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.

Hello

I've just joined and am thrilled that I will be able to "talk" with others about books that I enjoy. I seem to tear through mystery authors fairly quickly and would love any suggestion on some really intense authors.

Hi Fortinzio - welcome to the Mystery Book Club!  As you can see, we're  very relaxed here -- more like a mystery chat group than a traditional book club.  I'm sure you will be getting LOTS of recommendations, but first it would help if you tell us some of the authors you enjoy.  The classics - Conan Doyle, Christie?  Detective mysteries?  Cozies? Thrillers? Romantic suspense? Espionage? Funny mysteries?  Tell us what you like and we'll give you suggestions!

Re: Hello

Dean Koontz has been a favorite of mine for years. I've read all of his books already though. I just ran through all of Lisa Jackson's books as well. I enjoy well written thrillers. I like authors who develop both the "good" and "evil" characters. Too many times the killer is an enigma rather than a true character in the story. I'm a psychology major so I like to understand both sides.
