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: Help!!!!!!!

Fo Sho!



If you've got something to write about, you should always keep writing.  You need to speak your mind!  If you feel like it isnt developing, or you're unhappy with it, you're probably just too focused on trying to make it a good book, rather than get your points fully across.  Many great authors have put down their novels for years at a time, and then picked them back up to write again- don't be afraid to take a break, no matter how long!  And make sure you arent limiting your creativity, this is your novel, anything can happen.

Re: Help!!!!!!!

keep writing you can always change things later if it doesnt come out right. Dont get discouraged just take a break and when something comes to you where ever you may be write it down. All you can do is hope for the best and good luck.
