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.

Graphic Novels...?

just wanted to know what you guys thought of them because I want to read one and don't know which one to read.
There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.-----Emily Dickinson

Re: Graphic Novels...?

I've read plenty of others if none of those appeal to you..

 

I feel a bit alone at the moment, not to mention awkward, here since I'm the only one who's replied thus far....

Re: Graphic Novels...?

Are the Death note novels better than the show, by any chance?

Re: Graphic Novels...?

I've never seen the show.  I really like the graphic novels from what I've skimmed in stores though.  Lol.  I'm planning on stealing them from a friend.

Re: Graphic Novels...?

One thing about Fruits basket..........

 

You will love it....but the only thing is if you really like it you will cry.....I know I did alot but I couldn't help it at all......I just love Tohru and Kyo.....

 

One thing about it which I love as the books go on the characters grew...they change in apperance and I loved that.......

 

I finish volume 22 and volume 23 a couple of days and cried and cried.  It was beautiful.....Did anybody read those yet????

" When I read I feel like a whole new world opens where I can laugh, love and cry.....Where it can take away my sadness....That is how I can escape the world around me....Where no one is hurt anymore and I can do whatever I want, and no one can judge me....I can just be ME "

Re: Graphic Novels...?

OMG...I have to tell you this and I won't say anymore

 

When she is in the hospital nobody will let Kyo see her it was so sad....

 

That scene isn't too pretty....When I found out that Kyo knew Tohru before they met I so looked back at all the chapters and which was it...When they went to go visit Tohru's moms grave...Someone...who was it..turned to him and was like why are you so sad.....Or he went to go look for Tohru when she went missing....

 

I love when Kyo kisses her when she was on the ground and at the bottom is said "Did I reach you" I loved that
