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.

Re: RE: Wintergirls--anyone reading it

I assume you'll want to hear how it was or something...

 

It was really good, but it was also tough to get through.  There were some parts that were a little too much for me (depressing, graphic, morbid).  I found myself reading very quickly to get through a few pages in it, but I didn't stop, because overall the story was so interesting and true to life.  Having a friend in school that had dealt with anorexia, this book was especially worthwhile to me.  I felt like I had private access into some of her thoughts while reading it and it gave me a whole new understanding of what she possibly went through.

Re: RE: Wintergirls--anyone reading it

I've read it before. It's a great book but, like the person above me said, It's very real and true to life so it's not something you would want to read if you are looking for a happy adventure. I enjoyed it very much though, it was a good read!
