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: May is the Month of International Crime - Favorites?

You might want to re-read a couple of those, then, becke! The first book is Murder at Bishop's Keep. That brings Kate over from America to work for her Aunt Ardleigh, and places her in the neighborhood of Marsden Manor, which is being visited by Sir Charles Sheridan, an amateur criminologist and naturalist.

You missed one!

 

The Black Cat (Richard Jury Series #22) 

(unless you were limiting yourself to ones available in paperback)

 

That one is next on my mystery TBR list!
