And just as you thought that your Amazon Kindle for the Web was enough to keep you busy all day, Barnes & Noble is launching a new service that offers an entirely new reading experience on your browser. Barnes & Noble, considered as the largest book retailer in the United States, is launching Nook for Web today. Nook for Web offers avid readers the capability to flip through the hottest digital titles and bestselling books right straight from their computer. Nook for Web can be accessed through today’s standard browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.
The company said that support for Internet-enabled tablets and smartphones will be arriving as well this fall. For a start, Barnes & Noble is now offering six bestselling NOOK books for free. Titles include Map of Bones by James Rollins, Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell, The Vow by Kim Carpenter, The Boxcar Children Summer Special by Gertrude Chandler Warner, Brave by Tennant Redbank and Perfect Island Getaways by Patricia Schultz.
