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.

BOOK REVIEW: "Tea Cozies" by the Guild of Master Craftsman

I am a tea drinker but only had the kettle for the stove.


Then I saw Tea Cozies and I knew that my kettle needed a friend.  I invested in a Brown Betty teapot and I now I can dress my pot up or down as I see fit.  The patterns run the gamut from sophisticated to whimsical to wacky.  Lions and sheep put in an appearance as well as a pattern for an elaborately knit rendering of a garden.  All to put on your teapot.


Some patterns are quite basic, good for a new knitter or one wanting to branch out and learn a bit of shaping.  Others, like the garden pattern, are quite complex.  All patterns use UK terms and definitions so double check your yarn weights and needle sizes before starting to avoid getting caught in translation.

Melissa W.
I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.
