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.

It is 849 pages long. I am 1/3 thru and it is a page-turner. I have to go to the doctors but I can't wait to get back to the book.

I have finished this book and it was indeed magical and strange. It kept me reading it as I wanted to know more especially towards the end.

Original Sin (Adam Dalgliesh Series #9)  

 

Since I just read Cover Her Face, I thought I would finally tackle Original Sin, which has been on my TBR shelf for years.  It seems daunting - over 400 pages, I think!  I'm pretty sure they did this one on Mystery!, too; in this case, the plot does ring a bell.

Re: What are you reading right now?

Becke, 

 

I didn't know it was the second book in a series when I started it, but I couldn't put it down after I started it. It's definetly a noir book set in Detroit and invovles gangsters, the teamsters, blackmail, murder and just about anything else you can think of.  I really enjoyed it.  Sorry that's not the best description but my brain is a little fried right now from work.

Here's a must-read for fans of Sherlock Holmes. In this anthology, several well-known authors have each contributed a Sherlock Holmes story. The anthology kicks off with one by ALAN BRADLEY, one of this week's featured guests. Alan also wrote another, much more controversial, Holmes book:

Finished 11/22/63 over the weekend. I enjoyed it very much. Time travel is an interesting concept to me. I enjoyed following George as he adjusted to the 50's and 60's and his quest to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating JFK. Stephen King did a great job of allowing us to watch Oswald along with George and feel the tensions in Dallas during these conflicting times in our history. Couldn't wait to see how the book would end and was not disappointed. Although, I find Stephen King's books a bit wordy, I found this book to hold my attention until the very end!

It does sound good. The trouble is, with so many books in my TBR pile, I don't know if I want to read something that long.

Re: What are you reading right now?

I tend to take my time with anthologies, reading them one story at a time. I've read four or five stories in A STUDY IN SHERLOCK, but I'm not going to finish this book all in one go. I have Alan Bradley's new book on order, so I'll be reading that one later this week.

Hi Maxcat, it this one a re-read for you. I love Agatha and I tried more than one time to read this novel and just couldn't get into it.

Do you like it, is it just me.

Eadie, thanks so much. This one is definitely going into my pile. It sounds like it would make a great General Fiction club read, I may have ask Mr. King if he'd be willing to visit the forum, we'll see after I read it.

These are ebook pre orders. I have been waiting for more ebooks from P.D James. I started reading her books in paperback and then in ebook format, but found out not all her books are ebooks yet. They are slowly coming across the pond, but at least they are coming. I also like Ann Granger mystery books and she has written many !  But only two are available in ebook in English the rest are in German.     :smileyhappy:

Re: What are you reading right now?

[ Edited ]

I love PD James mysteries. I started with "An Unsuitable Job for a Woman" and always wished there were more Cordelia Grey books. I've also read all the Dalgliesh books. As far as the others I really really liked "Innocent Blood". I tried to read "The Children of Men" and could not get into it. I later saw the movie and didn't really enjoy it either.
