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.

I don't want to fight

But when I am cornered

By evil doers I have only one answer

Re: Name that character

Riddle me, riddle me, riddle me, ree...

How many strawberries grow in the sea?

And I answered him as I thought good...

As many red herring grow in a wood.

Dancing.  Chittering.  Spittlekins.

Old Mister Brown...

Bouncing and bobbing up and down.

An ill judged leap...

A soup I nearly was...

Now more of a Manx than anything else.

Right, video game, the character is Ryu.  Ryu in the anime based of the games, is always traveling looking for peace but never finds it.

Re: Name that character

I was meant to be a king

But my uncle killed my father

And blame it on me

Feeling guilty

I ran away

My uncle destoryed

My kingdom

Until I made my return

And took my place

With a roar

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.

Re: Name that character

When I was very young

My parents were taken

I lived but, would forever

Carry the mark of that day

I lived with my aunt and uncle

Who treated me horrible

But, then on my birthday

I was taken to a grand place

I learned magic at school

And that my enemy still is around

He wants me dead

And I want to avenge my parents

Re: Name that character

I seek out mysteries all over

It is what drives my life

Testing my ability of observation

With my friend along my side

Recording my every case

In his writings

We will solve every case that  

Comes our way

For the game afoot

And it's elementarily

Re: Name that character

My answer is for this riddle: ((I didn't see it answered)) Most of my coworkers think I'm crazy But I know they are out there People joke and try to discredit me But I know with every case solved I am one step closer To the truth I would say it was Mulder from x-files! ((sorry if it's already been answered))

Re: Name that character

I am a good detective

But I never can catch 

The most evil of villains

He taunts me 

The giant rat

If I could only have 

The lead I need

I can prove

I'm the best detective

In all of mousedom

Re: Name that character

My research on egypt wasn't important

Until I found a hidden meaning

That our galaxy was connected

By gates across the universe

Suddenly the military wants my input?

They want me on a team 

To travel through these gates

I've learned a lot through my travels

Through the gate

I've also made a friend

That was supposed to be my enemy

But, I have great respect for him

To stand against the culture

That believed that his former leaders

Were Gods among men

And I always know

That there's still something to learn

Every time I step through the gate
