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.

Re: 20 Questions

I think this is a clarification and not a question.  If you feel differently, just asign it a number --  when you say "attend" do you mean "as a student"?  So that someone who is at Hogwarts in any other capacity, eg, visiting, haunting, teaching etc,  would not be included in the class?

Yes, the word "attend" should mean "as a student".

P.S.:  I won't be able to check this again until I get back from work, so I won't be on here again for another 7 hours at least.  I don't want people to think I abandoned the game.

She's one of my favorites.  I always wish that I could get away with acting so "odd"; you know, "odd" in a good way.

Like Luna does -- yes.  I love it when the depth of her character shows thru.

 

OK, I am thinking of a place.
