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.

Why am I suddenly "anonymous"?

I've been reviewing NOOK books for almost a year. I've been careful to keep my reviews brief & to give pertinent commentary without spoiling stories for others. Suddenly a couple of weeks ago, I discovered that ALL of my previous book reviews have been converted to anonymous postings. I have friends who are interested in reading what I have to say, but they aren't on Facebook or Twitter & aren't Groupies. Why did I lose my identity & how can I get it back? -- Catherine Wakelyn (aka catwak)

Hey catwak,

 

We have made some changes to our review system recently, however I don't recall this being an expected result. 

 

I certainly apologize for the inconvenience, allow me some time to sort out whats happening.

 

Thanks!

Re: Why am I suddenly "anonymous"?

Thanks for getting back to me.

I have another question:  What is the meaning of a "subscription" to B&N "book clubs"?  I already have a login & password.  I'm really not interested in a service that carries a fee.  What does a subscription get me that I can't have without it?  (If you say easy access to this bulletin board, that would be a plus.  I have found it almost impossible to find on the website, but that may just be me!)
