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.

Sugarplum Dead (Death on Demand Series #12)  

Tied Up in Tinsel (Roderick Alleyn Series)  

 

I have The Christmas Crimes at Puzzel Manor, but I haven't read it in a while - it was fun, though!  I also have a version of Rest You Merry, but it's only a booklet of a short story, which I guess she later expanded into a novel.  The one I have is a humorous story, but there's no mystery.

Re: Mysteries for the Holidays

I'm reading Cat Bearing Gifts and of course, The Christmas Carol. I also like any Christmas mystery by Anne Perry.

Re: Mysteries for the Holidays

Oh, gee this is fun. I recognize a lot of the books being listed here as ones I've read, but there are a lot I know I haven't--yet.

 

RyanG, I followed the link for An English Murder and found that the book is selling for $50.00 or more, secondhand!!!! That is too steep for my budget, so I did a search from my library site and now have it on reserve.
