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.

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far."
H.P. Lovecraft
There are SO many good quotes out there, but this is the first one that came to my mind.

This quote is from the song "Leave Out All The Rest" by Linkin Park. I love it because it was cleverly crafted and really brings a message across.

"I'm strong on the surface, but not all the way through. I've never been perfect, but neither have you."

- Alana

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I have taken the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference."
"The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost

'Did you ever walked up to the edge of a cliff, stare into the abyss as your mind wonders if you should take one more step further into that night.  Your mind says won't, but your heart says you might.  Would you fall through the dark, feel the wind in your hair.  Would you ever race the ground...ending...and then that moment you fly...'  - Epiphany
