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: A Message from Penguin - NEW!!

Penguin is branching out - did you know they have a Pinterest page?

 

http://pinterest.com/penguinbooksusa/

 

They also have T-SHIRTS now! Here are the deets from Penguin:

 

With Inauguration Day coming up on January 20th, Penguin Classics is moving beyond books and releasing a line of high-end t-shirts based on our six-volume Penguin Civic Classics series, which features the great essential texts of American civic life.

 

The politically engaged and design-inspired will love these “Common Sense” and “Join, or Die” tees, designed and made in the U.S., with art drawn from early American ephermera and reinterpreted in modern graphic style by Gregg Kulick.  All shirts are 100% cotton and available in men’s/unisex or women’s cuts, in black or cream.

 

Check out the t-shirts here.  For those of your readers that want to be inauguration chic but don’t want to be limited to Obama’s souvenir store, these Ts are the perfect answer!

Re: A Message from Penguin - NEW!!

I do like the looks of those T-shirts, becke.

 

However, I have one major complaint about Penguin's books.In reading some books published by Obsidian, which is a subsidiary group of Penguin, besides Penguin books proper, I have not been able to discover the name of the cover artist or designer.  You know me, from previous comments I've made in this forum, and how important I consider cover art to be when I'm considering buying a book. If any of the executive staff members from Penguin would happen to be visiting here, I respectfully request that the non-acknowledgment of cover art  be changed.Is it too much to ask for that information to be made available to the reader of these books?

Getting back to the T-shirts, I hasten to add that I for one would be interested in buying a T-Shirt with the cover art from some of the cozy mysteries published by Penguin/Obsidian.

I sent this link to their publicity department, so hopefully someone will see this.
