So while linking to Maya Banks’ Colters’ Woman at B&N for yesterday’s review, I noticed that they had Colters’ Wife free as a promotion. No one to waste a chance (hello, poor beleaguered budget) I clicked on it faster than blinking–only to be told that I needed to create an account with them.
But okay–free book, some hoops, not bad.
Account created, click and…”give us your credit card information.”
If the book is free, what the fuck do you need that for?
Cue email to customer service. Their reply: “We provide free NOOK Books to enable our customers to test the NOOK App on their device of choice. ”
See, I am techno impaired, both by nature and inclination. If I can’t “point and shoot” then it’s useless to me.
I never download any free kindle books because I won’t download the kindle app, and now I know that I’ll never download any B&N books either.
