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.

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: If you havent read this series then you r crazy!! (percy jackson series)

i loooovvee these books!

they are about kids who are "half-bloods" or "demi-gods"

which basically means that they have either a mortal mother or father...

BUT

their pther parent is one of the gods or godesses from the greek myths!

[the movie is also coming out next year!!!]

 

ok, so my summery didnt do the series much justice but if you get the chance: read them!!

they are extremley well done and worth your time!

the B&N i go to is in Edmond, Ok and they have an awesome Starbucks inside. it's like my two favorite things combined, coffee and books, HA! anyways... let me know how the pride and prejudice and zombies is.. i thought about reading it after i had to read pride and prejudice for school but decided that i didn't want anything to do with it for a while. that book was hard to get through.
