Free book alert! “The Night Circus” at Starbucks!
Being one who frequents Starbucks, I’m used to seeing the little itunes Pick of the week cards, which contain a code to download a song or music video.
Until yesterday, I had never seen a Pick of the week that was for an ebook download, and I’m elated – because the book you can download is Erin Morgenstern’s “The Night Circus,” which I was about to go buy anyway. (Neil Gaiman raved about this book when he spoke at the Chicago Public Library recently.)
Granted, I think you have to read it on an Apple device, but I think there’s a way to read the book on your PC. (I’m still looking into this aspect of it.) Also, I’m not sure exactly which Starbucks locations are offering this, but I’m sure they’re around – especially in the Chicago area.
So woot! Go get a free ebook – and one that’s supposedly one of the best reads of the year!
UPDATE: Apparently it’s not the entire e-book, but a sample of the book. Slightly disappointing, but still – if you were on the fence about buying the book, it could be a good preview. (Thanks, Travis, for commenting and letting me know!)
