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: Community Room

I'm about half way through Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie a beautiful story through the eyes of 3 different people during Nigeria's civil wars for independence in the 60s

 

A brown package was waiting for me today when I got home so I think I'll start it tonight. Happy reading everyone :-)

I will definitely go back to buy this book - I had looked at it at my last trip to B&N and was undecided.  Thank you for calling it to our attention, Zeal!

I bought this book a while ago and it is still sitting in the TBR pile - so many books to read :smileyvery-happy: - not sure when it will be selected. Love to know your thoughts about it when you have finished.

Re: Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Plum novels

I love the Janet Evanovich books!  It doesn't hurt that I grew up and still live right outside of Chambersburg where the stories take place!  Although they would be funny even if I didn't have such a close connectiong it is too funny to read about Stephanie going to St. Francis Hospital or driving down Greenwood Ave and think that I've been there and driven down that road too!  They are fun reads that just let you escape from reality.

Re: Community Room

My book arrived today while I was sitting at my computer reading all of your posts abut receiving the book.  I thought about starting it, but am going to put it away for a while and finish a book by Elizabeth Berg that I am half way through.

Re: Community Room

I was on the lookout for my book today, hopefully I'll get it tomorrow.  That will give me time to finish a work related book for something more enjoyable.

Re: Community Room

I was so excited when I got home from work just now and saw the brown box from Barnes and Noble.  Then I read that it was addressed to my husband.  I guess I'll have to wait until Monday for my book.

Yes! The First Look ARCs of UTUS have reached the upper midwest, specifically Minneapolis...the UPS dude just delivered my copy.  Nice way to start the weekend (as soon as I finish The 19th Wife).

Hey! Kathy!!  Nice to see you again.

Under This Unbroken Sky made it to Eastern Nebraska this afternoon. Can't wait to get started on it! Fridays are even better when you get a present from the UPS guy!

Re: Community Room

I loved HALF OF A YELLOW SUN by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.  She spoke at the Dallas Museum of Art Arts and Letters series.  She was wonderful.  She shared the program with Alexandra Fuller, a white African woman who wrote DON't LET's GO TO THE DOGS TONIGHT.  A very interesting evening...
