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.

Re: The Christmas Tree

My loyal merry nobles and all asembled.

 

Gather at the far end of the north garden towards the edge of The Great Forest and come see our festive tree. I traveled high into the mountains and managed to solicit the assistance of two fine giants please give a warm thanks (as well as the promised 3 bbq' whole cows and all the hot chocolate they could drink, payment requested) to the most fearsome Grimmjowl and the furry terror Breaksrock. We've transported a wonderful live blue fir, it's well over 8 stories high and it close to three of my arm spans around. It's been planted so we would always have our holiday tree.

 

If the decorating committee would like to join us, we could get started. I have the faeries promised help of the firefly lights. My troll's stained glass star is ready for the top. So bring on the ornaments!

These are JUST like some of the ones I grew up with!

 

 

I think this would be an appropriate Wordsmithonia ornament, as well:

Re: The Christmas Tree

Along with the lovely Faberge collection we displayed over Easter we found many beautiful egg ornaments in the dungeon as well, so I would like to donate some of them to the tree.

Re: The Diamond Christmas Tree

Wow!  That's one heck of a tree!  Sorry, I'm just getting to the rest of these posts, now that I can sit back and relax a bit, drinking my Earl Grey tea in my new B&N mug that Santa brought me, and viewing these pictures on my new monitor!   I have to admit, I didn't put up a tree this year, so I'm enjoying all of yours.  :smileyhappy:  Thanks so much for sharing, Becke and everyone!
