Discovering authors beyond their pages…

Barnes and Noble FREE eBook Reader

July 28, 2009 By: larramiefg Category: Contests, News

By any chance is there a Kindle on your wishlist? If so, how thrilling would it be to click on ebooks for Everyone and immediately download the FREE Barnes & Noble eReader to your iPhone, Blackberry, PC or Mac?

You’ll read that its features include:

-Automatic downloads of your latest Barnes & Noble eBook purchases and samples
-Access to download eBooks from your Online Library anytime
-Bookmarks, note taking & highlight functionality
-Portrait or landscape display modes
-Customizable font, margins and page gestures

In addition there’s a Bonus of 6 FREE eBooks! And, with more than 700,000 titles to choose from (many at $9.99), most favorite authors and their books will be only a click away.

While this Fairy Godmother’s desire is to have you discover authors beyond their pages, even I couldn’t have imagined granting an opportunity to discover books beyond their physical pages too!

And there’s more. Julie Kilber, from What Women Write, left a comment on yesterday’s post announcing yet another contest underway this week.

Julie said:

“We have an interview with Jacquelyn Mitchard and a drawing for her upcoming No Time to Wave Goodbye over at What Women Write, too, if you comment before midnight (CST) Thursday!”

Do drop by after visiting ebooks for Everyone…it’s FREE!
