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.

Final Week

As we begin our final week discussing James Rollin's The Judas Strain I'd like to thank you to all of you who participated in the discussion. Your thoughtful posts and insight into Jim's characters has made this an excellent group.

Please take this last week to ask Jim any final questions you might have for him, and to post any more ideas or insights you had into the novel or any of the issues surrounding it.

Hope to see you all in many future groups- check out September's offerings!

Re: Final Week

Jim,

I'm moderating with J.A. Jance - a new J.P. Beaumont called Justice Denied which was excellent - she has a great sense of humor, too, and a debut novel by Sarah Addison Allen called Garden Spells which I started this afternoon at about 4 p.m. and finished in about four hours! I positively stormed both of these books- I couldn't put either of them down. The Allen book is Southern Magical Realism... and it's truly a happy book - it was a joy to read. We also have Lisa See and Jasper Fforde joining us. Here is the link to the Coming Soon page: http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/bn?category.id=ComingSoon

Re: Final Week

Sounds great, Stephanie! I love JA Jance and Jasper Fforde (folks, if you haven't read Jasper F. you truly must...especially if you're a book lover. Pick up a copy of the first Thursday Next volume, The Eyre Affair, and you'll be thanking me!)

I will have to order a copy of Garden Spells. I'm a big fan of Southern fiction (especially Carson McCullers). Upon such a recommendation, it sounds well worth checking out.

Jim
