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: Greek mythology

I love Greek Mythology more than Roman mythology, but that's just because schools study the Greeks more. No offense. Roman history is pretty awesome, but the Greeks survived. That's the difference lol. It's funny how the Greek number 3 happens in modern times and books, etc. Mythology is just awesome man. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Greek mythology

Don't forget Louis XIV man. The "L'etat c'est moi" and all. Smh not ONE person should be head of ANY government, especially if the country is a major and powerful one. Stalin, Lenin, King Henry VIII, Napoleon, Queen Mary I, Hitler, Mussolini, the list goes on and on. History has shown us that one single person can not run a country solely by themself and NOT become power hungry. I'm sorry, democracy is the way. My favorite quote of all time is: "Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it". SO true.

We didn't learn from Napoleon, so we had a repeat with Hitler.

We haven't learned from Korea, so we're repeating it today with Iraq.

Leaders need to look at the past and remember what happened and LEARN from it. Or else our society will fall.
