Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

April in Shakespeare, 2010!

April 5 - April 30, 2010:


For April in Shakespeare, in honor of National Poetry Month, we'll return to the lovely sonnets!


If you've been visiting the Shakespeare Book Club for awhile, you know that we have started a sonnets thread where we are reading and discussing them in order.  Looks like we will take them back up around Sonnet #24, though I'd like to return to the last 2 or 3 before that first, because discussion of them fell off during the holidays in December when we last spent a month on the sonnets.


The sonnets are so beautiful, and often only a handful get attention in our various school experiences, so I hope you'll join us to talk about them throughout April.  We generally talk about a couple of them per week.  We've been noticing interesting threads and patterns by reading them in order as well.


Join us for poetry and Shakespeare throughout April!  What better way to celebrate Spring!
