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: Snow (off topic)

We're back to our normal rain, and the grass is green again. It's going to need mowing soon.

Just when I thought spring was coming, I looked out this morning to see huge, wet flakes of snow. The gras is speckled green and white now.

Bite your tongue! :smileyhappy:

But I fear you're right. Time to get out the John Deere and make sure it's ready for its first foray into the wildness that we call a lawn.

But my wife and daughters won't let me mow the front hill until after the wildflowers have finished blooming, by which time the grass is so high that I can't mow it to its proper length right away or I would kill it, but have to work it down gradually. And since the lawn is on bedrock and dries up into a lovely golden brown as soon as the rains stop, I no sooner get it mowed down than it dies off, not to recover again until the fall rains come.

Ah, life in the Pacific Northwest!

You are right, Fireice! By the way, does your handle have anything to do with Robert Frost's poem?
