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: Sarah Dessen

Oahu!!! OMG I went there!! It is so amazing! What city are you guys staying in! That is the island my sister lives on. You are going to have so much fun. No matter what part of the islang you go to! 

 

That sounds fun! I went to camp. It was a Christian camp and we stayed in cabins and such. I loved it. I went for about 6 summers. I had some fun times there.

Ok :smileyhappy: Or even just what part of the Island. You are going to have lots of fun. Where a ton of sunscreen though, even on cloudy days!!! lol

 

Yeah I know what you mean. Going to a camp is really fun [at least what I went to] with swimming and camp fires and you meet so many people and its like you become best friends with these people only after a short while of knowing them. How long would you go for?

Oh sweet. Pearl Harbor is on Oahu. It is so amazing. Just seeing the memorial and being there and seeing all the oil that is still coming up to the surface is so amazing. But so sad as well. Be sure to bring your camera!!!! :smileyhappy:

Kelsey. Thats awesome. And that is still plenty of time. Being away from home may be hard, but itll be so much fun, that you probably wont even realize it. And the two weeks will fly by [or 4 depending..]
