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: SPOILER! DON'T READ IF NOT DONE WITH BOOK!

Harry was not the only person Snape abused.  We were just talking about Harry's treatment in particular.

 

A 5-year old acting the way Snape did should have been corrected. 

 

Behavior such as his should not be excused/accepted. 

 

By anyone. 

 

Including Dumbledore.

Re: SPOILER! DON'T READ IF NOT DONE WITH BOOK!

I completely agree. I don't think Snape or Sirius ever got out of their teenage years. lol but they are both well deserved respected characters. And Dumbledore should not have aloud Snapes behavior, but he also wasn't always there so didn't really see. What could he really do? Anyway I don't think Snape would completely listen to him. He'd probably just be more sneaky about it.

don't look back, there is a reason why your past is the past. so if someone didn't make it into your future. that just means that you will find someone better.

but Dumbledore was the greatest wizard in the world!  He could have done any number of things.  Like, he could have made Snape's hair go all greasy whenever he was nasty to a student.

 

LoL
