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.

Harry Potter 5th(Sirius died :smileysad: ) and 6th(Dumbledore:smileysad: )
The Devil's Arithmetic(more on the movie, but that's a really different story)
The Phantom of the Opera(the original book)

and a whole lot more. some of the Warriors books had sad parts in them. some books I cry about because they have a good ending too.

book nerd. music freak. movie fanatic.
major obsesser over so many things.

I love to read and write poetry/lyrics and short stories. The layers of music fascinates me. Someday, I want to do movie soundtracks, maybe, or teach. The book to movie transition fascinates me to the extreme. I've been mesmorized by the way Harry Potter and Twilight and so many others have been brought into movies is something I think I would love to do.

No, but I have been touched deeply by books like Invisible Man, To Kill a Mockingbird and the movie It's a Wonderful Life.

Re: have you ever cried at the end of a book?

I haven't cried while reading any books except the 7th Harry potter book, it was when Harry realized that he would have to die in order to get rid of Voldermort. I know he comes back but at the time I didn't know this and I cried like a baby, not just a single tear rolling down my cheek, I was crying and gasping and sobbing, it wasn't pretty.

th 'two prinesses...' book was soooo great. and yes so sad. but so good!!! i have cried for the endings of books more than my own life! if there's someone dieing or leaving someone, i cry. i get so attached to the characters, its crazy. new moon, i think, hp 5 and 6, the glass word (dark reflections trilogy, book 3), the silver kiss, boys that bite (dont know why i cried, but i think i did.), normally in books that the guy leaves the girl. its so sad.

Re: have you ever cried at the end of a book?

YES, and that has to be definately!!
 
Ok... books I cried in...
 
Twilight, when Bella thinks Edward is going to leave her forever.
New Moon, when Edward does leave Bella (but thankfully not forever).
Eclipse, when Jacob's in bed and Bella goes to see him (aww, that was the last proper time they will ever truly 'be together'.
The Little Princess when she realizes her dad is still alive.
Harry Potter 7 when Dobby dies and when Hagrid carries Harry into the hall and everyone thinks he's dead.
 
Ahh... I'm a sucker for sad books, bring on the tissues!

"I'm sorry if there's been some kind of miscommunication, but Bella is unavailable tonight.' Edward's tone changed, and the threat in his voice was suddenly much more evident as he continued. 'To be perfectly honest, she'll be unavailable every night, as far as anyone besides myself is concerned. No offense. And I'm sorry about your evening.'"
-- Edward


yes, i am obsessed with Edward Cullen.... and your POINT is??
