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: I know I'm weird...

The books are about a plain girl named Bella that meets Edward, a vampire and they fall in love. I don't like that much but a surprisingly big number would disagree with me and say they are wonderful. It's a fifty-fifty chance you'll like them.

Re: I know I'm weird...

Do NOT see the movie, especially not before you read the books!!!!! The books are pretty good, so you might want to read those. =)

Re: I know I'm weird...

There are a lot of people that like them but also a percent of people who hate them. If there's a book that a bunch of people like but some people don't, I usually read it. Because chances are, I'll probably like that book. I think you should try it out. And when you're done with the books, watch the movie only if you have an open mind and don't expect it to be exactly like the books. It's good entertainment if you've read the books, even if you haven't read the books. My mom loved the movie and watches it more than I do lol.

no, pretty good. They got worse and worse as the series progressed.
