Barnes & Noble Pushes Ereading with Free Coffee

Coupled with its Nook ereader, Barns & Noble also launched ereading software for other devices. Now the company is offering anyone with an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, HTC HD2, Macbook or Windows laptop running the BN software a free cup of coffee.

It's weird that a bookshop would be promoting ereading like this. I mean I understand it's Barnes & Noble software and the offer is for a Barnes & Noble Café coffee, that part makes sense. It's just, why would anyone with an ereader (or ereading software) need to go to a bookshop in the first place?

But hey, different strokes for different folks; if it's your thing, all you have to do is show the barista your device running the BN software (with an ebook open) and you'll get your free drink.
