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.

Old Nook Board Proverb:

To read is to know the Nook, and to read the Nook is to know...Quiet what you know depends upon your Nook.

Re: Old Nook Board Proverb:

Acquire a bedtime story or faerie tale for your Nook.  Read it.  Dream...See where it takes you.

Books they flow, flow onto Nook like the streams and rivers flow to the mighty seas.  The wise, they follow the flow...They read, they know.  :smileywink:

Humor is the shiny object; it glimmers and beckons across these boards.  Wield it well for it is powerful.
