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.

Ted Allen's THE FOOD YOU WANT TO EAT

Jon, to continue our discussion at the Joy of Cooking board...

I got a copy of TFYWtE: it's indeed very good. BTW, the suggested wine pairing in the omelette recipe is champagne or sparkling wine: I thought of you, Caroline, when I read this!

Jon, I've heard The Food You Want to Eat: 100 Smart, Simple Recipes by Ted Allen is a good choice for beginners.

Philomath,

I have never tried eating omelette with champagne. This should prove an interesting experiment!

I also recommend Prosecco in the morning if you prefer something sweeter and--to me, anyway--easier on the stomach. It's great with fruit and pastries; not so much with eggs, though. Yum!
