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: would you rather??

ok, this'll be my last post of the day:
i think i would rather want to see .. (screws up face, this is a hard one!)ok, sirius come back.. because actually harry's dearest wish wasnt to go back to godric's hollow.. his wish is a parent's love, real and solid. (but i also wanna see dumby come back too!)

ok.. would you rather....
have kreacher or dobby dead?hah!

Re: would you rather??

oooooo this is a tough one. I also think that I would choose Sirius. It would have been nice to see both of them come back. I agree that Sirius would have been more important for it to have been Sirius.

As for Kreacher and Dobby well I didn't really like either of them to tell you the truth. They were both annoying. JMO.

Why does it have to end?

Re: would you rather??

i personally would rather Sirius came back from the dead...this may be affected by my continuous love for him since the third book, (Snape barely rivals padfoot in this aspect), and Harry deserves his return, i think.But i suppose we can't have everything: Voldy gone moldy, AND Serious' return....

And i would rather her write another HP book---nothing will ever surpass Harry, even if it is written by Jo

Would you rather her write another book on the series or have her write continuing with the story of albus (harrys son)?

Re: would you rather??

I would love to have Sirius back, Love DD no doubt but I think his mission with Harry was concluded, with Sirius I feel that Harry would get that parent figure he never had. As for Dobby or Kreacher, gotta love Dobby. And for a new series from Jo, definitly another HP. There is so much more that can be done with that series, it would be ashame not to offer the fans something else to read in that aspect.

OK here goes Would you rather have Wormtail return or Lucius Malfoy dead?? hmm even I don't know.

Wormtail return: Lucius is a creep, but the Malfoy family has been torn apart enough.

Re: would you rather??

I know my love for Dobby never wavered. He was never annoying to me!
And i would have Fawks, as a small revenge for dd. Besides, buckbeak has had his shining moment, in HBPwhen he saves harry/attacks snape.

I wouldn't feel so bad for Draco, besides he would not be alone.
I would have to say that I would rather Nagini been killed by buckbeak. He became like a friend of Harry's since Sirius had him so long, so it would make sense to have him do it.

I'd like to see Sirius come back. Harry deserved a happy home for once and Sirius could have given that to him.

I'd rather have another HP book too!!!

Would you rather see Draco and Harry talk things out (yes, I said talk, all you biased fanfic writers) or see Snape, Lily, and James (somewhere somehow) settle things?

Re: would you rather??

i would rather snape lilly and james talk things out. we have been and seen alot og things happen between harry and draco, so if they just talked things out it wouldnt be that interesting. we havnt had much interaction with lilly james and snape. only through the memories i think it would be alot more fun :smileywink:

would you rather dumbledore come back to kill voldemort or have lupin stay alive to see the battle between voldemort and harry

dumbledore, duh! because then he could help harry and explain more things.
