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: What are you currently reading?

Fang, ok I am gonna try Discount again... I am not going to punish a book just because I am in a reading funk! :smileyhappy: 

 

just finished: 

Once Dead, Twice Shy (Madison Avery Series #1)  

ok, like I said I am in a reading funk! I didn't like this one either. However, I am a Rachel Morgan fan thru and thru... I think that's what my problem was here. I expected that kind of writing and couldn't get away from the YA of this one. I did like the concept and I liked her sidekicks! :smileyhappy: I will continue the series and leave the Hollows to Rachel! 

 

I am currently reading

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet  

this one should be a no brainer... Charley is a fave of mine!!!

HELP! I've fallen and can't reach my book!!!!

Railsea was AWESOME. Just an unforgettable book – kind of weird that they marketed it as a kid's book. It will blow away anyone who reads it, regardless of age...

Absolutely right! Too many categories and classifications – and, yes, the "kid" stamp most definitely affected sales of this book.

Discount Armageddon (InCryptid Series #1)  

Ok so I started reading this one again while I am waiting for Ever After to get here... I must say I am glad I listened and picked it up again.  I am definately hooked now. I don't know what did it, but a little before midway it got really interesting!  :smileywink:

The two main characters are developing more as well.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I picked this one up late Saturday night, and spent most of the day Sunday reading it.  At this moment I'm 1/2 way through!  LOL.  I am enjoying the troubles the characters are in here.  Feels like they are all hitting bottom. :smileywink:
