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.

I watched a lot of the potter puppets, they were really funny.  I was actually thinking about it yesterday because I was talking to someone about the musical, very potter or something, and for some reason it made me think of the puppets.

 

I remember a game that was on the harry potter site where you had to grow a mandrake, mine always died, it was kind of sad.

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.

Re: What do you remember most about the whole Potterverse Phenomena, not just the books?

[ Edited ]

The Potterverse phenomenon is the whole Harry Potter thing

just for starters......

  • The worldwide success of the books, millions of copies sold, midnight release parties, languages they were translated into.
  • JKR's popularity, the way we hung on every word she had to say and speculated over what they meant.
  • JKR's notoriety, the lawsuits, the Lexicon trial, the plagiarism/copyright infringement charges 
  • The WB site, with people on it from around the world at all hours, the speculations
  • Mugglenet, Veritalserum, The Leaky Cauldron.
  • The fan fiction & fan art sites
  • the adult involvement.
  • The hundreds of fan sites.
  • The movies and their success.  

I could keep going, but that's prob more than enuf.....................
