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.

Thursday's Dilemma?

Thursday is imprisoned in a moral dilemma! What could be worse punishment? Is there a genre or tradition--or even a particular plot--that would be your readerly nightmare?

Re: Thursday's Dilemma?

My readerly nightmare would be to be stuck in one of those friend/love triangles that are in so many stories. You know those stories where character A loves character B but character B sees A as just a good friend and really loves character C... and somewhere in the story there is a quantity of misunderstands the the love triangle gets all rearranged. I think if I got stuck in one of those stories I would want to go jump in a river... which in the process would rearrange the love triangle again and it would just keep going!

Re: Thursday's Dilemma?

I would really hate to be stuck in a Romance novel. Sorry if anyone out there likes them. I personally would hate all that mushiness. I need excitement.
