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.

Childhood book

My Grandad bought me a book when I was 5.

It is a series of short stories involving different children including Mandy, Caroline, Susan,Barry and Tim.:smileyhappy:

There are pencil drawn illustrations every few pages.

Example stories are Mandy's Umberella, Daddies office and the bus ride.

I still have the book but it has no spine or front and back cover.

I would love  see if I could buy this book again as it is falling to bits.

               Thanks :-)

Re: Childhood book

Does Tales of Oaktree Wood by Rene Cloake ring a bell?  I looked up (on google) what you mentioned and that's pretty much the only thing that came up.  Since you still have part of the book, try googleing the beginning phrase of a chapter (or something like that).  Google, or the Guetenburg project might have something.
