Free eBook(s) of the Day: Barnes & Noble’s Summer eBook Giveaway

nookie23.jpg

For this editor’s last official free eBook of the day, here’s a way to get five free eBooks, though you’ve got to be patient. Barnes & Noble is running a promotion by which it will give customers a free eBook by a bestselling author each week for the next five weeks.

All you’ve got to do is own a Nook or download a free Barnes & Noble eReader app for your mobile device. Then you bring your Nook or iPad or whatever with you to a B&N store, show it off to an employee, and you’ll get a voucher for a free eBook. This week’s title is Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

You don’t much–or any–choice in terms of what eBook you get, but this is a clever ploy on B&N’s part to get customers to not only read eBooks but to visit the store, too. Smart. Very smart.
