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: Lyra's Oxford - Spoiler Alert

I know I missed something in this book. I don't get the connection of all of the illustrations to the short text. i feel like there is something obvious I'm missing? Any help out there?

gabesmom--Have you finished the trilogy? (I assume you have if you're reading this one?).

Re: Lyra's Oxford - Spoiler Alert

Yes - I finished the trilogy shortly after The Amber Spyglass came out. So when Lyra's Oxford was published, I jumped at it. I don't understand the postcard sent by Mary Malone, or the cruise line reference to Smyrna (on a totally different topic I am reading middlesex and Smyrna is very important in that book.) The map of Oxford relates to the story. But I know I'm missing something!
