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.

I would have to say, phoneboy, riffraff, nallia, yocalif or deemure. I would have said you Doreenpv, but your going to be gone. But I bet we see the first thread from phoneboy.

I'm not sure about rooftops, but I suspect that when it arrives we will see at least a dozen new threads created here announcing it.  :smileywink:

Oh, and then dozens more discussing it.

 

And finally, probably a dozen more denouncing it.  :smileyhappy:

No guarantees, since I don't get much headway it depends if I'm opening or closing, but if I get some information about the release date/time, I'll try to give you all a suggestive heads up to, ahem, keep your nookcolors on, plugged in, and WiFi ready if I feel it wouldn't cause problems.

Aww, that's so great of you, thanks!  I don't remember who it was last time, but we had an someone tell us when the employees were told to update all of their floor models for the last update.  So we knew to look for the update.  :smileyhappy:

Welcome to the madness. :smileyvery-happy:

 

I know what you are talking about! If I bring mine out and my daughter see's it she WANTS it. She loves flipping from the book to the main page so she can pick something else. The read to me books are her favorites.

 

Have a great time with your NC when you get to use it! :smileyvery-happy:

Thank you so much. If anything we can def be on the look out. This thread reminds me of Adele's song "Rumor Has It"
