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.

What books did you give - or receive - for Christmas?

I received this one - and, amazingly, I didn't have it already!

What a great book and wonderful gift, becke. I did not receive one book as a Christmas present this year, but then, I did not give my brother a list of the books I would like, as he and my sister-in-law have their hands full with two new grandchildren. I guess, though, I could perhaps consider my copy of The Twelve Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen, as a Christmas present, as I bought it with the Barnes and Noble gift card they gave me earlier.

I'd say what you bought with a gift card should count! Are you feeling any better?

Some. At least my voice no longer sounds as though I am doing a bad impression of Minnie Mouse, but I am not sure if the infection has completely healed. I've run of out amoxicillin tabs now and am going to wait for a day or two before I decide whether to call for a refill or not. Antibiotics are great for stubborn bacterial infections, but they do leave me pretty weak and listless, so I'm hoping I am over the worst of it now. At least the sun is shining here today, which is cheering.

I hope you're on the mend now!
