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.

Lettered Pages

Lettered Pages

By: kimbeey13

 

 

Between the colored spines

I found a calamity within fragile pages,

Ink seeps through open pours,

Found deep in volumes throughout the ages.

 

Chronicles as bitter as aged wine

Left alone to its rage,

Ingesting the mysterious secrets held,

Overwhelming the pitch-black stage.

 

The words they hold are hard for me to define

Though it’s still hard to disengage

My eyes from the sheet - the story,

For I’m drawn to the shadows and catastrophe of the ages!

Re: Lettered Pages

Loved your poem. This line, in particular caught me: Ingesting the mysterious secrets held, over-whelming the pitch-black stage. A very wonderful poem.:smileyhappy: Keep it up!
