We sadly have seen Barnes & Noble close many of its brick and mortar stores, but that doesn’t mean they have gone away. Times have changed from the times I used to hangout at Barnes and Noble and browse books and magazines before I made a purchase. We now consume more and more digital content as we see paper books and newspapers become obsolete.
That doesn’t mean B&N isn’t keeping up with the times though. They recently announced Readouts which is a new way to experience content in bite-sized pieces. With so many books to choose from, a digital library can be daunting to sort through and B&N is helping solve that problem with Readouts on the Nook digital experience.
B&N Readouts leverages Barnes & Noble’s vast content catalog and deep
bookseller knowledge to deliver a daily selection of addictive and
compelling quick reads that can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere on all NOOK
by Samsung devices, through Free NOOK Reading Apps for Android and iOS
devices, and at BN.com/readouts.
Readouts offers free one to five minute book excerpts and full articles from popular periodicals which are tailored to your own interests. This should help improve your selections and hopefully improve customer satisfaction. It should definitely make sorting through thousands of books less daunting.
If you want to learn more, head on over to B&N Readouts. I still miss bookstores though and hope they make a comeback in the future.
