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.

How do I get a ARC

Hi, I am new and I was wondering how do I receive my copy of a ARC for the new bookclub starting up. Also my other question when does it start.

 

Thanks.

Hi Bluekittly67,

Welcome to the board!

 

Are you asking about our monthly book club? If so, it's ongoing. Just pick up a copy of the latest book we're reading, and post your thoughts about it! We don't send out ARCS for it, though.

Re: How do I get a ARC

I think the First Look Book Club at BN.com is the only one that sends out ARCs.  Generally speaking, publishers and agents have tightened up sending these out, but if you have a blog that regularly reviews books and has a decent readership, you could request ARCs.  You might get a few; it's hard to predict who will send them and who won't.
