Kobo e-reader available for Faimont Gold members
Fairmont Hotels will give their Gold members at ten locations in the US and Canada the opportunity to use a Kobo eReader during their stay. Each contains new Random House bestsellers and have access to the Kobo e-book store for purchasing other books. When guests return their readers, they will get coupons for $2 off certain Random House e-books.
The titles will include e-books written by authors such as Bret Easton Ellis, Sophie Kinsella and Alexander McCall Smith, among others. All will be free to read for Fairmont's Gold members. The Kobo eReader is otherwise available for $150 at Borders in the US and at Indigo Books & Music and Walmart stores in Canada. [via CrunchGear]
