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: Authors!

I think that the authors who are on the boards have a special tag by their name that says "Author" and that their names are in red, instead of the yellow of us regular peoples. :smileyhappy: Not very many show up here, though. Hmmm...

Re: Authors!

Well I don't know much about authors here, but on Goodreads I'm friends with alot of authors, though I don't really know who they are or heard of their books.  Lol.

Re: Authors!

Haha. It's Goodreads, and yes it's a website.  It's similar to B&N but kind of different.

Re: Authors!

I'm an author. Hmm...they didn't put a tag on my name and make it red...(cries his heart out)

 

Anyway, yeah, I wrote a book and actually had a book signing today at which I sold out of my box of 25 books. It was great! Then I watched Wolverine.

 

You can check out the book here: Double Life

Re: Authors!

You guys all know Connie_K, right? She's an actual author. I think she wrote a biography on J.K. Rowling, plus some other books.
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: Authors!

Thanks Kyleigh! Hope you can gather enough money to get one.

 

By the way, do you think I should contact one of the admins about making my name have the "Author" tag on it?

Re: Authors!

Well, that's where the downside comes in.

 

Since the books are non-returnable on the book distributor's database (grrr) the bookstores won't carry them in brick and mortar stores. You would have to special order it throught the computer, and at that rate you might as well buy it straight from this site.

 

I really wish that the bookstores would carry them! I don't know where they would stock them if they did carry it though.... I'm going to be wondering about that all day now.

Re: Authors!

Ya, I would definitely ask them about it. 

 

Man that sooo sucks.  At least I have a job now(does happy dance) and I am just waiting for that first paycheck!  Not like I'll be spending it though..... I have to raise 5000 something dollars for a trip to Europe next year.
