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: How Young?

Anything younger than 15 I think is too young...   It's funny bc my mom was complaining that my niece who is 13 years old still plays with dolls and she thinks my niece should be a little more "mature" for her age.  I think in US kids grow up and are exposed to adult life much too early and don't experience the wonder of being young and blissfully ignorant to the makings and happenings of the adult world... I'm sure some people will call me old fashion, but the way I see it; you're young only once and once you become an adult there's no turning back... :smileysurprised:

Re: How Young?

I think it's different for women, because we hit puberty sooner than men and you can't help the feelings that start to develop.  From an adult's perspective, I would want them to wait longer, but from a kid's perspective, I understand that dating is something that naturally occurs once the hormones kick in.

Re: How Young?

I think it depends on the person. Different people mature at different times and thats part of what makes us unique. I mean I would definitely say probably at the very youngest mid-middle school (which in my town is grades 5-8) but I think some girls get too attached to having a boyfriend if they start too early. I really don't know though, this is a view coming from a 16 year old who hasn't dated (I'm allowed to, it just hasn't happened for me yet) so I don't know how creditable my opinion is. 

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
