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: Welcome to the Boards!

I've never introduced myself here but I'm on a big writing spree so I'm basically replying to tons of threads.

My name is Briana and I'm 17 and live in Pennsylvania, US. I didn't read much until a couple years ago when I started to read the Harry Potter series. Ever since then I've been a pretty avid reader and I try to take chances on books. I like to try something that I usually wouldn't read. I'm always glad I do because I always end up loving the books I think I won't like. Well that's it!

Hey my name is Laura. I am not really new here but I just figured I would stop and introduce myself.  Anyway...  I am a musician my main instrument is flute but I also play piccolo and oboe. A little French Horn, Clarinet, and Violin.  Currently going to school to teach music education to high school students.  And no im not that old.  But yeah what else... Ohh yes and I think that Edgar Allen Poe is amazing. Can you believe he believed that stroies should be written to frighten people.  They were not supposed to have a moral.  In his oppinion they were to entertain you not tell you some deep dark meaning that most people would never understand. Sorry I rambled.

Re: Welcome to the Boards!

Hi. I am Arielle. Some call me Ari. And lots get my name mixed up with the Little Mermaid (Ariel) except it doesnt sound the same. Mine is pronounced R.E.L. like sounding out the letters.

 

But anyway, I am new to the boards and so far I love it.

Reading has always been a part of my life and its always fun.

My favorite authors are Sarah Dessen, Ann Brashares, Stehpenie Meyer, Kate Brian, Maureen Johnson, Alex Duval, Mitch Albom and plenty more.

 

<3 Arielle.

Re: Welcome to the Boards!

Hey everyone!! I'm Kendal. Only one l. everyone spells it with 2 ls all the time. I absolutely love reading. Ive been reading adult level books since the 3rd grade, so I'm always looking fornew books because none of my friends read the same thing for me. I'm a really avid reader. Its like all I do, which my mom says isnt healthy, but I don't think so. My fav books areThe Twilight Saga, House of Night, and almost all Suzanne Collins books.
