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.

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 looked for the book to see what it was about and I (sort of) read a synopsis. I think that Darkkin or Fleetfoot would know how to find it: they like to follow glowing, shiny things, ya know :smileywink:.

Re: Coffee Shop: Off Topic in the Writing Room

I remember very strongly a book my mom used to read to me when I was barely learning how to read myself. I know it had a bunny in it and it was very short, because I memorized the whole thing eventually. I don't even know if I read the words or if it was from hearing it soooo many times. I want to say it was about Easter, too. I didn't really get started on the book obsession until about fifth grade with Goosebumps and Nancy Drew.

And I thought I was the only goosebumps fan I use to has a lot of those books and the movies one that stood out to me(I no longer recall the title) was the one about the camp where the character was tested to go to earth.

Re: Coffee Shop: Off Topic in the Writing Room

I still remember the Halloween one (well, the kid was in a costume shop anyway), where the kid puts on the mask and it like possesses him or gets stuck on his face. I don't remember how it ended though . . . May have to look it up.

Don't remember how it ends though . . .  May have to look it up. Give me something to do on my day off besides clean the house (already ready for a nap!).

Re: Coffee Shop: Off Topic in the Writing Room

I found it! It was The Haunted Mask (I wish the name had been more complicated. I feel quite silly for not remembering it!) This walk down memory lane is making me all nostalgic. Fear Street, with it's crazy cheerleaders and the Babysitter series (ah, the memories and fear) adn all the cool names (Say Cheese and Die!). You think my library would still have them? It's only been like thirteen years, and they don't get new books very often :smileyvery-happy:.

It's like a ghost town here today, isn't it? The others are probably off doing something, like having lives, I suppose. (Sigh)

Re: Coffee Shop: Off Topic in the Writing Room

I guess I will claim my pets today, since they did not wake me up this morning (I usually say that they are my mother's when they are being unecessarily mean). I have a dog, Bella, and two cats, Autumn and Roxy (sisters). They are being unusually quiet today, as well. Must be a Sunday thing. I always wanted a lizard, but I was too afraid that my other pets would eat it if it got out. You know, with all the Goosebumps discussion, I think I'm inspired to write something. I haven't done that in ages. I'll probably post it on here before the day is done.

I claim Shadow my gray tabby cat.  My mom got a German Shepard Dog named Molly, and then there's also her cat B.B. which means bad boy.  LOL

Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.
