Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

user ranking

hey everyone, I've been using this website for about a year now, and I've never really paid attention to rankings people get. as you can see, i'm a Correspondent. some people are "new user", "Contributor", "Frequent Contributor", "Distinguished Correspondent", etc......  what does these rankings mean? its weird, but kind of cool at the same time. i looked up mine, and a correspondent is a person who communicates by letters.

Re: user ranking

These rankings don't really mean anything they are just a way to give some users a higher rank because they have received more laurels on their posts. This is basically like Kudos on a good post that you can give people by clicking on the green leaf below a persons icon. It is just fun to get higher and higher rankings, plus I believe once you have reached a certain rank you can give more than just one laurel to a post you really like. for example I believe some really high ranking people can give up to 3 laurels to one person's post.
