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.

Around me, kids get books for Christmas. Toys, games, PlayStations...and books! But I don't reserve the so-called "kids books" like fairy tales only for lucky children on my list: There are plenty of takes on these oft-fearsome folk stories that make perfectly fascinating reading for adults as well. 


Charles Dickens wrote more than a dozen major novels and hundreds of stories...but he couldn't quite finish that last one. The Mystery of Edwin Drood is only half a book--but it's a whole Broadway musical, quite popular and wonderfully revived on the Great White Way in fall 2012. The audience gets to determine the end in this version, and I was thinking...How many other unfinished novels would we like to wrap up? For adventurous readers who can forego "knowing how it all turns out," these titles can make some provocative gifts.
