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. On May 1, we’re saying 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: New Biographies

Angela's Ashes  

 

Frank McCourt. It's his memoir of him growing up in abject poverty in Ireland.

 

 The Places in Between  

 

Rory Stewart. It's his memoir of his year-long trip walking on foot through Afghanistan. He knew no one, had little money, and was at the mercy of strangers in small tribal villages.

 

Three Cups of Tea 

 

Greg Mortensen. A wonderful memoir of a man who builds schools for children in the Middle East.

Re: New Biographies

I know it was published ages ago , but I really enjoyed The Glass Castle.  I've also recently read a thoroughly wacky but beautifully written book by Susie Boyt about her obsession with Judy Garland. I'm not a JG fan but the book very funny and revealing about celebrity and being a fan.
