Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Guest Author Visits: Whaddya Think?

Hi again,


Some of the other B&N book clubs have invited authors to visit the board, and respond to our questions.


This sounds like a great idea to me, and something I'd love to put together for you. The cookbook clubs seemed like a fun idea, but the feedback I received was that it was a lot of work, so it never took flight. This seems like a better alternative to me.


So tell me what you think -- do author visits sound good to you? And if so -- which authors come to mind as ones you'd like to invite over?


I am very eager to read your responses, and look forward to inviting the guests!
