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. 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: Three Seconds: Interesting Links

For some reason, I didn't think that it would look so much like a real gun and it is even smaller than I thought it would be.

Re: Three Seconds: Interesting Links -- Sweden and Poland

I don't have the link but if you go to CNN.com they just posted a story about a woman coming in from out of the country to Detriot carrying 91 bags of heroin in her body as a drug mule. Thought it was very interesting in light of our recent discussions here at First Look. There is a picture of the bags that she carried and I must admit they are bigger than I thought they would be.  It is really scary when you think about if they had busted. I believe it was 2 1/2 pounds total. It states she didn't know how much or exactly what she was carrying although she admitted it was drugs. It appears that she was simply a puppet to fulfill the motives of others just as the mules in our book were.

Try the above.  Amazing.  Thanks for the heads up, My Ocean.  I had not heard about this until I saw your story.  (If the above doesn't work, it can take a little searching to find the story.  I finally did it from selecting "more" on U.S. news.)

Peppermill,

Thanks so much for finding the link for us.

I knew it would interest those who read the book and then couldn't find the link again after I went back to look for it.

Thanks again!!!
