Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, is growing and changing. On May 1, we’re saying 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 new friends!

 I live in Washington State about 2 hours north of Seattle with my wonderful husband and our 2 golden retrievers, Lucky and Buddy.  All of our children are grown up and we are now enjoying the grandparenting stage of life.  I love to read and am trying to expand my repertoire...I am not real clear on how to receive books beyond signing up...can anyone help me understand the process better?


Hi Magnolia2,

I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we'd welcome your company! I've only participated in a few of these discussions - there are several people who have been here since its 'birth' - but here's the process. You will want to keep you eye on the 'Announcement' thread, as a note will be put out there that a new First Look selection is in the works. Usually there will be a note regarding the date the book will be announced, and often at that time the note will say whether it's an ebook or a 'traditional' book. When that date arrives, and the book is announced, just follow the instructions on notifying the moderator that you want to participate. If it's an ARC, you will want to respond relatively quickly, as there are only so many available. It's really that easy! Looking forward to discussing books with you!! 


If I've neglected something, someone please chime in!
