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: Author Misa Ramirez aka Melissa Bourbon Ramirez

NAL published A Magical Dressmaking mystery series and they liked Melissa Bourbon, my maiden name which made my parents very happy!  Then when it was time to release the newest Lola Cruz mystery, I wanted to bridge the names, so kep the Melissa Bourbon and added the Ramirez to connect from Misa Ramirez.

Re: Recipes

:smileyhappy:  And Lola's recipes are SO good.  Based on my mother in law's cooking, and she's a great cook.

Re: Guest Blog - An Interview with One of Misa's Characters

Hi, Misa, I loved your blog and I can relate to the sewing only for me, it is knitting. My mother taught me to knit. I was a difficult student as I'm left-handed and she had to teach me as a mirror image. I learned how to do the basics and took a big step forward and made my first sweater. It fit perfectly and Mom was so proud of me as I was determined to finish. I'm interested in your series and I will check it out.

Re: Guest Blog - An Interview with One of Misa's Characters

What a great memory, Maxcat!  I can imagine how difficult it would be to learn (and teach) as a mirror image.  Hope you do check out the Magical Dressmaking series and enjoy it!

Welcome Melissa: Enjoyed your blog. I love to sew - I will definitely be checking out your books. I just recently got my sewing machine out. I lost 55 lbs. over the last couple of years so I have been taking in some of my clothes. That's a good thing though! Your recipes look awesome. Love to cook, so I'll have to try some of your recipes too. Hope you enjoy your visit with us!

55 pounds? Wow, wish I could say that!
