Barnes and Noble has announced some big savings on their Nook Audiobooks app for Android. The company is taking advantage of the media publicity and launching a big campaign.
Kashif Zafar, VP, Digital Content at NOOK outlined to Good e-Reader exactly what they are doing. “To celebrate Audiobooks month, in the first two weeks of June, the NOOK Audiobooks for Android app will feature a number of collections focused on bestsellers and highly engaging titles for customers who want to listen to audiobooks while they “multi-task”. Because we know that people often listen to audiobooks while doing something else, we’ve created unique collections for a number of various activities — for example, we have a list of favorite audiobooks for commuters, a collection for people who work around the house, one for people who exercise, one for crafters, and more.”
Kashif went on to say “Following on the heels of that, running June 14-22, we will have a Father’s Day 40% off sale that showcases audiobooks that dad (or anyone!) would love: blockbuster thrillers, biographies, and more. And of course, a permanent feature we have is our Daily Find, which Android customers can find by going into the app and scrolling down on the Shop Home – it features unabridged audiobooks at 60% or more off the list price. We’re excited to put these collections and programs together for our customers to help them discover great audiobooks that we love.”
