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.

Re: Introduce yourself!

I enjoy spiritual books.  To me religious books tend to exclude those who do not follow that particular faith.  However, I believe "spirituality" is universal and spans across all religious faiths.  Spirituality reflects God's Truth and this is eternal and changeless.  Religion reflects man's understanding of that Truth and therefore oftentimes miss the true essence and thus are temporary and ever-changing.  I'm not bashing any particular religion for I think they all capture a piece of the big puzzle but I believe true spiritual understanding can only come from direct experience and a personal relationship.  "The Kingdom of God is within you!" pretty much sums it up for me! :smileywink:

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello, I'm Kayla. I just thought I'd come check the board out. I'm not part of any religion but I've met a lot of different people with different religions and have been able to gain a small perspective in a few of them. I would say I'm a spiritual person and have always felt a close presence with a higher power or God.

 

I know God and religion is a sensitive subject and I don't like offending people. I think religion brings people closer together but I don't believe it's necessary in order to have a relationship with God. I observe God's creations good or bad to try to gain knowledge which is what I believe I'm in this life to do.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello All, :smileyhappy:

 

I am Robin, a Christian, protestant Church of God, I enjoy reading all kinds of books, love Amish Series they are my favorite.

 

 I am open to reading about all types religion and I believe that a knowledge of religions allows each person to practice  there own religion peacefully and without  judgment of others.

 

Hope Barnes and Noble soon offer more Amish Series, for the Nook. The Kindle has a couple hundred.
