opinions with make this a wonderful experience.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Hi, I'm IBIS and just my confirmation. I've joined earlier FIRST LOOK clubs before; and have enjoyed them all very much.

I've read Zoe Heller before, and find her writing very thought-provoking. I've never looked at Judi Dench nor Cate Blanchett the same again after their performances in NOTES OF A SCANDAL.

I'm looking forward to sharing your thoughts about THE BELIEVERS in October.

I signed up on the 18th but haven't heard anything yet. Hope I make it. I have never read Zoe Heller. This sounds interesting.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Greetings, I'm Lyn from the northeast Ohio area. Received my confirmation today. This is my 4th First Look Book and I've thoroughly enjoyed discussing them online.  Always was interested in picking up Notes on a Scandal but never got around to it.  So looking forward to discussing The Believers with such a diverse group.  Happy reading :smileyhappy:

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Hi there!

 

I hope I'm not to late to get in.  I just signed up.  I've never done an online book club before but I thought since I love to read it would be a great experience so here I am.  The Believers sounded like a great book.  I can't wait to read it!
