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.

Changes in June

Hello, Shakespeare Book Club -

 

You may have seen the administration's announcement this morning in "Announcements."

 

The Shakespeare Book Club, and a few other clubs, are being disbanded.  After the end of May, I will no longer be a moderator.

 

I have enjoyed sharing Shakespeare with all of you.

 

Keep reading, and take care -

~ConnieAnnKirk

Very best wishes to you, Connie.  Although I don't have much to say about the readings  I've enjoyed all the book clubs that I've been following.  You have always been a wonderful moderator and teacher (old Emily Dickinson class).

Thanks so much, Nancy.  If you were with me for the Dickinson class at the old BNU, then you know the site goes through changes from time to time.  Perhaps we'll "meet" yet again.

 

All best to you.

Hi Connie!  I thought I would just pop over here, too, to thank you for having moderated this board.  Although I've read with you much more often on the Classics board, I did participate in a few discussions on this one a while back.  The discussion of Macbeth finally motivated me to read one of the most famous Shakespeare plays that I had never gotten around to reading before, and I am grateful for that.  And then it was followed up the next month by my long-time favorite, The Taming of the Shrew!

 

I'm sure that you will sorely be missed by B&N Shakespeare readers!!! :smileysad:

Aw, thanks Denise.  I'm sorry to see the Shakespeare Club disband; I have to say.

Re: Changes in June

Dear Shakespeare Book Club:

 

This is my last day here at the club. 

 

I hope our paths cross again one day, but in the meantime, I wanted to thank you all for sharing your enjoyment of Shakespeare with me in such a fun and cordial way for so long.

 

I'm sorry to hear that the Shakespeare Club is disbanding, but change is inevitable, and maybe lovers of the bard will have another opportunity to share on the BN.com site in the future.  One never knows! 

 

In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy your summers, and maybe I'll "see" you around!

 

Take care! 

~ConnieAnnKirk
