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.

New ideas for books to read?

I need some new books to read.  I have a library with well over 300 books, most of them teen fantasy and adventure.  I loooooove Harry Potter - greatest books EVER!


Other things I love:

- Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance

- Anything Rick Riordan (my favorite are the Kane Chronicles :smileyvery-happy: )

- Eon and Eona (if you haven't read these two, you NEED to)

- Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue (all by Kristin Cashore)

- Anything Eoin Colfer


Stuff I don't particularly like:

-Twilight series


I like books with fantasy and adventure that have romance in them, but don't revolve around it.  Like when two best friends are on a quest and fall in love in the end - that's fine.  But I don't like it when the entirity of a book is around a girl and her boyfriend.


So, what recommendations do you have for me??

Matched series - Ally Condie(although, the first book doesn't have much adventure. It does have romance.)

Infinity Ring James Dashner, Carrie Ryan, going to be written by several authors... (a new time travel series for tweens, but I think it could be read by anyone.)

The Naturals: Awakening - by Arron Patterson, Melody Carlson, KC Neal, Robin Parrish (a science fiction and fantasy serial that's being published every three weeks)

Legend by Marie Lu (The sequel is going to be published on Jan. 29th.)

I just got done with The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, it was great, fantasy, and adventure, but it has no romance, really. It's a really great book though, you may like it. Prequel to Lord of THe Rings, tells about the Ring and about Bilbo's journey with the Dwarves. Also, the movie just came out. (which was pretty good too :smileyhappy:

Re: New ideas for books to read?

If you looove Harry Potter, you must check out There are 3 books in the series. The stories are about James Potter (Harry's dad). I have read 2 of the books. And I have to say...they are really good. Theyhave thecharacters from the original hogsworth. Don't worry J.K. Rowling is fine with it. Chech it won't be disappointed
