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: Got Books?

I'm glad you like the erasers - I've been trying to find little things (like the pins I included a few times last year) to spice up the packages.

Re: Got Books?

I think doing occasonal book reviews is a great idea!! I only review books I LOVE, and am dying to share with friends. Sounds like a fun idea.

I used to review books over at Romance: B(u)y the Book (before it went on permanent hiatus), but I am more comfortable promoting (and reading!) than reviewing. But you are all welcome to post your reviews here any time you want!

It's VERY quiet today so the first three people (in addition to Eadie, who has already commented) who post a comment on Dee J. Adams' thread today will get an extra treat from me!

Re: Got Books?

That's two - Catwoman and Eadie. 

 

Two down, two to go! There's no limit to the number of people who can qualify for Got Books? (scroll back to the beginning of this thread for more details), but this is an extra because it's been so dead today. 

 

Go for it!

Re: Got Books?

Now we have Eadie, Fricka-slash-Catwoman and GS2991. And maybe one more - not sure if the other commenter is there because she saw this. 

 

GS, send me your mailing address in a personal message here.

 

If any of you are reading this and would like to join in the fun, send me a personal message with YOUR mailing address and I'll add you to my list. This is my personal mailing list only - no one else sees it. You might get Valentine's or Halloween or the occasional holiday card from me but that's it. And Got Books?, of course, if you comment at least three times a month on author threads here.

Re: Got Books?

Hi Becke and all,

It's been a while since I have posted anything...not enough hours in the day!

 

I received a great assorment of books from you Becke and thank you very much.  I really think I need to get back into my leisure reader mode but right now everything I read seems to be technical and not much fun.  I think I will need better time management (or less work?) between work and play.

 

I received a card from Denis Swanson regarding a book signing with a couple of our other authors next month near me.  She has a new series coming out!  Release date of March 6th? I believe. 

 

I will need to take some more "me time" and catch up with everything.

 

THanks for the books

 

J

Great to see you! I read Denise's new book and it's really good!
