Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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: Life as we knew it series

Yeah, my friend did a book report on it in the 7th grade and I thought I just had to read it b/c it looked so good.  And it turned out I was right.  The book is very realistic and the characters are great too.


My only problem was the sequels - they did not live up to my expectations.  This is partly due to the change in main characters in the second book and the weird plot in the third (I just didn't like some of the character's actions, but hey, that's just me!).


So, bottom line is the first book is really great, but don't expect too much from the 2nd and 3rd.

Re: Life as we knew it series

I loved the 1st and 3rd books, not so much the 2nd.
