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.

Dear Reader,


         Hi, I am 15 years old. My name is Victoria. I recently began writing poems to pass the time when I moved to recently from a place where I felt I didn't fit in and still do sometimes, feel as though I don't belong. As time goes on I realize just how much I love to write poems. I like writing them so much that I decided to create a website displaying some of my poems. The ones that I believe to be my best ones are not posted on the site because I hope to publish them one day which I will work on after my Beauty and the Beast poem is officially published. I'd appreciate it if you would take time out of your day and look at my website to read some of my poems at . Thank you for your support!!! :smileyhappy:

Here is one of the poems that is on my site:





I can't help but to stare,

as I melt under your glare.

Your gaze putting my nerves on edge,

rising every strand of hair.

Feeling as though my heart could stop,

yet it pulses a steady beat.

My throat throbbing with hunger,

as it always does whenever we meet.

Your hand reluctant to reach for me,

as your soul is hesitant,

yet no one person could change,

these feelings in which we neglect.

I really like it!  As you read it, your writing style kind of gives you a visual, so that you can watch the scene in your mind as you read.  Keep posting!
