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. We've said 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.

Dessert Cookbooks

While browsing online, I came across a dessert cookbook entitled Sweet Sicily that looks really good. My local B&N doesn't have it in the store so I can't really look through it. I was wondering if anyone has it or has seen it. I'd appreciate any input as it looks like it would make a nice addition to my cookbook collection!

(Side note: This is coming from a B&N bookseller) If the book is available to order, you can always have it ordered into the store so you can look through it - shipping into the store is free and you don't have to pay for it ahead of time. If it stikes your fancy, then great :smileyhappy: If not, that's OK; the store can put the book on the shelf for other customers.

Our store does this quite a lot for our customers and it also helps us to tell what our customer base likes or dislikes.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Re: Dessert Cookbooks

I've ordered stuff before - but I didn't know I could refuse to purchase it if I didn't like it. I thought that I would have to buy it. Thanks for the suggestion Melissa.

Re: Dessert Cookbooks

Good idea if you see something cute or interesting online and you want to look through it first before deciding whether or not you would like to buy it. Remember B Dalton? That was a shopping mall bookstore (back when I was growing up.).
