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.

Planting Bulbs

[ Edited ]

Crocuses are one of the first harbingers of spring and one of the most welcome sights in any garden. In The Complete Flower Gardener, the featured section on the crocus is followed by suggestions for other choices (pages 280-281). The book recommends small bulbs such as winter aconite, Spanish bluebells, grape hyacinths and more.

Perhaps it's a shame that these small bulbs tend to be underused, when they give you so much bang for the buck. Have you used any of these small bulbs in your own garden? Which ones are your favorites?

Re: Flower Gardening

Most people get into gardening because they love flowers. This featured book has a wealth of information and lots of beautiful pictures. Since there are probably more of you interested in flowers than any other aspect of gardening, I'm assuming at least a few of you might have questions.

This is a great book to look through before you decide what to plant this summer. If you'd like to discuss the flowers you are considering with the rest of us, don't hesitate to ask!
