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.

Re: The facts behind the fiction

Dear Stephanie,
Carlos personality was built with some real characteristics and background of the "Javier Sierra" in his late 20's. Carlos is a young journalist full of new and original ideas, and I love to remember the powerful feelings and energy of those days,
That's why I love that character!

Best wishes,

Re: The facts behind the fiction


I don't think I'd recognize the person I was in my 20s! What I liked especially about Carlos is his questioning and his way of thinking. That I do remember about my younger self.
