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: Introduce Yourself

I'm a bit of a geek, and in Macs mostly. I don't know how to program, but I can throw together a Gentoo linux installation and also set up OS X with Fink and Darwinports. I'm a computer networking major and working as helpdesk for a major transportation company.

I'm also co-founder of a linux users group, and into astronomy a little. I like books like Maximum OS X Security and Running Linux. I also like books by Stephen Hawkings and Carl Sagan, as well as Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton, and just surfing the web.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello all, I'm Anna and I am an amateur geek. I work as a graphic designer, I love the graphics arts and typography and I also thoroughly enjoy tinkering on computers in general; I have four (running various Windows OSs from Win98 through XP) systems, including a laptop, and one or the other of 'em is usually in some state of disassembly for this or that tweak.

My taste in tech books generally leans towards the troubleshooting ends (such as the Stephen Bigelow Upgrading and Repairing series) and I love Scott Kelby's Photoshop books; also nearly anything on the history of writing, typography, and types in general.

I love to learn and I'm looking forward to what shows up in this club :smileyhappy:

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi I'm Gary

My favorite books in the tech section are ones about game programming and any narrative on a certain aspect of computing.

One book I recommend is Silence on the Wire by Michal Zalewski. Why? I never say why. I just do. Why? That's just the kind of book recommender I am. =/
