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.

Does anyone know what the smoke snakes in chapter 22 were for?

No one knows for sure, but there are loads of ideas.

Some people think that Dumbledore was asking for an explanation about Voldemort being in the snake and in Harry at the same time. They usually conclude that this means Harry is a Horcrux.

I, personally, believe that Dumbledore was asking about the nature of Voldemort's relationship with the snake and was concluding that Voldemort's soul was divided between his new body and that of the snake -- that they are the same being, but in essence divided.

But like I said above, no one knows for sure.

Re: snakes

Speaking of snakes, I just re-read the snake in the zoo episode from SS. That Boa Constrictor was huge! "Long enough to wrap a couple of times around Uncle Vernon's car"?

I hope he gets back from Brazil in time to take on Nagini in DH...:smileyhappy:

Re: snakes

harry, a Horcrux? Impossible! Harry has to defeat Voldemort, and Voldemort can't be defeated until all the Horcruxes are destroyed! If Harry destroyed himself, then he couldn't destroy Voldemort.

but Voldemort's soul divided between his new body & Nagini's, hey, I could go with that!
