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.

  4. I am thankful for my talents, including writing (I hope, =D)
  5. I am thankful for my parents yelling at me because it means they care about me
  6. I am thankful for all the food that I push to the side of my plate because it means I have food to eat
  7. I am thankful for going to school because it means I have an education
  8. I am thankful for waiting in line for something because it means I have legs to stand on
  9. I am thankful for my glasses because it means I can see

Re: I'm Thankful For...

1. The breath I draw each day.

2. Interfering family, even when I wish them to Oz. It just shows they care.

3. My music for it is the door through which I pass to leave this world behind.

4. My mind for it is the source of my dreams and the mask behind which I hide.

5. The beautiful randomness of a fractured plan, never knowing what will happen next.

6. My library...Too many books, read too many times.

7. Nitro and aspirin.

8. Smudgie and Rue..They have listened to everything I have ever written, helped me battle through plotlines, and have been there when I needed, quiet, unfailing support, not another opinion. (I have enough of my own..).

9.The continuing play of light, shadow, elements, and cloud across the face of land and sea, for there are some things that are just to fleeting and magical to be captured on paper or film.

10. The freedom to dream, to hope, and aspire, to know that the only limits we set are our own...

Re: I'm Thankful For...

1.  My family who listen and care

2. My best friend who waits for me even when she shouldn't

3. My 14 fish you are still alive and who listen to all of my thoughts

4. My books who are always there to lift my mood

5. Stars so that night time isn't so scary

Re: Coffee Shop: Off Topic in the Writing Room

What are your plans for ringing in the New Year? Banging pots and pans at home? A night out dancing? Sleeping through the stroke of midnight?

We've got a black and white affair at the clubhouse; live band, dancing,  and Champaign at the stroke of 9:00 p.m. (12:00 NY time)  We're a retirement community......We retire early. :smileyvery-happy:

 

What are you up to, Brandi?

That sounds like fun. I'm hoping for a low key New Year's eve at home. That's the plan. If I don't make it to midnight, I'll be okay with that. There's no sleeping in the day after for me these days.

Well, that sounds good, too!   You can't sleep in?  Bummer.  I'm usually up at the crack of dawn, watching the Rose Parade, but find myself cat napping... hope it doesn't rain on the parade!
