There's no denying that Barnes & Noble's Nook business has faced challenges lately. The bookseller may, however, have an extra trick up its sleeve to keep e-reader buyers coming back. Taking a page from the likes of Apple and Amazon, it's expanding Nook Free Fridays to include apps in addition to books. The gesture effectively doubles the volume of free loot each week as long as you've got a tablet like a Nook HD or HD+. Barnes & Noble isn't modest in kicking off the giveaway, either -- the inaugural deal is OfficeSuite Professional 7, which would normally carry a $15 price tag. Although the bargains might not be enough to trigger switches for those well-entrenched in Amazon's world, they could well stop any wandering eyes among Nook owners.
10. CDs and DVDs are going virtual much faster than books. And for all the interest in libraries providing ebook rental nobody is talking about libraries providing free music of video streaming. That will never happen.
OK reading this blog made me go back and buy Wickedly charming on Barnes and Noble. I agree with you when I am looking for something to read I start with my favorite authors of which you are definitely one. Then I go to B & N free nook books then b & N nook books under $5. After I read a book I make sure I rate and write a review of the book on b & n website. I think that for those looking for something new to read if no one has done that before you makes it harder to decide if you want to try the book. I discovered the Retrieval Artist series at Thanksgiving and have read all titles in the series at this point. Right now I am reading your book Traitors then I have Wickedly Charming and Fey:Destiny waiting to be read. I also agree that I prefer the series read over just a stand alone book. I tend to go through the whole series before I will go back to look through my list of favorite authors and I put on my nook wish list the titles coming up so that I do not miss the next book in the series.I do not know if my behavior is typical of the e book reader or not but this is what I do.
WRT nook, it might be their user unfrienliness. I tried getting a book some weeks ago and ended up filtering their mails as spam. I still receive more mails from them than from my other 5 e-bookstores combined. 2b1af7f3a8
