Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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: What Will J. K. Rowling Write Next?

I think she should write a book about the adults as kids

While the totally fannish fan in me would love to see some of the backstory of my favorites, especially those that didn't survive to the end of the series, I can understand if she doesn't.


My more moderate writer side would like to see what she does with entirely new characters in an entirely different setting. Preferably something written specifically for adults this time. (Let's face it, most of the 1st gen HP fans are now in their mid-20s or older.)


I thought I had heard JKR mention a mystery story at one time. If someone hadn't already successfully run with the idea, I'd say a series featuring the Sherlock Holmes character Irene Adler. Maybe along those lines: a strong female protagonist in a Victorian-Edwardian setting. Or maybe during WWII?
