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.

I finally did it!!!!!

I finally started the Harry Potter stories!! I was skeptical at first and also posted here sometime ago about whether the book would be enjoyed by adults. I read the first book and am currently on the second one and love them!!!! I am glad I finally started these late or not. I will have to keep my ears closed to spoilers on the last one. The rate I'm going I should have them all read pretty soon.

Thanks to all for you suggestions on this series!!!

I'm so glad you broke down and started reading the stories--in order, too! Let us know your reactions to each book; maybe we'll be seeing you on the Ministry of Spoilers board soon! BTW, be careful of this board it's infested with spoilers about the last book.

Re: I finally did it!!!!!

I started the series late too. I read the first 3 books after they had already come out in paperback. I read Prisoner of Azkaban right after it first came out. I waited in line at Wal-Mart for books 5 and 6 and finally went to a Harry Potter party for the last book. I had a really good time at the party too. So did my son. I have got him reading the series now and he really enjoys reading it too. My youngest son is just coming of age to start reading chapter books and hopefully he will get addicted soon. I would love for them both to get into reading more. I love using my imagination and feel like I am right there beside the characters.

Hopefully noone spoils the books for you.

Re: I finally did it!!!!!

Well, I just finished the first two and started the third book last night. I've seen the first three movies (although it has been awhile) so I knida remember what happens but even knowing that the books are sooo much better then the movies (but the movies are really good too!). This world that has been created by J. K. Rowling is absolutely wonderful. The imagination of it all is SPELLbinding. :smileyhappy: I am very impressed. My niece said that I started the series at the best time because all the books are written and available to purchase but I beg to differ. I think the anticipation of the next books arrival is a huge part of it. Especially with the first two not being disappointments like some series have. The climax is built! I feel there could be a little romance coming up. I sure hope so!!
