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.

Book Recommendation

I need a book that will knock me off of my feet. All the books I have read recently just haven't been that great. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Book Recommendation

What genre do you prefer?

Is this the part where you start tearing off strips of your shirt to bind my wounds?
If you wanted me to rip my clothes off, you should have just asked.

Re: Book Recommendation

Okay. Some authors I really like are the following:

  • Simone Elkeles
  • Jennifer Jabaley
  • Donna Freitas
  • Stephanie Perkins

You can look on my page for more books and authors. I read a lot of romance and dystopian.

Re: Book Recommendation

I just started a beautiful creatures, and it's amazing! One of the best books that I've ever read that is about paranormal romance. Give it a try, it's a lot of pages thought around 560 or something crazy like that but its so worth it and- well- just give it a try!

Re: Book Recommendation

I read beautiful creatures, the first 100 or so pages the week after my sophomore year. I knew by then that i never wanted it to end- i loved the plot, the mystery, and the movie. i plan to reread it again soon
