Re: We’d Like Your Input

Michael:

 

First I am just thankful that even SOME of the great classics have been even offered for FREE!!  I too, would love to be able to get a chance to download the classics that I missed. Unfortunately, I did not learn about them until the offer was nearly offer.  Or perhaps even an offer of first 20 for free, next 20 for $1.00, etc.......  I'm glad that I am not the only NOOK lover that wants this same ability.  I believe that you have more than enough titles for the 'final week.'  Just hoping to get a deal on the ones I lost out on.  If I can't - that is totally MY fault, and I still will have nothing but PRAISE for BN and NOOK, and missing out on a free deal won't change that.  One loyal BN customer and NOOK owner.

Re: We’d Like Your Input

First of all, thank you B&N for this wonderful gift of free Barnes & Noble Classics. I purchased my Nook for "reading mobility" (and I love it), so for me the freebies and promotions are a bonus!

 

That said, the Classics that I would love to see in next week's lineup are:

 

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Man in the Iron Mask

Middlemarch

Robinson Crusoe

Daniel Deronda

Way We Live Now

The Four Feathers

Howard's End

The Good Soldier

Tom Jones

Illiad

Odyssey

 

FInally, I want to thank all of you knowledgable posters. You have answered so many of my questions and given me many good tips for using my Nook!

Re: We’d Like Your Input

Speaking as someone who has been woefully  :smileysad: neglectful of the classics in her reading forays, I want to first thank BN for the opportunity of redemption with such a wonderful promotion!

 

Second, I would love to see any additional free classics offered and if they happen to satisfy the top requests in this thread (Seen Watson, anyone?) - even better.  However, if a favorite doesn't make the cut....or was offered earlier and was missed....it can be purchased for the EXTREMELY reasonable price of $2.99, maybe less!  You can't get much better than that....save the calories and skip the McD's combo for a few days to complete your collection.  How easy is that?

 

As for taking advantage of offers prior to purchase, second chances for previous freebies, research prior to purchase, monitoring the boards, etc. I believe it is important to remember it is all about choices.  We all make them and have to/get to live with the consequences.  You cannot or choose not to spend the necessary time monitoring these boards and opportunities will be missed.  That's life.  That's choice.  It does not make you less...nor does it make the person who was aware and able to get the freebie more....  It simply makes everyone's life consistent with their choices.  Example - I recently missed a great offer due to my habit of avoiding, if at all possible, my computer each weekend.  I missed the books but had a great afternoon with my family.  My choice.....my loss....my reward.

Hope to see you later at...

Re: We’d Like Your Input

Is it Friday yet? I'm ready for my last set of classics!

 

I'm also secretly hoping that the free friday book starts to be classics after this. I doubt that will happen, but crossing my fingers. :smileytongue:

Do you happen to know what each theme has been called so far?  My daughter was just asking me this morning what she missed out on.    I remember one being romance but that's all I can recall aside from the tear jerkers and the horror/scary set.

Re: We’d Like Your Input

My choices: Sherlock Holmes Vol 1 & 2 and anything else B&N is willing to give me.

 

Now that this promotion is ending, I'm looking f orward to what B&N will put together for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas (Dickens ?), Valentine's Day, etc.  Also looking forward to any time the Library of Essential Reading is offered.

Re: We’d Like Your Input

Being a new Nook owner, I loved finding the current classics being offered free. 

 

After reading many postings, I vote that you bring back the other classic offerings (like the All American classics, etc.) so all of us new Nook owners are able to download these for free also.
