Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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: Restricted Kid Access

I am getting a kick out of reading this thread - mainly because my kids are finally older and out of the house and I don't have to deal with it anymore! :smileyhappy: Seriously though, I feel for those who do still have to deal with it.


Locking down the internet was a constant challenge at my house when my son was younger. No matter what I did -  password protecting computers, locking the tower in a cabinet, locking the study door, etc - he still would find a way to get online and into stuff he shouldn't. I think it became a big game to him. I even resorted to taking my mouse and keyboard with me when I left the house!


I am just so glad those days are over and someday he will have his own kids to annoy him.

Me too, on both counts.  I am cussing right now on you having to defend yourself for offering advice that the poster may have needed.

Yup. Deja Vu!
