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.

Please bear with me!

Sorry everyone, I was out of town last week and am still finishing this book! I'm nearly done, and I'll have discussion topics posted later today. Don't let that stop you from talking about it, though. Back to the book -- more later.

I know, once I got to a certain point I knew I was going to have to drop everything until I finished it. Done! So, now I need to post some discussion topics. Feel free to post your own discussion topics, too.

Isn't this a great read! I love the dog fights they have! I love the way Gabby kept saying over and over again, I have a boyfriend, I am in love with him, its as if she is protesting to herself but I can read between the lines. She really likes Travis I believe.
It was fun reading about their boat trip date! Oh! its wasnt a date, now was it!

Re: Please bear with me!

So I just finished it this evening, and I have to say, I'm a little disappointed.........
It was a good book, but I'm used to his books being more than "good". Obviously, as someone posted in another thread, the reader is led astray by the "choice", since I thought, probably like others, that the choice was about who Gabby would choose, when the real choice is a much more serious issue (don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it!). I am used to his books being more heart-wrenching from either the beginning or at least the middle, but with this one, I didn't feel the "tug" until towards the end, near decision-making time. My greatest complaint is that I don't feel like the characters ever had an amazing connection, like others in his previous novels. I never felt all the love and warm fuzzies between these 2 like I did in other books, when just the thought of 2 people being together was enough to bring tears to my eyes! I don't know, anyone else feel the same way?
