E-book aficionados have long been asking for for e-books to be bundled with the sale of a paper copy. Barnes and Noble is fulfilling that wish–at least for the holiday season. With the new B & N Sync Up! promotion, customers can purchase a paperback at a B & N store then get the e-book for $4.99. There are over 70 books to choose from, including bestsellers such as Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees and the Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Eligible titles will be marked with a “B & N Sync Up!” bookmark.
The program offers a great value because the purchaser can either keep both copies or give one away as a gift. Details of how the program works are available here at Barnes and Noble.com.
This is a special offer for the holidays, but the web site does not list the begining and end dates for the promotion. It is live on B & N now.
