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.

Vampire Academy???

I've been a huge fan of Harry Potter for years now, but when the series ended I had nothing to read (I've also read Beedle the Bard). I was left a huge hole missing (don't know how else to describe it haha). So I found Twilight and I loved it, but I finished all four books way to fast. Now I'm feeling the same way all over again. I saw this other series called Vampire Academy. Can any of you tell me if it's any good? Will I get hooked on these books too? :smileyhappy:

Re: Vampire Academy???

I have only read the first two books of V.A. but they are really good. They arent like Twilight, but they are good and they have some great characters.
