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.

Re: Former Homicide Detective turned author releases nook-book...

Re:  Review without Reading

 

Lord knows, I'm not trying to censor anybody, and I don't even know what the individual posted (I have the whole "Etiquette" gang on my Ignore List, so I mercifully don't have to see any of their posts), but could we maybe move on and stop hijacking the thread?

 

I don't think there's any doubt anymore that a lot of us find the behavior reprehensible.

The funny thing is that thanks to EarthAngel the author has probably sold more books than he ever would have from his initial post.  :smileyhappy:


Hmmm, perhaps the author owes EarthAngelrn2003 a cut of his 'profits'? :smileysurprised:

No kidding! He must be loving this...

 

I have too many books to read currently but hope to carve out time to try this one.

 

I don't to heap more criticism on the person who initially objected to the book, but I would point out that the Bible if full of (probably) worse content and uses real names and locations. That's not a criticism of the Bible, because to me that's partly what makes the Bible authentic. Just sayin'.

Me either, and it seems to be spotty.  Some of them get through.  I those cases, I just read the posts I want to read, then hit "Show Thread as Read" and it clears the rest. :smileywink:
