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.

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: Anyone know any good books?

New Moon was my least fav book because of the beginning, but I LOVED the ending, and I can not wait till it hits theaters, but my fav books out of the twilight saga are Twilight(the beginning of Bella and Edward) and Breaking Dawn (don't want to spoil it for you!).

 

A low oath made me aware that someone was with me, and the voice was impossible not to recognize. Two long, white hands shot out protectively in front of me, and the van shuddered to a stop a foot from my face, the large hands fitting providentially into a deep dent in the side of the van’s body.

Re: Anyone know any good books?

Hi all,

 

I'm one of those new authors who is trying to figure out how to get her book into the hands of some avid young adult readers. I don't know if Running for My Life would be considered a good book or not...but, I want to find out. I've had many adult readers tell me they love it, but haven't yet heard from my real audience...young adult readers.

 

If you think a story about a teenager with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) developed after being attacked by her mentally ill mother would be interesting to you, I'd love to hear what you think of Running for My Life, by Ann Gonzalez, good or bad.

 

Your thoughts will help me grow and improve as a writer...and I want nothing more than to write stories that mean something to teen readers.

Re: Anyone know any good books?

That's sounds like it'd be a great book!

Re: Anyone know any good books?

I'd read it =)
The persons of their world lived in an atmosphere of faint implications and pale delicacies, and the fact that he and she understood each other without a word seemed to the young man to bring them nearer than any explanation would have done.

Re: Anyone know any good books?

 It's a fresh topic that I would be interested in reading about!

 

 

 I wanted to be stupid and reckless, and I wanted to break promises. Why stop at one?

Re: Anyone know any good books?

I am an avid book lover myself, and I'm pretty tolerant about books except for heavy horror, sappy romance (boring!), most fantasy (unless it's *really* good to me, am not into Twilight, sorry), most sports (unless it's *really* good to me), most sci-fi (don't relate).

 

But enough about me.

 

Some books I have read/loved over the years:

All Quiet on the Western Front-WWI fiction, bloody but good

Artemis Fowl-have read books 1, 2, & 3

Battle of Jericho

Gemma Doyle Trilogy

Black Boy

The Boxer

Boy Proof

Bud Not Buddy

Cry the Beloved Country

Devil on my Heels

Dragonwings

Egypt Game

Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie

Flipped

Forgotten Fire

Secret Life of Bees

Kira-Kira

The Jungle (36 chapter uncensored version-will tell you this)

Invisible Man

Hoot

Harris and Me
