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: Love Historicals? Head to Unabashedly Bookish NOW to dish!


"Shall we talk about the heroes who forgo wigs, choosing to wear their thick tresses in a little queue at the back?"
 
I'm with you on this one. Picturing a hero in a powdered wig doesn't do it for me.

omgomgomgomg!  melanie, debbie, I can barely breath.  There's this scene in Marsha Canham's "My Forever Love," where the...wait for it...virgin Knight Templar hero (sqee!)...is helping the heroine learn how to do up the fasteners on her braies and hose (she's obviously masquerading as a boy to foil a plot against Richard Coeur de Leon), and, well, things get wonderfully sexy from there...

And, oh, gawd, yes yes yes on the queue!  [I'm a little verklempt right now...] Oh, and you probably should know that I worship Marsha Canham and work her books into as many conversations as possible.

totally, becke.  unless it's a hero masquerading as a footman (or a brawny footman in reality) whose wig is knocked askew during, well, you know...

"My Forever Love" will be added to my TBR pile.
