      Didn't see this anywhere but the Nook blog. Each weekend BN is offering a BOGO for selected Nookbooks, in store only http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/nook-barnes-and-noble-ebook-gift-offer/379003852

          Yes, I am surprised there has not been more comment about this. Great for those folks who live near a B&N brick and mortar. Otherwise you have to factor in the cost of transportation to and from the nearest store. For me that's a 20 mile round trip and considering the cost of gasoline probably not a significant money saving factor. I do like some of the recent happenings at our local store though. On recent visits I have picked up a number of bargain-priced DTB best sellers that were at less than eBook prices.

              I don't think this sale is fair at all. Not every town has a Barnes and Noble store nor a way to get to one. I live in a county where there are NO bookstores and no public transportation to other counties. Since I cannot drive, that means this sale is useless to me. Wake up, B&N! Not everyone has access to your physical stores. Sales like these are a slap in the face to those who do not drive.

                  Just because you can't take advantage of the sale doesn't mean it isn't fair.  You are not harmed in any way.  This is simply an extra deal available to those who go to the store.  It's just like the read in store feature, or getting to talk to someone at the Nook counter rather than talking to CS over the phone or via web chat.

                   

                  Jealousy =/= unfairness.

                   

                  Shouldn't you be glad that B&N even has an online store?  If online stores weren't available you'd be stuck with local alternatives only.  Be happy for what you have and quit thinking you're a victim.
