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.

Lets play a game!

Okay everyone! Just for kicks im going to give you a quote that RELATES to a popular teen book on shelves today! The key word here is 'relates' so this quote did not come from the book! Try to answer correctly and maybe find a quote of your own to keep the game going! I've got a few more up my sleve but in the mean time this one should be easy:smileyhappy:

 


"One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us." -- Kurt Vonnegut, Cold Turkey

 

 

Got it? Good! Now what book could this be about...hum...reeeeeady GO!

Re: Lets play a game!

Well Played! You are correct! It was indeed about The Hunger Games anyone notice that its going to be a movie?? I personally cant wait to see it! In the mean time how about another quote relating to a popular teen book/series? Lets see how quick someone can guess this!

 

"statistic: there has been missing persons reports that 100,000 people disappeared leaving no solid clues nor trace, only a space in the lives of their friends and family"--Ishmael Reed

Good Luck! Cant wait to see an answer! and maybe someone else has a clever quote...

Re: Lets play a game!

Yay I've got another one! Just cuz you guys are being such good sports and cuz im having fun finding these quotes heres another one to get ya thinkin! Maybe this one will be a little harder?? Remember these quotes relate to a book/series and dont actually come from the book itself!

 

"Our sun is one of 100 billion stars in our galaxy. Our galaxy is one of billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living things in that enormous immensity." --Wernher von Braun

 

 

Bet this one is harder! Just remember its a popular book right now!
