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: Get to Know Eachother

I am 19 going to be 20 and I'm a twin.
I am in college.
I'm anti-social, shy, and quiet. 
I have an enormous fear of spiders, sharks (I blame that fear on Jaws), and snakes.
I used to play softball and golf - haven't really played since graduating from high school.
Obviously love reading.
I also love to write and am working on what I hope to be a book and am no where near finishing it.  I tend to jump around when I write though, like I'll work on the middle then the beginning then the end then back to the beginning...what ever is really clear in my mind.
I'd really like to learn how to play the guitar and/or piano.
My favorite TV shows are: Supernatural, Lie to Me, The Mentalist, Castle, Fringe, House, and Bones.
