"A richly imagined world. Readers will enjoy the mind-bending fun of puzzling together small details."




Una Fairchild is a devoted reader, escaping her less-than-ideal life by losing herself in fairytales. So when she wakes up to find herself ‘written in’ to a sweeping fairytale, she’s initially excited for the adventures ahead. Her new world is populated by her favorite fictional characters, and Una’s delighted to learn about their world. But the plot of Una’s story soon takes a dangerous turn, and she must band together with her newfound friends to make sure they all live happily ever after.


Storybound is a wonderful book for instilling a passion for reading and storytelling in young readers, so make sure you share today’s Free Fridays selection with your favorite little NOOK readers. They’ll be so enthralled with Una’s journey, they’ll want to jump right into her next adventure in the pages of Story’s End, available now on NOOK.

I am so glad for the children's book! I think that for the most part they are rich with imagination and well thought out so I look forward to exploring this one.  I also love the holocaust bio, I love reading about others experiences and learning from what they have over come and what there is to be shared.  As always has a wonderful weekend and keep reading and always feel free to share the wonders you have discovered by doing so!


P. S.

A big shout out to B&N and everyone who posted links to other free books and apps today. I love Free Fridays! I always find something of interest to keep me happy and satisfied for another week and when you're reading, it's the very best place to be. 

by Quiltist on ‎04-05-2013 08:38 AM

How about Free Fridays selecting more grown up reading material? How many kids have Nooks?

by PH03N1X on ‎04-05-2013 08:40 AM

Thanks everyone for posting the free books and apps this week :smileyhappy: I always look for ward to Fridays!!! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

by duke50 on ‎04-05-2013 08:43 AM

Thank you for the free Fridays additions!  I think you all do a great job of finding a wide variety of books for all ages, interests etc!

@Quitlist  I actually know a lot of kids that have Nooks whose parents appreciate the free books too!

by Sandy_D on ‎04-05-2013 08:58 AM

Thank you for the book sale!!!! I found three books that I had been wanting but could not quite justify for the price. Now I have all three!! The titles I bought were: "Molokai", "Relic" and "Mai Tai One On". I'm a huge fan of mysteries and anything about Hawai'i since we own a vacation rental home on the beautiful Big Island of Hawai'i!

by Princess_Peaches on ‎04-05-2013 09:31 AM

@Quiltist... Even if kids don't own their own Nook, I'm sure a lot of parents allow their kids to use their Nook to read books and play games. My kids are often kept busy with it on long car rides.

by Moderator dhaupt on ‎04-05-2013 09:46 AM

Thanks Jeremy and B&N this is perfect for the first warm weekend in a Long time


I hope everyone enjoys there weekend and their free Nook book too!!!
