With the nook 1.1.0 update nook owners now have access to store specific content, including short ebooks and coupon offerings. The first coupon to appear is for a free cookie each time you show the barista your nook and the coupon ($1.95 priced cookie).
Your nook will automatically pick up that you are in a Barnes & Noble store and the B&N symbol will appear next to the wireless status symbol.

The nook is held in place while also having a good screen protection mechanism while carrying your nook in your bag.
The Latitude Jacket zips closed on the nook to keep it held securely in place.
