Borders Launches Free eBook Store with Free Books Upon Download


How do you find reading a book on your BlackBerry? While it might not be all that great on a small screen, one could assume the eBook market will see a huge surge in activity once a BlackBerry Tablet is launched. We have heard the BlackBerry Cobalt Tablet will be more like a smartphone companion, making ideal for reading your eBooks (which are pretty easy to find for free on a BlackBerry due to the open nature of the platform).

The free Borders eBook Store is powered by Kobo, which also has its own eBook app for BlackBerry. While the app is available for download right now, it’s probably best to hold off because between July 9-11, anyone who downloads the free Borders app will get 5 free top-selling books. These free top-selling books include Frankenstein by Dean Koontz, One Shot by Lee Child, The Alchemyst by Michael Scott, Julia Child’s Kitchen Wisdom and Master your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels.

The information available from Borders says this app and probably the above deal, is for US residents only. The app is compatible with the Bold 9000 on OS 4.6, 9700 on 5.0, Curve on 4.5 and 4.6, 8500 on 5.0 and Tour on 4.7.

    I downloaded today - the 9th - but the above stated books are not showing up as free - any ideas on how to access these free books?

    I found the book by searching the title of the Jillian Michael one but it won't let me purchase it even though it is listed as FREE!!! Yours did not say it was free? It says my card # is wrong but I know it's not. Knew this was too good to be true.
