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: Three Cheers for Moby Dick & Fanuzzir!

Hurrah for Moby! Hurrah for Bob! Hurrah for Starbuck! Pass the blubber.

I notice that Moby Dick is top of the Classic Literature Clubs post poll with 1776 posts, with all of the British Classics together only polling 1626 and all of the American classics together only polling 1412!! IMO this not only because it is a wonderful whale of a book but because Bob has steered us through the voyage of it so skillfully. Well Done Cap'n!

Splice the Mainbrace everyone, hold out the socket ends of your harpoons and I'll pour ye a dram:smileyvery-happy:

Re: Three Cheers for Moby Dick & Fanuzzir!

Unlike Ishmael, we not only survived the journey but came back with more friends than when we left. You all gave a deeply affectionate reading of an author and book that most have thought inhumanly difficult. Congratulations to you! The posts show that people wanted to join you.
