Exciting Free Fridays News!

Starting today, every Friday we'll be highlighting a free NOOK App in addition to each week's book selection. Read on to discover today's Free Fridays App pick.




Rhodes made a splash on the literary scene in the 1970s, but a tragic motorcycle accident derailed his promising career. Driftless is his first novel in 30 years, and it's certainly worth the wait. Set in a rural and remote southwestern Wisconsin town, Rhodes' novel explores the lives of ordinary people who face extraordinary challenges. From an invalid who gambles away her family’s savings, to a widowed pastor who’s falling in love again, the intertwined stories form a portrait of our varied and complex human condition.


Luckily you won’t have to wait another 30 years for David Rhodes' next novel. Jewelweed is available for pre-order now.


We wanted to make a big splash for our very first Free Fridays App, so we turned to one of our favorite and most useful apps: OfficeSuite Professional 7 – a $14.99 value!


In today’s mobile culture, we’re all used to the convenience of being able to work whenever and wherever we are. With OfficeSuite, you can create, view, edit and print Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files and attachments and view PDF files right on your NOOK. So when you’re at lunch and get an urgent email from your boss, just open OfficeSuite to get to work while you’re on-the-go.


Once you’ve used OfficeSuite Professional 7 a few times, you’ll wonder how you survived without it, so make sure you grab this limited-time free offer today!




Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what David recommends:

I was so excited with the free app, I was happy that it was a new thing this week, I was afraid that I'd missed it all along.


The book sounds really good as well.

Thanks for adding a free app on Fridays!  This week's book isn't "grabbing" me but I do hope others enjoy it.  I've read a lot of great books that I might not have otherwise picked up because of Free Fridays!
