My preferred ebook read is the B&N Nook and so I was pleased to hear of a summer promotion from Barnes & Noble. Over the next five weeks they will be giving you five free ebooks from bestselling authors as part of their Fun and Free eBook promotion. You will need a Nook, iPhone/iPod Touch, HTC HD2, or other supported device with their BN eReader software on it to read the books. The announcement for this special promotion also stated that an iPad-optimized version of the BN eReader software is scheduled for release in May.
The promotion begins today and you simply visit the promotion site, enter the access code at www.bn.com/redeem (obtained on your Nook while in a physical Barnes & Noble store), download the free ebook to your library, and enjoy on your devices. The five free titles that you will be able to download are:
- The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith (first week's free title)
- The Long Tail by Chris Anderson
- Home Safe by Elizabeth Berg
- Storm Front by Jim Butcher
- One Shot by Lee Childs
Remember that this is an in-store promotion, so you need to go into a B&N store and show your Nook or BN eReader on a device to get the access code. The bookseller will help you download the free BN eReader on your device to receive a free eBook if you don't have the software loaded on your device. It is always great to get some free ebook content so I plan to get these books and check them out.
