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.

good for you hp rocks! As you can see, we have established a lot of ‘rooms’ that specializes on hp freaks needs!
*mrsRW curtsies…
we have the sorting hat! Introduce yourself to us!
And we also have the potter rehab! We’re all checked in the rehab , so we’d be free to discuss even through meds.
So good for you if you do that to people who diss HP.
You’re right. HP Rocks.

I can see it now. I'll be 95, sitting in my rocking chair...I'll say in a shaky voice to my ZetaMax3000 personal electronic assistant "Its 3:00, time for my daily read of the new HP postings." As I read the new posts, my dentures slip and fall out of my mouth banging on the keyboard...I accidentally post something positive about McGonagall. The board goes wild "FINALLY" MollyWobbles posts, "She's come round, no more cupcakes! Its all salted food from here on out". I grab my cane and beat my Zetamax3000 into a smoking heaping mess. "NEVA!!" I shout. Then the nursing home people come into my room and sedate me as usual at 3:15. "She's always barking on about McGonagall, she's the biggest nutjob we've got here!" : )

book nerd. music freak. movie fanatic.
major obsesser over so many things.

I love to read and write poetry/lyrics and short stories. The layers of music fascinates me. Someday, I want to do movie soundtracks, maybe, or teach. The book to movie transition fascinates me to the extreme. I've been mesmorized by the way Harry Potter and Twilight and so many others have been brought into movies is something I think I would love to do.

Re: dear connie, a petition

I would sign the petition for sure!! I have only just started the HP books and I come on here from time to time but am very timid because I'm afraid that I might come across a post that tells me something I have yet to read but once I have finished them all I would love to post comments about the characters and such with everyone else.

Re: dear connie, a petition

Welcome, krenea1! I have to say that you WILL see spoilers if you read this board. It's guaranteed. So, you might want to finish the books first if you don't want to know future plot points.

Reserving your humor is a sin. Truly. Every joke is sacred. Share the love.
