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.

Rita - Your life sounds pretty exciting. What's your average day like?


Exciting? Not really.  I generally begin the day having coffee outside and watering the plants. With so much rain lately no need for watering. If there is yard work, I do that early until the mosquitoes find me. While I’m working, I listen to an audio book. I’ll write for anywhere from 2-4 hours a day. I do skip a day here and there.  I walk on the beach in the later afternoon. Much cooler and another chance to listen to a book.  I can go down to the dock with an adult beverage and watch the sunset. The rain has put a crimp in beach walks and sunsets. I’m not on any set schedule and pretty much do what I want when  I want, which can be dangerous.  Days I don’t want to interrupted I turn off the phone, turn up the music until it rattles the windows and write.        


I can't believe I'm saying this, but we can use some rain. Normally it's VERY wet here in the spring into early summer, but not this year!

 

I like your idea of turning off the phone, but I can't work with music on, much as I love it. I always want to stop and sing along.


I wish we could send TS Debby to Colorado. My heart hurts for the people there. Were I live we are still behind in rain. I'm happy we got what we did.

Music with lyrics only for love scenes. Everything else is movie sound tracks. Sound tracks from action films are great to write your own action scenes to. Keeps the tempo moving.
