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.

Laurels???????

What in the world happened to laurels?  I don't see any more! Did we all forget?

Re: Laurels???????

I love getting laurels, but what is the purpose of them? I mean I know they give you a higher rank in B&N, but does it help us in any way?

It makes the author think: I did a good job.

Re: Laurels???????

Well, I mean I think it makes the author feel good about their work or what they wrote because other's took time to give them a laurel.  Although it takes 1 second to do.  But still! :smileytongue:

Re: Laurels???????

Hey guys-

 

I believe that laurels are kind of like "liking" something on Facebook; it allows you to say "Thanks" or "Great Job" or "I Agree" without making a separate comment. It also keeps things organized; that way we have less posts like those in the threads.

Re: Laurels???????

Ur welcome, tiffany57!

I didn't know you could see that people gave laurels. I use to wonder who gave me laurels. I guess it tells you now. I always wondered about them.

Re: Laurels???????

It use to not allow you to click on your own. So I didn't think you could see who gave you laurels. 

Thanks for the laurels! I think I'm going to start giving laurels more often too.

I didn't hear about this. What state did this happen in? And that is completely awful! It also sounds like something they would have on the show Criminal Minds. I can't believe people do this!

Oh my gosh. No I havn't heard that. Wow. It's terrible that people do that. And yeah, it does seem it would be on that show.  I watch 48 hours sometimes too. Anyone else??
