Go to Barnes & Noble, get a free e-book

Do you have a nook or the less elegantly named iRex DR800SG? If so, get thee to a Barnes & Noble store to participate in the new Fun and Free e-books promotion. It’s a pretty simple concept: you waltz into a Barnes & Noble store, get an access code, then download a free e-book. Done and done.

The promotion runs for the next five weeks, and is also compatible with the B&N e-reader software that runs on your laptop, BlackBerry, or iPhone (or whatever).

The first free book is “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency (The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Series #1)” by Alexander McCall Smith.

Nothing wrong with free summertime reading.
