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.

Too much and not enough....

Alright, the title is pretty self explanatory. What kind of book/genre have you seen published way too much lately and which kind of book/genre would you like to see more of?
 
Books about vampires (even though i LOVE the Twilight series) are getting to be a little too popular.
I kind of want to read more mystery books but not cliche mystery books, if that makes sense.
 
What about everyone else?

I am not fussy with books, but I am not fond of excessively whiny characters, heavy horror (no Stephen King), or stuff that one can't get interested in.
