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.

Week Two of Macbeth

[ Edited ]
Hello, Shakespeare Groupies!

We are in the midst of week two of Macbeth, approaching the ides of March. Can there be a time more portentious?

Like Macbeth, we are "in blood / Stepped in so far that should [we] wade no more, / Returning were as tedious as go o'er" (3.4.136-8).

So let's carry on then, shall we?

We've certainly had many interesting conversations about various topics this past week or so. In fact, any number of us could say, "Strange things I have in head that will to hand / Which must be acted ere they may be scanned" (139-40).

I invite all who have things in their heads to bring them to hand (then keyboard). The more the better!

Those of you who've been reading along more slowly might want to check out my thread on Act II, which is all about the murder and its immediate aftermath.

If you have other issues you'd like to see discussed from that act, please start a thread!

Also, a lively discussion is ongoing in the "Weird Sisters" thread. Those of you who have not yet contributed, I urge you to bring your thoughts to the forum! And those of you who scarce need urging, please continue to share your ideas.

Consider today's date - it's too bad we weren't doing Julius Caesar! :smileyhappy:
