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.

I can't remember the name of this book I read when I was a young teenager!

It was about a young boy and his father that went to settle the west and build a home for their family. The father leaves to go get his mother and sister, leaing the boy alone. He gets helped by a young Indian boy to survive. He references the book "Robinson Crusoe" a lot (I'm pretty sure this is the book he mentions many times as being his favorite book)! If anyone knows what this book is called please help! Thanks!

It might be Sign of the Beaver-Elizabeth George Speare


I vaguely remember this title from Middle School-a character Attean, and the phrase

"Attean learn"
