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.

Hum... I was thinking... Do the books that you have with you make a very long list ? Because if you post it, I can see if I have them OR if i can order them QUICKLY from Cultura Bookstore ! What do you say ? (o_0) !


:-) Why, thank you! I like being a peach!

 

Hmm. Well, the problem is, most of the books I brought with me are Advance Reader Copies of books that will be featured here soon (either in blogs or author features). So they aren't available yet. 

 

You can get an idea of the books I have at home (and the books I've been reading) here:

It's not completely up to date - I'm always forgetting to add books I've read, and there's no way on earth I can add the books I've read in the past.

Oh, Becke, your shelf is simply awesome, but it is at the same time very frustating to me cause I cannot find any books at Cultura bookstore, except for The Help.

 

And I think I have Where Memories Lie by Crombie somewhere, a book that you have read 2 months ago ! I did read Water Like a Stone by her. You do like her books, don't you ?  :smileywink:

 

It's OK, dont worry... I'm sure that we soon are gonna be able to discuss a book. Maybe when you get back to your house, I'll say what I'm reading here and you will feel like reading it and then we will discuss that book...

 

Thank you for the link !

The problem with discussing a series book, like those you mentioned by Deborah Crombie, is you either have to start with Book One or have new readers who don't know all the things that led up the things in the most recent book. (Does that make sense?) For that reason it may be easier to pick a stand-alone book.

If you click my name here, you can see another of my reading lists here, as part of my B&N profile. I update it periodically but haven't done it recently. I do have several lists of my favorite mysteries (and other books) there, though.
