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.

Harry Potter is like a Fire

When i have rubbish feelings,(like mad,upset,sad, or confused) i like to pick up one of the books and read it. Sometimes its just one part, other times it's the whole series, but when in crapville read thourgh them. Trust me, you'll feel loads better.

Re: Harry Potter is like a Fire

HPaholic,

This is certainly one of my favorite aspects of the series. It's just a great escape. Even dipping into one of the heavy/sad/tense stretches of the narrative--just getting wrapped up for awhile is a mood-breaker, isn't it?

Half-blood prince confusion

i just finished book number 6, and I am stumper by something. Lupin told Harry that that the Half Blood Prince couldn't be his father because the book was from 50 years before, and Harry's dad was not in school at that time. But the book ended up being Snape's, who was in school at the same time as Harry's dad, doesn't make any sense!! help!

Hermione figured this out. The book must have first belonged to Eileen Prince, Snape's mother, who had gone to school 50 years earlier.

Re: Harry Potter is like a Fire

I have read each book at least 12-13 times, except maybe HBP, but I've probably read GoF and OOtP 16-17 times. I think OOtP has a dog-ear every other page. I have had at least 3 copies of each, because I read them to death!

Re: Harry Potter is like a Fire

I think the reason everyone loves to read the HP series when they are down is that it picks up your spirits. I am a married mother of 2 and I get down quite a lot because of fights with the kids and the hubby. I mean we don't fight all the time, but everyone has their moments.

I am reading DH slowly so that I don't miss anything. It helps me pick up my spirits at bedtime.

Why does it have to end?

JKR Please write another book series.
