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.

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.

Dear Reader:

This is the best book of its kind for people searching for a career. For those who want to discover what they're best at, whether it's your first, second, or third career. In fact, 8 times is the average number for changing careers in a lifetime.

You write: "I have worked in various areas in the field of education for quite a long time and would like to discover what I will enjoy doing that is completely different." Good for you! Just remember, you will enjoy working at what you discover you're best at - most of all. Get back to me, after you have completed The National Career Aptitude Test in my best seller, Discover What You're Best At. Then you will have more knowledge about your strengths, your talents, your capabilities, career-wise and where to apply them. Best, Linda Gale

Re: Dear Reader:

Thank you for your response. I have the book with the yellow cover written by both Barry and Linda Gale which is titled Discover What You're Best At - The National Career Aptitude System and Career Directory. I took the tests in it and scored Very Superior in Business and High Average in Social. The other tests were Low to Average. This looks like a different book than the one you are currently using although the title is similar. Do I need to purchase your current book to be involved in these discussions?

Older book

Thank you for your response. I have the book published in 1982 with the yellow cover written by both Barry and Linda Gale which is titled Discover What You're Best At - The National Career Aptitude System and Career Directory. I took the tests in it and scored Very Superior in Business and High Average in Social. The other tests were Low to Average. This is a different book than the one you are currently using although the title is similar. Do I need your current book to be involved in these discussions?

Re: Dear Reader:

Dear Reader:

No, you do not have to purchase the latest edition because the National Career Aptitude System in both books are the same. Barry Gale designed the tests so they would never have to be updated. The book you have is the same book as the one in the bookstores today. The only change is that Barry Gale deceased in 1988 so his name is not on the cover today and that there is a section on high tech that is not in your copy. Look forward to hearing from you again. Best, Linda Gale

Re: Dear Reader:

Absolutely not! The National Career Aptitude System is the same in both books. The more current book may have some short chapters of career advice written for the 1998 revised edition. But the main core of book is The Tests and System. That you have in the book that you purchased back then. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, linda Gale
