B&N "Free Friday" Book for 10/14/11 (Sony)

FREE FRIDAY ON BARNES & NOBLE INCLUDES 2 FREE BOOKS! "BLUE", AND IT'S PREQUEL "UNTIL AGAIN".

BLUE: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Blu.../9781936558018

UNTIL AGAIN: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Unt.../9781936558254


Today’s Free Fridays title is Blue by Lou Aronica—a touching story about a father and daughter who grow closer during a very unique adventure.

While Chris is adjusting to the aftermath of his divorce, he feels like his teenage daughter Becky is slipping away. When Becky was younger, she and Chris created a majestic fantasy world as a way to cultivate her impressive imagination. But when the queen of this imaginary land, Miea, comes to life right before their eyes, Becky and Chris are excited and a bit perplexed. It seems that the imaginary world they created has developed a life of its own, and Miea is recruiting them to help her uncover an important secret that will keep her beautiful land safe from harm. If you enjoy a dose of genuine human relationships and struggles paired with a fantastical plot, Blue is the perfect read for you.

As a special bonus, the prequel novella to Blue, Until Again, is available for free as well, so you can learn how these compelling characters came to be.

There are numerous - and I do mean numerous - complaints about the smallness of the font.

An adventure cannot be "very unique" - it either is unique, or it isn't. There are no "degrees" of uniqueness.

Why is the font this small? It does not seem to change if you set the size bigger.

If that's the case, the book creator has hard-coded the font size. That's a BAD THING in an eBook.

I just picked up the book from B&N and it is, indeed, an unchangeable font.

Harry's right: It's a bad thing.

And I'll add, too: It is ludicrous and undesirable.

Blame the B&N Free Friday blogger! I didn't write this "blurb", just copy n pasted to pass along...

It's a shame that the ebook is hard to read - I'll have to check it out.
