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.

Start My Heart Again [NEW]

Start My Heart Again. 


Take my hand;

     Shatter my heart.

Kiss my lips;

     Stop my heart.

You are the one;

     That never loves me.

You are the one;

     That always needs me.


I don’t know how to say;

     I love you

     I love you

     I love you

I cant say;

     I hate you

     For not loving



Why cant we just;

     Be together


Why do we;

     Have to play these tricks?


Why cant we;

     Forget what we are told?


I have a problem;

     I only have eyes for you

You have a problem;

     You only have eyes for me.

So let’s stop;

     Those awful games.

And let’s start;

     Loving each other.

Just something I wrote. I haven't written a poem in a while, so I gave it a whirl.

Tell me your thoughts!

Sincerely Yours,

Re: Start My Heart Again [NEW]

Ack...I know exactly what it feels to be in the position of this poem!!! I know this one boy who really, really likes me, and I like him a whole lot, too, but we're both too shy to do anything about it! I was thinking of him this entire time I was reading this.
