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.

Metamorphosis

Ilana Said:

you can find me in the British Classics Book Club -- and, in January, leading the conversation about Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis and Other Stories.
-----------------------------------------

I wasn't sure where to put this question. I was planning on joining the Metamorphosis group. I was wondering if you will be just discussion Metamorphosis or the other short stories in the book as well? Also is there any other background material on Kafka that you would recommend getting and reading beforehand?

Hi Bucky
I am so glad you'll be joining us for Kafka. We'll be reading a handful of the stories from the B&N Classics edition of The Metamorphosis and Other Stories, but because people will have different editions, I'm sure we'll touch some of his letters and parables too. We'll _certainly_ discuss Metamorphosis, so if you want to start reading there, that would be great.
I look forward to hearing from you in the group,
Ilana

Re: Ilana: Metamorphosis needs its own heading like Moby Dick

It won't be a good idea to read it here Ilana because this thread is still under the heading of Frankstein.

Fanuzzir managed to get a spot for Moby Dick before it was due to be discussed, perhaps you could get B&N techies to do the same for you?

Not to worry, Choisya. Both The Metamorphosis and Other Stories and The Jungle will have their own dedicated book club spaces. You should see each of them on the site shortly, with a little bit of an introduction about the next month's discussion. As we get closer to January 8, the full range of discussion topics will be posted.
