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.

I hope this is the place for this.

I've always been a believer in the Law of Attraction - even when I didn't know it or actively practice it. I've had some very positive experiences after listening 'The Secret' almost daily. What didn't seem to register with me is the power of attracting the negative. You see, I had a dog (Tank) I just adored. This has been a year of incredible loss & trauma in my life, & Tank was an incredible comfort & joy that was helping me get through it. However, Tank's name could also have been Houdini. I've always been nearly obsessed with worry about his wandering ways. I've pulled him out of several close calls. Last month my distress hit a new level as I left town for 2 weeks. I was terrified he'd escape & get hit on the road behind our house. 2 days after I returned, he did. Now, looking for any comfort out there I've looked again to 'The Secret', & also 'Ask & It Is Given'. All I find is confirmation that I drew this to him by my obsessive worry. I'm looking for a way to deal with that. If nothing else, maybe someone else won't worry themselves into a broken heart.

Thanks for 'listening'.

Re: heartbroken

Hi Z:

Welcome to our Book Club on The Secret. I hope that reading the posts and stories here does provide a bit of comfort and/or inspiration -- but of course, my heart truly goes out to you; I'm so sorry to hear about the loss you've recently faced.

Are there any positive-thinking approaches you're currently trying out to help in your healing process?

Take care, and keep us posted.
