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.

Movie

I just realized that this movie opens in five days. Here are five trailers you can watch and some other stuff: http://www.loveinthetime.com/

Maybe it is time to get this discussion going again. I only made it as far as the first section before I got distracted to others things, but this is a book worth reading and the film clips were intriguing. I didn't get very far so I didn't realize that this was also a story about young love and all that lead up to the first section. This is a good night to curl up with a good book in front of a nice warm fire.

Personally, I can't wait for the movie. The writing is so lush and pulsating, I'm interested to see (literally!) what they can do with it.

And yes! Anyone else out there still reading the book? Come back and let's chat!

Re: Movie

I haven't seen the movie yet but the early reviews don't look promising.

Re: Movie

I read the book about a year ago and I'm a little weary of the movie. Sometimes you just can't make the transition from book to movie. It just doesn't hold the same intensity and passion that the book conveys.

Hi Oz,

I think that's a matter of taste. Personally, I prefer to have read the book first. Over the years, my "movies that were better than the book" list is pretty short.

That said, I can absolutely enjoy a movie if I haven't read the book.

What's your experience with this?
