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.

Re: To Ziki and Bob: EH

Pmath, I'm glad you've been here all along as a silent observer. Oops! I've been spending too much time on the Whitman page!

Ha! I did go back after the hiatus, and now I'm back here, but only to say that although I'm enjoying reading EH's stories very much, I've been reading only one per week: I need time to really think about each of them.

So, thank you, Bob, for introducing me to EH's work: although I didn't participate, I did follow the discussions on the stories I read, and I have a year of wonderful reading to look forward to!

Walt Whitman's "I Sit and Look Out"

Not at all: the following lines are appropriate here, don't you think?

I sit and look out upon all the sorrows of the world, and upon all oppression and shame;
I hear secret convulsive sobs from young men, at anguish with themselves, remorseful after deeds done;
...
I see the wife misused by her husband—I see the treacherous seducer of young women;
I mark the ranklings of jealousy and unrequited love, attempted to be hid—I see these sights on the earth;
...
All these—All the meanness and agony without end, I sitting, look out upon,
See, hear, and am silent.

me too, pmath, it is a rather slow process actually. I read the cat in the rain days ago and it seems like it needs a lot of incubation ..heheh...kinda interesting process of digesting the poison...ROFL.
