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. 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.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

I hope it's not too "brutal", but I am ready for a good mystery. I don't usually read this type of book but a new reading adventure awaits me. Thanks!!

I share your love of the books by Stieg Larsson but I haven't read anything by Henning Mankell. What would you recommend as a good read by Mankell?  Thank you.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

Not my usual genre, but that's why I love First Look.  I have enjoyed reading the previous FL selections.  This club has pushed me outside my comfort zone and it's been a rewarding experience.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

Floreader,  I completely agree.  I participated in the Wake of Forgiveness discussion.  This is book I would have looked at because of the gorgeous cover, but I don't think I would have read it.  It is one of the best books I have read this year and am so thankful to get to participate in this wonderful group.

This isn't normally a book I would pick up, either, but it sounds great! I'm always open to reading new titles and genre's. I love the diversity of all the First Look picks. :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks Paul! :smileyhappy:


This is the best part of First Look: reading what you normally wouldn't. To experience new authors and expand your horizons.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

  This sounds like it's a book right up my alley.  I love to read mysteries  and espionage and this looks like it will fit the bill.  Bravo to First Look for what looks like another great read.

This is great! I have just read "The Man Who Went Up In Smoke" a 1966 novel written by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo two Swedish writers. Also The "Girl Who Play with Fire" . I am really enjoying Swedish authors.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

Hey Floreader:  

I too would not have read this otherwise, so now I am glad to be waiting for the book to read now that I am a FL reader.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

To wjbauer:

 

What is different -or special- about the Swedish writers-authors- whom you've read so far?  Can you pinpoint any particular style or prose?
