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.

Dear Readers,
It has been a great pleasure and an honor to get to know you all over the last year and a half, and I have enjoyed our conversations tremendously. But as the lights of Hanukkah are now dwindling, it falls to me to announce that our club, too, is ending. My thanks to all of you who made these conversations so interesting, and especially to the authors who gave so generously of their time. It was a very special experience for me, and I'm sure for many readers as well. The board will be up until January 5, 2009, so if you want to post a good-bye of your own, please do so.

Keep your eye on Nextbook for future Jewish Encounters titles as they are published, and I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have.

All the best,
Inspired Bibliophile

Re: Farewell

Although I did not post often, I did visit the board. I am sorry to see it end because it was nice to have a special place for us to have a voice. I had hoped a discussion might even develop which could help explain the varied Jewish positions in this middle eastern crisis.

Thank you for all the work you did on our behalf.
