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. On May 1, we’re saying 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.

Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

I love books by Carl Weber, Terry McMillan, Mary B. Morrison, etc.  Looking for friends to swap books with.  I love my Nook, but it's becoming an expensive habit.

Re: Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

LOL.... I second that "addicting habit" motion.  As you know I am definitely interested but I am wondering if it is easier to start it as a book club on this site?  I will look into that and follow-up with you.

Re: Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

I agree it's becoming expensive.  I can't believe it's almost cheaper buying a DTB than an ebook.  I would luv to swap as soon as I get rid of some of these DTB I have on hand.

Re: Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

I would be interested in joining a book club.  Did you start a book club featuring African American literature?  If so, how do I join?  If not, when will one be started?

Re: Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

OK, so we all seem to be interested in joining an AA book club; does anyone have any idea on how to get it started?  If so, we could do it as soon as possible!

Re: Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

I think that we should pick a book and then just read.  Not sure of how many times a month everyone wants to check in to discuss it.  Or will we just read the whole book and discuss it at end of the month?

Re: Looking for friends to swap African American Fiction

Hello guys.... I just decided to stop by and check this post again and noticed there were quite a few new entries!  We did get that book club started and have just started our first selection on 1/1/2011.  You can find us on Facebook under A.A.N.B.R (African-American Nook Book Reading) Club or our email, aanbrclub@yahoo.com.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
