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.

Good books?

I need a new series! Preferably a longer one, but short ones are fine too.


Question: Is Wicked lovely good?

Re: Good books?

You should read some of the books by Tamora Pierce! She has a bunch of books out there (I'm talking around 26) and they all rock! But some of my favorites are Trickster's Choice and Beka Cooper: Terrier. They're all just really good reads, and there are tons to choose from!


Also, The Book Thief is wonderful, though it is a stand-alone novel, not a series.


Good luck finding things to read! :smileyhappy:

Re: Good books?

You could try the Percy Jackson series.

Or the Guardians Of Time Trilogy.

You might enjoy them like I did.

Or you could try some of Sarah Dessen's books. Though that's not a series.

Try the Principles of Love series by Emily Franklin.  Each book isnt really long but in total I think theres about 8 and their really good.
