Since 1997, you’ve been coming to 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, 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.

Some Hearts


Some Hearts


            You told me you                                       loved me, told me

        I was the girl for you,                              that there was no one but

     me, could never be another.                    Called me beautiful as you'd

   caress my hair with you finger                tips, send electrifying jolts of

    excitement through my veins, made me    believe that, even when I'd

      look in the mirror and doubt        what you'd say, these words were

        true. But then, just as I began         to feel it too, you let me fall, a

           glass vase against concrete,    shattered me entirely. You say

               you loved me, that there could    never be another girl-

                   and yet I caught you serving        it up hot 'n‘ steady

                       to a bleach-blond I never even   knew that you

                           knew, threw all our     moments together

                                 aside like they   didn't even matter.

                                     Do you know   how much I still

                                       cry over that   fated day? Do

                                           you realize that    some

                                                hearts    just can't

                                                    take    this

                                                       kind  of

                                                          hu  rt?
