Barnes and Noble released the February line-up for the More In Store promotion where Nook owners can download exclusive content each week by visiting a B&N retail store.
Barnes and Noble also announced the “Spotlight” pick for the month of February. This is a new promotion where they offer the first book in a series for $0.99.
February’s Spotlight pick is Baltimore Blues, the first book in Laura Lippman’s ‘Tess Monaghan’ series. It normally sells for $7.99. It has a 3.5 star rating over 14 reviews at B&N. Here’s the description:
Unemployed at twenty-nine, Tess Monaghan is willing to take any freelance job to pay the rent-including a bit of unorthodox snooping for her rowing buddy, Darryl “Rock” Paxton. In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz’s death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer’s notoriety-and his noontime trysts with Rock’s fiancée-make the case front page news…and points to Rock as the likely murderer. But trying to prove her friend’s innocence could prove costly to Tess.
As for the More In Store promotion, if you own any model of Nook ereader you can take it to a Barnes and Noble retail location to access the free exclusive content listed below by connecting to B&N’s free WiFi and tapping the “Shop” icon.
