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.

Re: Books You Never Finished

Just remembered. I also never finishe Inkheart. I don't remember what page I stopped on, but I do remember that it was the stupidest book that I have ever read. The movie was good though.


Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Re: Books You Never Finished

I have not finished Deception Point by Dan Brown. I got halfway through the book, then I got bored. I try to finish it, but I just can't :smileysad: Deception Point is not one of Dan Brown's best books, but it's okay.

Re: Books You Never Finished

I had a hard time reading the classics. Like "To Kill a Mockingbird". It took me a lot of dedication, strawberry ice cream, and jammin breaks in order to truck through the first half of that book. Its really boring to read about a world through the eyes of a six year old child. It SO hard!! But when it gets to the court chapter its starts to get very interesting and in the end it does touch your heart, so I don't fully regret it. But another book that is gathering dust on my shef with a paper book mark with a cow draw on it is "The Scarlet letter."  To this day I still can't keep my nose in it for more than 15 minutes. I just can't!:smileysad:

But I do feel like reading more classic for my own sake. I feel like it will open my mind  more!

I do recomend reading "The Host". It does start out slow but then it picks up pace and become a great story. So try again to those who couldn't get through it!!:smileywink:

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway. I got to page six

"There would be little reason to lie down at night without the possibility of seeing things bigger and more amazing than the average day might bring about. Why pick up a pen or type on a keyboard if there's no imagination or wonder left to behold?"
-pg 3 of Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra
