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: Announcements and Upcoming Author Events

hi guys! My computer has been fixed and we're back in business!

 

I wanted to let you all know that I've got content coming from authors Loretta Chase and JoAnn Ross, as well as my own take on the new Meredith Duran book, which I loved.

 

So here are links to the books I've read and will be promoting with the authors:

 

Silk Is for Seduction  I loved this book and wrote on it over at H2H. Also, I've been devouring Loretta's backlist, one good thing from having no computer was extra reading time.

 

One Summer (Shelter Bay Series)  This one comes out on Tuesday, July 5th, and I'll have something from the author this week.

 

 

A Lady's Lesson in Scandal  A great, great book! More TBA!

Melanie - Glad the computer is fixed ! I like JoAnn Ross a lot and when I realized that #2 book in the Shelter Bay series is coming out on Tuesday, I knew that I had #1 book in my TBR collection, so I started it yesterday - I love it.  The Meredith Duran book looks good too, but I have SO many books yet to read, it may have to wait a while. Have a great 4th...

Filmed by Lori Foster (and friends) at the Barnes & Noble in West Chester, OH at yesterday's ROMANCING THE HOLIDAYS book signing.

 

Lori Foster First the readers: Judy Flohr, Marcie Robinson, Holly Rieth and Kris Bloom. Then Lindsey Faber and me. Back row, Becke Martin Davis, Jillian Kent & Front row, Denise Gwen, Patricia Sargeant, Michelle Stegman. Next is Kay Stockham, Toni Blake and Jen Sokoloski. Last but not least is Donna MacMeans. I missed Marcia James. :-( She was off talking to random shoppers, I think. LOL

Re: Announcements and Upcoming Author Events

My Ruthless Prince (Inferno Club Series #4)  Has anyone read this latest book by Gaelen Foley? I did, and loved it, as will any fan of the PTSD hero. Gaelen has agreed to answer some of my questions about the book, and so I wanted to let you all know that I'll have some insider info on the Inferno Club posted at some point in the near future!

I'm sooo excited to read this! I've been following its progress for a long time, and I've read some fabulous excerpts from it. I've had it preordered FOREVER!

I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of THE WITNESS. I always love Nora Roberts, but this is one of my all time favorites. I LOVE the characters and the premise!
