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.

Hello to all writers and readers,


My name is Ryan Sherwood and I'm an author of two ebooks Hold the Light and Revenants : Fallen Savior with SynergEbooks. I've spent years chasing down agents and enduring the Catch-22 of needing an agent to get an agent it seems, as well as querying publishing houses of all sizes, to little avail. I have found several NY Times best selling authors that have started as ebook authors, lending a bit of encouragement to the doggedly-determined-to-the-point-of-delusional authors that feel like we're just spinning our wheels in the mud. I can't say I've have the luck as the aforementioned best selling authors, lacking an agent and money to advertising with, but its hope and much better than querying everyone and their mother to get my books noticed.

With the Kindle and other ebook reading devices, the ebook is on the rise, even if it is a slow ascension. And, as I hope, it can bring aspiring writers to print...or screens.

Thank you,
