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: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hi!  My name {LOOKS UP TO CHECK AND SEE SHE REMEMBERS HER NAME} is B00K_L0VER.  Yep, that's correct.  I'm still pretty new to My BN and the book clubs here.  I think you might be proud to hear this was the first Book Club (digital or otherwise) I ever joined.  But enough dilly dally.  I'll get to Harry Potter,

 

I'm newer to Harry Potter, the first time I read it was two and a half years ago (after I realized Twilight was junk).   I was SUPER-EXCITED when the last two movies came out,even though I couldn't go to the midnight premiers.  I get the whole Harry Potter buzz, it's what everybody wants to happen to them. 

:{D How do you like my moustachio? :}D

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Greetings! My husband and I have read, listened to, watched, discussed, analyzed, laughed and cried about this reading phenomena over the years. Honestly, these are the first audio books we recommend for friends going on vacation. Jim Dale does an incredible job speaking, and it makes for a wonderful way to pass time during a road trip. Needless to say, we have read the series numerous times over the years...sometimes preparing (anxiously awaiting) the next book, other times getting ready for a movie release. Harry Potter (AKA JK Rowling) has been a most welcome guest at many a party - as a topic of conversation of course! I look forward to exploring and reading this wonderful blog devoted to the 'potterverse' we have all come to think of as a neighbor, friend, or distant relative. Thank you!!! Teri 'Renaissance93'

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hello everyone,

 

I think I subscribed to this over a year ago, but just getting online to really get into it. I didn't start off as a HP fan, until I actually sat down and watched the first movie when out of the movies. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not, but once I seen the first movie I was hooked ever since.

 

I didn't read any of the books until the last book was released, and I must say I enjoy it. Thereafter, I read each book starting from book 7 to book 1, and yes in that order. LOL I would LOVE to read them all over again, but right now my books are in storage :smileysad:.

 

My ultimate mission as a HP fan is go to London for the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Tour. My daughter and I was planning on going in 2013, but decided to wait until 2014. We have done the Harry Potter amusement park at Universal Studios in Orlando, and boy was that part of the park crowded. So the next time we go, we are going early.

 

Well, that's enough about me. If you would to reply to me be my guest... Hope to hear you guy soon...

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Welcome! Since Pottermania cooled a little after all the books & movies came out, it's quieted down some here. But, there are still the occasional drop-ins that like a good discussion.

Re: Goodbye My Reading Buddies

It is with a heavy heart that we must part ways from our B&N Message board comunities.  As of May 1st, we must pack our books and head for a new adventure.  This feels like......when your parents send you away for the summer, but we won't be making our way back to the comfort we had on the message boards.  We won't have the welcoming open arms of the friendly moderators on the various message boards!

 

As times change, things change too.  We have to adapt and make our way.  Change is never easy; and some people will have a hard time unless our friends show us some guidance. Even though we will be venturing onto something new, we need to stick together and share information to help those who need guidance along the way.

 

This is definately going to be a brand new experience for me.  I hope you will provide insight and provide any assistance getting used to the new way of things.

 

I am going to visit daily until the very end.

 

Keep strong :smileywink:

Voldemort must have bought B&N, right?  What else could account for this?

Re: Goodbye My Reading Buddies

Hey Jeff,
I think you are right. It seems like something he and his gronies would do. Maybe we should call the Order of the Phoenix and get some magical help. What do you think?
