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: Looking for a good book to read

:I highly recommend any book by Alexander McCall Smith...but start with his No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series which is now being televised on HBO weekly.

His dialogue is witty and fast paced with tons of humor thrown in........when done with this series start:  44 Scotland Street neighborhood novels. Most of his books are short in size but tall in substance.

Who is Jerome Christopher King?  (My Google search isn't being either effective or efficient.)

Peppermill, if you do a google search on Jerome Christopher King, he floods the first two pages of google..lol.  He's a horror fiction and philosophy author.  I think you need to search by the full name or the book title(s).

Re: Looking for a good book to read

Sandra -- Do you have one of those that you'd recommend for biographical information?

 

None of the book entries  that I looked at had biographical information, but I must admit I haven't been diligent about going through a  lot of them.  Much of those first two pages seemed to be book seller entries before fading to people with similar names, but not clear that they were this author. I fully expected to find his own web page, a Wiki entry, or an interview.  If they are there, I missed them.
