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. On May 1, we’re saying 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: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

OMG a great list with A TON of great books!!! A great idea but if u don't mind me asking a favor though to make this better! i hate running through page by page of threads so maybe a cleanout? Like post every suggestion that was made (in the clickable link format because that made things SOOOOO much easier and that was a truly genius idea) and put them all at the top and get rid of all the other posts... or at least move them to an arcive folder... thanks guys!!!! i would do it myself but i don't no how yet... i'm still a little 2 new...

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

VampireGod I would change things if i could. the list that is on page one is the main list and some of the posts by other ppl have been a lot of the same books so my best offer since I don't have the power to delete other ppl's posts is that I can go through the pages and redo a list on page 5 but with time it will get crowded again so i can keep redoing the list every 5 pages or so.

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

Thank you to the three that recently added more books onto the list. please know that the original list is on page one and that some of the books being posted are already on the list. I am in the process of creating the list over again on either page five or six. My account has been acting up lately and the add a product button isnt even on my message screen this week so I will have to see when is the soonest I get that button back so I can recreate the list with my original list and everything that has been added by fellow members. Thank you all for your help and patience.

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

Alright everyone I got the Add Product Button back so I am going to make the new list that is made up of the original list plus what everyone has added.

 

I'd like to take this time to remind everyone that this thread is used for giving recommendations and ASKING for them. I have had a lot of people recommend great books and I thank all of you but if we could spread the word that this is also to cut down on all the "I Need Recommendation" threads that would be great and will keep the board clean. :smileyvery-happy:
