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: Old Nook Board Proverb:

Key

 

A key, ornate, an heirloom.

What does it open?

A treasure, lost?

A heart, locked?

A key, brass, an antique.

 

A key or the key?

Resting in a hand.

Small and white,

Trembling with fear

Of the known or the unknown?

 

The key, patinaed with age,

Its origins, a mystery,

Or so it is thought.

One knows, but no one

Pauses, listens, or sees.

 

The key, in a hand,

Small and trusting,

No words spoken,

A path found by

A simple verse, but not of words.

 

The key, a mystery, to a mystery?

Of the mystery, of the origins,

One still knows,

Another how to find the one

Hidden away at the top of a stair.

 

The key to the key is key.

A verse of no words,

A path with no sight.

Senses of the dark,

Follow them to a corner, forgotten.

 

The key to the key,

In a dark place is to be found.

A continuous, silver round.

A verse of no words.

A path of no sight.

 

The key in a small hand, rests.

A fluttering heart,

A dark butterfly drifting, dancing.

Bright eyes, watching,

Suddenly seeing, understanding.

 

The key warmed by a hand, glowing.

An answer to a mystery waiting.

Small feet running, racing

After the dark butterfly, dancing 'round.

The path of no sight, found.

'Of wings and words and dancing milkweed seeds...'
