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.

Thomas More: Man of Integrity

[ Edited ]
I think hearing the story of Sir Thomas More's life would inspire a person of any persuasion. I first learned about him when I read Robert Bolt's thought-provoking play, A Man for All Seasons, which I highly recommend:

You can see his famous portrait, by Hans Holbein the Younger, at The Frick Collection in New York City:

Re: Thomas More: Man of Integrity

There was also a very good film made in 1966 about More's life pmath, screenplay adaptation by Bolt:-

And More's Utopia might be a good book to discuss in the British Classics section.

(BTW we can now paste/type URLs onto the boards without having to put the HTML tags in - B&N techies have fixed it!)

A Man for All Seasons

[ Edited ]
I really enjoyed watching the 1988 adaptation, with John Gielgud as Cardinal Wolsey: have you seen it? Since the play is now a British classic, it would also be a good choice! Automatic conversion of URLs to links will certainly save us all time.
