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.

Film Adaptations of Austen's Other Novels

[ Edited ]
Many members like to discuss the various film adaptations of Austen's novels.  We have a thread for Mansfield Park adaptations, specifically, but perhaps there are film adaptations of other Austen novels that folks would like to talk about as well.

Re: Film Adaptations of Austen's Other Novels

Connie, Thanks for the Thread!
I've read all Austens books and seen at least one adaption of each in film...
The Colin Firth BBC adaption of Pride and Prejudice is by far the best adaption.. and although there are a few differences from the book it is so close... and I think that Jennifer and Colin are outstanding.. they portray the characters so well...
Mr. Collins of course makes you want to ring his neck.. although the Mr. Collins in the Kiera Knightly version got under your nerves too..
