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.

Is reading something you do all the time or is it something that is just for fun.

Reading rocks, I just wish I realized that a year ago.:smileytongue:

Both.  I read hours a day (if I don't have something else going on).  But I also have to read the newest books for my website, teenbookreviews.org, because I review the newest books and post them on there.  So I read for fun and for the site.  I don't like some of the books I have to read, though, so I don't count those as fun.

Re: Is reading something you do all the time or is it something that is just for fun.

I've always read for fun. At first it started off with simple books - I was a huge fan of the Boxcar series - but around fifth grade, I started with books like Gone with the Wind and Great Expectations. Now I read whatever catches my interest.

 

The best way to describe it is I feel naked without a book. Some peope feel that way about their cell phones or something like that. I have to have a book with me. It's a security blanket as much as a trusted friend.

Re: Is reading something you do all the time or is it something that is just for fun.

I want to read all the time. If i had more time i would be reading all the time. I love reading its so awesome. I read for fun and because i like to see different ways authors write. My parents don't like when i read a book the entire day. Like when i get a new book thats awesome i rarely ever talk to people and i lock myself in my room until im done.

Re: Is reading something you do all the time or is it something that is just for fun.

i am totally the same way! i get a new book and that's what my life revolves around for the next oh... four days!!! but it's a shame your parents react like that. mine arent the reading type, but they think it's good i read because apparently it will make me smart,,,the only thing i think it's done is give me an addiction to books and writing, and an obsession with mythical creatures!! LOL
