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.

Her Dream (poem)

Her Dreams

She dreams.
Dreams of no yelling
no fighting
smiles of joy
laughs of happiness
but this is her dream
not her 'life'

Her eyes jump open
to the sound of shouting
returning to her 'life'

She wishes
wishes for her dreams
to come true
she knows
somewhere in her heart
her dreams will come true
maybe not now
but someday

That is what keeps her living.
her dreams
her wishes
her hopes.
That is what keeps her living.

Wow. This is really good. The line where it says "but this is her dream not her life" really hit me hard. It was sad about how her dreams are the only thing keeping her going. But still its really good and im glad you put another up. Great Job!!

That poem is really good! I love it! :smileyhappy: Like "her" in your poem, I live for my dreams too.
