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.

Authors! Readers! Post Your Holiday Greetings Here!

[ Edited ]

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where old friends and new could check in and post virtual Christmas cards - or wishes for whatever holiday you celebrate. I don't want to leave anyone out!

 

This is to get us started!

Thanks  for the thread Becke, 

 

Merry Christmas to all my mystery friends but I'll have to copy your image mine only shows up as a blue question mark when I do it. LOL

Happy holidays, Becke and everyone else! I thought this Google image was perfect since I have a crafting mystery series coming out -- which BTW, even though the official release date isn't until Jan. 8th, it seems that ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY GLUE GUN is already being shipped at BN.com and that other online vendor whose name must not be mentioned on this site. :smileywink:

Thought I would be a bit different and offer a Southwestern-themed Christmas here.

Wishing everyone Feliz Navidad! Prospero Ano Felicidad!

Fricka - I love the luminarias they have in Albuquerque at Christmas time. That's my only experience of a Southwestern Christmas!
