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.

Okay, this one has been hanging around too long, and Psychee's very good hint didn't help, so I'll let you off the hook.  The answer was Gillywater.

 

Here's an easier one.

 

Name the Weasley children chronologically, from oldest to youngest.

Re: Harry Trivia

Fluffy, Aragog and Norbert belonged to Hagrid (although I think Aragog would consider himself Hagrid's friend, rather than his pet!)

 

 

Name 8 talking portraits (8 is all I can think of right now, there may be lots more)

Difficult question, Duckie,

 

I think DD drank 12 goblets of the gunk, but he said NO  at various times, the first I think around goblet #4.

 

Next question:

 

 

How many broomsticks did Harry ride while at Hogwarts?
