Starbucks Features Free Greg Bear eBook

Until December 7th, Starbucks customers in the United States can access a free digital copy of Greg Bear’s new science fiction novel while visiting the coffee shop. The book trailer is embedded above.

The new Starbucks Digital Network chose Bear’s Hull Zero Three to feature in the coffee shop’s new in-store premium content. What do you think of the new program–would you read a free digital book at Starbucks?

Here’s more from Orbit: “Customers will be able to access the complete text of HULL ZERO THREE on their laptops, tablets, and many smart phones. Stop by your local Starbucks, put in your order, have a seat, open your laptop, log on. You’ll find HULL ZERO THREE in the Bookish Reading Club on the network’s Entertainment channel.”
