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.

Great interview. I must say, I really enjoy reading the B&N Review. I find the reviews, articles, and interviews to be very well done. Thanks B&N!

I found the interview to be very enlightening as well.  So interesting how the novel came about with little bits of info gathered here and there.  A question that was preying on my mind while reading POTB was answered by the interview as well.  I was interested in knowing if GB had written the book straight through from cover to cover or did she write the vignettes first.  Turns out she had written at least two vignettes before joining them with Hannah's story.  Marvelous read!  Entertaining and sophisticated.
