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 Karen,

I just signed up so now just crossing my fingers. I haven't had the pleasure of reading Zoe Heller so I'm looking forward to experiencing her for the first time.

Can't wait.

I'm not sure that I'm registered.  Was it a simple click on the title - The Believers or did I miss the spot?

Hi, I'm Deb and I loved Notes on a Scandal and also Everything You Know, which I'm not certain is available in the US. I ordered it from the UK. She's a great writer and I can't wait to read her latest.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Hello all;

 

I am so happy to be in another great book read with all of  you. All of these clubs are so adventurous. We do not know the beyond of these brand new stories. I just love the suspense of it all. I am a real oldy on B&N book clubs and of course the most avid reader there is on earth. Well, at least, one of the most avid readers.  I am retired so I read all the time, well sometimes I have lunch dates with friends and overnite trips with friends and doodle alot with scrapbooking and am on some committees but mostly read. What a life of Riley!  I know!  Happy reading to us all.   Linda (Va)

Hi, everyone.

 

I'm Chana, from Haifa (northern Israel).  I just signed up, and hope I got in.  I'm another old veteran of B&N book clubs (since 2006), but this is my first First Look club.   It was indeed very hard to choose between the two books offered this time.  I haven't read Zoë Heller's work before, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Re: Welcomes and Introductions

Thanks to Melissa W for the info on registering.  I'm registered and I hope I will receive a copy.  I enjoy the different viewpoints that readers have of the same book I read!  I certainly enjoy the opportunities that First Look provides.
