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: June at Barnes & Noble's Mystery Forum

Rats! I was looking forward to June being Cozy month, but, to quote my favorite language mangler, Sam Goldwyn, " It floats off my back like a duck." Don't think I'm familiar with any of the authors you've got listed here, becke, so once again, my reading horizons are sure to be expanded. Looking forward to meeting new authors here!

I'm sorry to change things around, Fricka! I've got Lori Foster's Reader Author Get Together at the beginning of the month, and mid-month my husband and I are driving down to Florida for a brief visit with our daughter. Even though I can go online when I'm traveling, it's difficult to keep up with a busy "theme" month on the road. In case cozy authors stop by thinking June is still cozy month, I will post (or repost) an Introduce Yourself thread.

 

I do bring back authors who have become friends (with me and with the Mystery Forum crew) but I do want to keep introducing you to new authors, too. Hopefully we've got some of each this year, even though the balance shifts from month to month.

I have The Girl Below for review in July so I'll be excited to see the discussion as well.
