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.

The light bulb in Tigger's goes on. Brilliant idea!

Hey, Tigger, holding your legs is not too bad. I can handle this.

Ok, got the wetsuit on and we're setting up by the caves. Tiggerbear knows where this little cave is.


 

 

You guy can't miss it there's a 20' display screen, a 10' long buffet table, and 40 of the fancy Atterondock deck chairs, not to mention a ems bus, and the markets bright green and blue trucks. Just keep away from the hole with the lights surrounding it.

 

(taps head) Bright idea. I just sent the gps coordinates to the direction finders I put in everyone's vehicles. Just follow your tomtoms.

 


 

We're almost there .Lu and I are Traveling together..I think I see you..BIG SCREEN  Wow..Its really  dark..Oh good Lights..camera.action..Looks like a movie set we are pulling up. ...I think Patti strolled over,she lives so close she has a Lge  Iced Tea.....Jim is having a snack..and A Tall Glass of something  I want one...Make that 2 Luanne wants one too...

Hop in quick. I have the directions from Tigger on my GPS.

Man look at that screen!. OK, I am heading straight for the buffet.

Meet you at the adirondack chairs.

Man, look at this buffet.

Tigger, you know how to put on a spread.

And cocktails!

Hope Tigger and maxcat didn't fill up on cocktails before their adventure.
