Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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: Happy Birthday, Paul!

Hey, thanks you guys – that was soooooo nice! Had a great day with my family and, afterwards, made some pretty lofty goals, since I will be 50 in a few years.


By the time I'm 50, I want to:


• get back to my "creative" roots and have something that is fiction published, and


• be in better shape at 50 than I was at 20. I was a pretty good sprinter in high school and college and I want to be able to come close to my personal records (10.9 in the 100, 48.9 in the 400) and be able to bench press more weight at 50 than I could when I was regularly working out in my 20s and 30s.


The older I get the more I realize that age really means nothing. It's all about YOU and how you live. There is no stationary period – you're either improving or you're dereriorating...


"There never can be a man so lost as one who is lost in the vast and intricate corridors of his own lonely mind, where none may reach and none may save..." – Isaac Asimov, Pebble in the Sky
