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.

Following the meeting, Macbeth and Banquo are informed of the fate of the Thane of Cawdor and Macbeth’s new title. Both begin to think about the predictions.



I trust that everyone is aware that the action in Act I, Scene 3 is merely an acronym for the title of the play:

Re: Macbeth, Act I

We all know that you MEANT to say "Choisya and I," but, of course, that would have kind of ruined the acronym.

Re: Macbeth, Act I

I meant Anglophile, not Anglo. According to my dictionary Anglophile means "a person who strongly admires or is devoted to England, its people, customs, influence, etc." Are you trying to say that this is not a fair and apt description of you?

Re: Macbeth, Act I

I had always understood the word Anglophile to mean a foreigner who admired England etc. and as I am English, the word doesn't apply to me. Also, I am not particularly nationalistic/patriotic so I wouldn't say that I 'strongly admire' my own culture. I like to think of myself as European. But thanks all the same.:smileyhappy:
