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: Just thought I'd share a part of me...

haha, that's the first time anyone's ever told me I have a way with words. Only on paper, I'm afraid, not when spoken. I get too nervous and get all tongue-tied, when I'm talking to people, unless I've known them awhile..

 

I go out of my way to avoid speaking unless I absolutely must, like at work, or when my friends expect a response. How weird am I? lol!

 

Gracias mi amigas! I appreciate the compliments!

Re: Just thought I'd share a part of me...

Here's another something I wrote. I woke up in the middle of the night with these thoughts in my head, a memory that was just hours old at the time, it's weird waking from sleep from an anxiety attack.. But here it is...another piece of me:

 

 

And there never will be

 

  

Her heart is shredding itself to pieces

When had she become so weak

Voices fill her head

The endless "dos" and "don'ts" confusing her non-stop

She can barely sit still

Twitching her legs, tapping her feet, drumming her fingers on her thighs

Her breathing is rough and quick

Causing her chest to ache with the expansion

She breaks out in rashes

Her nervousness showing now

Her vision becomes blurry

As a pounding begins in her head

Her skin is frozen to the touch

A physical numbness she desperately wanted emotionally

The noise around her is somehow dimmed

By an eerie, almost deafening silence barricading her mind

The scent of him still lingers in the air

Driving her wild with each inhalation

Sensing him all around her

As if he were still there with her

In a way it's soothing

A calmness before realization hits

This obsession has been taken way too far

The absurdity of it strikes her to the core

With a slam of the door

She is brought back to her reality

Heart pounding viciously

She fears her thoughts had escaped her

Glancing around

Comprehension dawns on her

There is no one there besides herself

And there never will be.

So sad, so strange, the days that are no more.

Oh bleeding hell! I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to imply that it was a bad thing, I just thougt it was cute! I'm not used to people who actually care about saying anything to me. They usually just leave. And that's that.
