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.

Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

Hey guys,

 

So I assume that if you are reading this message, you either are a teenager or you enjoy reading teen books. This book club is really just a place to talk about books you've read, post things you've written, and discuss current teen issues. It's probably the most relaxed topic on the boards.

 

I'll begin with myself. I'm Jaya, the reader-moderator and teen deputy, I've been on the boards since before the release of DH, and I enjoy reading. So go right ahead and Introduce yourself!

 

And if you need help, you can either PM me, or AlliD, the Teen Reads moderator, or go to the "help" board.

 

Happy posting!

☼☺♥ Jaya ♥☺☼

Hey All,

 

My name's Liz. I love reading, but I stopped for the last few years because of my hectic college schedule. I'm now a college grad and since I don't have to read anymore textbooks until grad school, I've been trying to catch up on all the reading I've missed. I always like to see what everyone else is reading, what you guys suggest, and what you think of the books.

 

Like Jaya said, Happy Posting! =]

Re: Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

Hi, call me Bluecowgurl. I really love to read books, you know. I could've read 1-2 books a day, if I'm not that busy. Anyways, aside from reading books, I like to write poems too. Poems help me to express how I feel inside-- I simply love them... :-)

Re: Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

Hey Yall

 

My names a fairly common name, but I ain't going to share it. I love to read books and I find it so calming and relaxing especially with what variety they have now.

My schedule lately hasn't allowed me much time to read but I hope in soon to come months and breaks with school that I can.

I love to write poetry and my friends often  say that I am very good at, even though I think that I times I may have issues with how to say the right words. :smileyhappy: I'm so happy that I finally joined and got an account on Barnes and Noble, I have always had a passion for reading and probably will till the end of my life

Hey!

 

I'm Aly and well I'm not going to start this off by saying how much I love to read cause I'm guessing frm me writing this you can probably take the wild guess and go with yes lol! But anywho yeah I read and write. And I find that the best time for reading is at night or on a raining day, one cause at night everyones asleep so quite and clam and I can just take out my little book light, and two when its raining I just love to pick up a good thriller or suspenseful book cause the mood just goes well with it. Oh yeah and gotta have MUSIC! Well I just really wanna figure out wht this YA First Look books thing is? :smileytongue:

Welcome aly!

 

First look is a brand new special program offered through B&N. Once in a while, you have an opportunity to get a free book before it comes out! The only catch is that you must discuss it on the board. This months will be announced January 4th, so make sure you sign up when the title is released! Only a select number can sign up. More details will follow, I'm sure.

Re: Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

Hello(:

I'm Molly, obviously. I've been reading since I was 3, and I love all kinds of books.

I do NOT like the Twilight saga, but The Host was a great book.

One of my favorites is Gone With the Wind. 

My high school's library has a very limited selection of interesting books, so...I have to buy most of mine.

I really love Michael Grant's Gone & Hunger, and I can't wait for Lies to come out in April.

I just got a Nook today for Christmas, and I'm loving it, even though the servers are slow.

Anything else?

:smileyhappy:

Re: Get to Know Eachother

thats a pretty good idea.

 

I'm 14, and I live in New York, I like Fantasy, and Greek myth.

I want to learn how to play the Cell, Orcarina, Guitar/Electric Guitar, Drums, Bass, Piano, and Violin.

The last time I measured myself, i was 5' 3" might have grown since then. I like anime and manga.

And I LOOOOVE playing video games, they kick-ass.
