Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

My husband is a very nice man--I've mentioned that in a previous post. He's been my daughter's father since she was thirteen. She's now thirty five, a widow for over a year, and the single mother of a toddler. But my husband has a hard time seeing her as a "grown up." Beau's reactions to Kelly are, as people have said, complicated by guilt from being a "bad" father when she was little and an inability to let her be her own person.

I wonder why fathers especially are like this. They want to see their little girls, stay as little girls and their eyes deceive them when they are quite grown.

I think the Attorney General had had far too much to drink and said what he did inadvertently.

LOL! He sure did have a bit to drink. I think he was seeing all sorts of scenes "flash before his eyes" too- which might have caused him to seek solace in his wineglass.
