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.

Discussion Topic: The Secret to You

[ Edited ]
This chapter of The Secret focuses on the idea of energy -- both our own, and the Universe's. As Rhonda Byrne explains, "Everything is energy. You are an energy magnet, so you electrically energize everything to you and electrically energize yourself to everything you want."

What's your take on the "physics" behind The Secret, and how they apply to you?

Note: This discussion topic is particularly suitable for the chapter of The Secret entitled "The Secret to You" (pages 155 - 173).

Re: Discussion Topic: The Secret to You

With magnetism, positive attracts negative and positiv repels positive, so we are confused with the magnet statement. How does this work?

Re: Discussion Topic: The Secret to You

I was skeptical about The Secret's claims that physics, and specifically quantum mechanics, proves that the law of attraction is true...I could not really find anything definitive about it until recently. THE SECRET OF THE SECRET by Karen Kelly explains what physics has to do with THE SECRET, and a lot of physicists are interviewed in the book. It really cleared things up for me as far as the science goes...but the book also adds a lot to what is missing in THE SECRET. It's also fun to read.
