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.

Breakfast of Champions

One of my favorite passages in The War of Mirrors is when Ellington Ermine sits down to eat breakfast with Horatio Hogg while the Battle of Leaves rages around them. Cornbread, hominy grits, pumpkin soup with marshmallows floating in it... what could be better?

Re: Breakfast of Champions

If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. My southern grandma used to top mashed sweet potatoes with mini marshmallows (and brown sugar) and then bake it until everything melted.

Okay, it was an *insane* amount of sweetness for what could have been a healthy side dish, but it was goooooooood.

That dish that you just described is what is on every member of my family's table every Christmas for dinner. And it has been since before I could remember it. Butter and vanilla flavoring is also used most of the time.
