Windows 8 users who download the Barnes and Noble “Nook” app can get seven free books and six free magazine subscriptions.

Start by downloading the app in the Windows 8 “Store.” To find the store, press the Windows key and type the word “store.”

To find the free books, beyond the three free books on the home screen called “Daily Shelf,” you have to swipe left, or scroll down till you get to the category called “Popular Lists.” There you’ll see a category called “Welcome Offer.” Here we found the six free magazines and four additional free books. The catch is you have to give them a credit card number first, but they don’t charge you. This is a marketing trick, of course; they’re not going to charge you but they hope you’ll buy stuff later as long as you’re already registered.
