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.

A poem

This is a poem for those of use who have to much time on our hands.

We the mere mortals of this plain of existences need for some reason to create something bigger than ourselves. But I say, do we really need it. What's the use, we just sit around and wait for them to tell us its our time! Who are they to tell us when to die do we not have our own free will can we not decide for ourselves when it is our time. Now by the hit of a car or the height of a cliff, then we may die but I'm not going to sit around and wait for some higher power to tell me to die!

This is not of course my acual belief I'm a devoted Christian and belive that god has the power and the right to tell us its our time.
