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.

Correction needed for the answer to the question :

Q:      In book 7, who was found in the dungeon/basement of Malfoy Manor with Ollivander?

 

Harry, Hermione, and Ron were captured WITH Griphook and Dean Thomas.  When they were put in the dungeon, they found Luna Lovegood with Mr. Ollivander.   Dobby only came later in response to Harry's call for help.

I also need to correct the question I posed regarding the Hogwarts stairs.  I was looking for the answer 142, which is really the number of staircases, not the number of stairs!

Q. What was the spell that Harry used on Draco in the girls bathroom in book 6?

That rebel moon is shinin' Those stars burn like diamonds
Hell bent on chasin' down that crazy spark
I'll follow you where you're leading
To the first sweet taste of freedom
You got me runnin' baby,
Wild at heart

 A: Gideon and Fabian (and since Ron never says what his uncle's last name is, I would also say Bilius, just in case)
