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.

Re: halloween spookfest!!

ah, I don't actually remember much, just that I liked it. You know, maybe this was before you, but the goosebumps series? that's by him. how old are you again?

Actually I think he was more in the eighties. Not that I read them back then, just my elementary school was pretty much 'stuck in another time.' lol...

and yes, you're writing was great, you should be proud of yourself. Comment on mine, would you? please? :smileyhappy: I want comments, you see...tigerlilly and mrw are just too positive...no, I like positive, but they are the only ones!

No, Abi, I'm ashamed to admit it, but I haven't read his books. I sort of stuck with Stephen King from the very first time I read one of his books.
Either Mr. King has a brilliant imagination, or after his death somebody will unearth hundreds of skeletons buried around his property.
Only time will tell.
Hey, now THIS is an interesting idea for a haunted house story...

Re: halloween spookfest!!

I'm glad that I cheered you up from your pessimistic thoughts!!! (No offense meant if you don't know the meaning of that word. Even I just now learned it.) It seriously creeped me out to a major extent, though. Great work!!! Keep it up -- it made my day to read it since I hate the beginning of November!!!!!

Re: halloween spookfest!!

I didn't say that you said you were pessemistic (I really hope I spelled that right)-- I said that you were acting pessemistic.
By the way, if you didn't already know, the Goosebumps books have a TV series of their own on Cartoon Network and it ROCKS!!! It should be on tonight and tomorrow night (Saturday, November 3 and sunday, November 4). I think the creepiest one for me would be "The Revenge of the Garden Gnomes". No kidding!!!

Girl, you think your hair is a mess! I haven't combed mine since the fourth grade! It is what some call "The Mop"


Speaking of mountians of homework, I'm taking a little survey in my head so I was wondering how many hours of homework do you get a night at your school? Also, does everyone do all of it? Do you do all of it?
What subject do you have the most work in?

I know those questions are random, so I'm sorry. If anyone else would like to answer that question, it would be very helpful, no matter what level of schooling you are at. Go ahead, vent your scholastic frustrations! I want to hear it! You can PM the answer to me if you don't feel like posting it.

Re: halloween spookfest!!

In fact, I have a huge phobia of those horrible thingswhich call themselves gnomes. You would too, I'm sure, if you had heard the terrifying story about a living garden gnome which I have heard (note: it's not a Goosebumps story). Please tell me if you would like to hear it.
As for your other question, I prefer to call myself someone who is "young at heart". Not that I am one of those scary old ladies who play with dollhouses to keep themselves young!!! I think I would rather be forced to sit in a room full of cats for several hours (I'm horribly allergic to them) than be one of THOSE.

Re: halloween spookfest!!

Why does nobody miss me?
Yay! I thought nobody was going to make a post!
Haha! I spent Halloween with my family. It’s been tradition that we visit my granpa’s grave at the cemetery at this time of the year. **sigh
But I didn’t go partying or anything I just had a relaxed weekend. And I feel stress free. And that I think is what the holiday is all about. Actually , make that all holidays.. :smileysurprised:
