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.

A Thought About Spoilers

It's hard to say how many of us here will be reading Pride and Prejudice for the first time. Perhaps many, perhaps few. But I'd hate to preside over the spoiling of the ending for those just getting introduced.

So, if you're posting in the "Early Chapters" discussion topics, please be aware that those topics are meant to be useful to those readers just getting started on Pride and Prejudice.

We'll post some "whole book" topics after we've gotten underway.

If you're starting a new thread on a topic, please try to keep "spoilers" out of your subject line (for example, "I Can't Believe Miss [X] Would Marry Mr. [Y]" might not be the best choice).

And, conversely, I'd encourage those of you who are reading P&P for the very first time to be cautious about where you enter the discussion -- or to finish reading as soon as you can. Because it does get hard not to talk about the conclusion!

Thanks, everyone.

Re: A Thought About Spoilers

What does "early chapters" cover?

The best way for us to avoid spoilers is probably to designate certain folders for discussion only through a specific chapter and then other folders for talking about the whole book.
