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.

Yes, it's a completely awesome book. Have you read other books by John Green?

Yes, I have read Finding Alaska (just ok), and Paper Towns, which I absolutely love.  How old are you?

I loved Looking for Alaska. :smileyvery-happy: and Paper Towns kind of made me depressed at the end. I'm 18.

Well, that makes sense. It was kind of juvenile. The book was almost like a memoir, but probably exaggerated a little. John went to a boarding school, he played lots of pranks, there was an against-the-rules smoking area, and he had a religion teacher a lot like the one in the book.

 

I love all the books that John Green has written. I can't wait for his next.

I really liked An Abundance of Katherines, I think about it everytime I hear or see anything about Archduke Franz Ferdinand :smileyhappy: Looking for Alaska was just kind of a meh book to me...
