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.

Barnes & Noble - Peabody, MA

I was, at first, excited to find this forum but am left wanting more: face to face, hardcopy, coffee, reading aloud, marked up edits, etc.

 

Would anyone consider joining a writers group that meets at the B&N, Peabody  one night a month?

 

Let me know,

 

Tom

Joining a book club would  be fun. What do you like to read. I'm in the middle of A People's History of the United States.

Hello,

 

My post was in search of a writers group (not a book group), but thanks you for your response..

 

To answer your question, I am currently reading Stephen Kings "The Dome," as well as the Tao everyday, and periodicals including: Motorcycle magazines, pottery  magazines, and "Dwell."

 

Take Care,

 A good day to sit down with a good book,

 

Tom

We're scattered all over the world, so it might be tough to find local writers here. You might see if your local B&N has a group like this already. Or perhaps talk with them to see if there's interest in starting one. Good luck and I hope you come by here to chime in as well.

I for one think a writers group would be great but Montana is a little far away from where you're at. I wish you luck in finding a writers group.

Re: Barnes & Noble - Peabody, MA

I agree with Brandi, H-butterfield, and moonseeker. B&N users are all over the world, and so gathering them would be tough and hard--almost impossible... I loved the idea, but living in Philippines, an archipelago, I have no idea how I could join.
