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.

Lost Memoirs: PBS Austen adaptations

[ Edited ]
Hi All,

Just want to make sure everyone knows that PBS is running Austen on screen for the next month or so. One has already aired, but we still have plenty left!

This note can also be used as a thread if any want to discuss them!

Here's a link to the schedule.

PBS Austen adaptations

Thanks for the link. I'm looking forward to Northanger Abbey as it's the only Austen novel I've never seen on film.

ITV is also premiering a four-part series entitled Lost in Austen for its UK audiences this year. Perhaps it will eventually find its way here as these other Austen films have.

Is it just one film about Northanger Abbey? I need to read that again, but that book didnt seem to get the attention as like Emma and P&P and S&S. did.

Re: PBS Austen adaptations

The one we missed last week (Persuasion) is replaying tomorrow night at 10:30 after Northanger Abbey, at least it is on my station, just thought I'd let everyone else know.
Thanks for announcing this, I never pay attention what is playing on TV, looking forward to the next couple of Sunday nights.
