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.

Re: The Next First Look Book Club

pen, (shhhh, I'm telling everyone that I fell at my daughter's, only you and I and every one else at the Hunka Monka know what really happened  when I grabbed a hunka-hunka and his old lady let me have it and took a chunka-chunka outta me. ;-)  )

 

Yes everyone I am feeling better since my fall at my daughter's.

And pen, you don't have to go, in fact let's just say the heck with the rest of the world and just stay down here. I'm sure that the management will graciously let us stay rent free for the entertainment value we bring.

I know, he's kind of cute, isn't he? My son has a hippo collection - I think it's growing on me. In more ways than one!

 If any of you like your mysteries scary, you might want to stop in and visit with today's guest author, J.T. Ellison. She's a relatively new author but she's developed quite a following already. These are her books:

 

 

All the Pretty Girls

 

14

 

Judas Kiss

 

 

The Cold Room

Re: The Next First Look Book Club

Only if they get down here and join the act.

If you want any percentage, you must get down here and participate.

Becke are you still here, I can't find you.

P.S. I was willing to work for free room. free food and free umbrella drinks.

But I will take the money, too.

Re: The Next First Look Book Club

I'm getting sunburned!  I think I'll put some clothes on, and head back to the castle to carve an ice sculpture.  Then grab a cup of tea and watch the Olympics in front of a blazing fire. 

Later, maters.  Stay out of trouble, if you can!

Re: The Next First Look Book Club

That's beautiful, Becke, but it really belongs in the Kingdom, on the front lawn with the rest of the sculptures...this is going to melt, here on the beach!  We're having a Winter Festival right now, and ice scupture is part of the celebration.  I know how busy you are, so I'm very glad you could work in a little time to whip this small feat up!  I'll see if I can move it to the right board!  :smileyhappy:  Thanks so much for thinking of us!

Some people don't know how to have fun.

I don't think they will recognize us. pen21

Re: The Next First Look Book Club

Kathy,

The cabana boys sent an ice sculpture to the kingdom.

Hope it doesn't melt on the way. They worked very hard.

They put this one on the beach. Remember when we all did the cartwheels.
