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.

Discuss FNKC as a Whole: Georgia and James

What do you think of Georgia's decision regarding James? Are some of his claims (ex: teaching Dakota about race) justified? How might things have been different for them?

Re: Discuss FNKC as a Whole: Georgia and James

James is her father.  The race is something that introduces Dakota to new people, ways, and ideas.  It is just not something her mother is use to or in her sphere.  James is not showing off or taking her away from her mother or anything like that.  I think that he is opening his world to his daughter.  That should not be taking away from him or Dakota.

Re: Discuss FNKC as a Whole: Georgia and James

Georgia was hurt by James.  The only thing that he left her with was Dakota.  That said James was smart in wanting to teach Dakota about himself, race being a part of it.  Dakota will have to deal with her race and while it hadn't been an issue it is part of her.  On the cusp of becoming more her own person in her teens learning about her roots- Georgia as well as James- will help her with her identity.  Plus I think James gets the realization of the great women he left behind- Georgia and Dakota.
