Barnes & Noble, Inc. ( NYSE: BKS), the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, is announcing a fantastic opportunity for fans of The Avengers graphic novels by Marvel Entertainment, one of the world's most prominent character-based entertainment companies, to get an exclusive discount on Barnes & Noble’s award-winning NOOK Tablet.

Customers who buy two Avengers digital graphic novels from a list of select titles in-store or online at Barnesandnoble.com/Marvel will receive a $30 discount on a new NOOK Tablet. The NOOK Tablet is priced at $199 for the 8GB version and $249 for the 16GB version.

“NOOK Tablet is the ideal device for our customers to enjoy Marvel's digital graphic novels in stunning high-resolution color that virtually makes the action leap off the page,” said Jim Hilt, Vice President, eBooks for Barnes & Noble. “We’re thrilled to offer comics fans everywhere this irresistible value of NOOK Tablet packaged with the best Avengers digital graphic novels available on NOOK.”

Once two eligible Avengers digital graphic novels have been purchased, in-store customers will be able to purchase a new NOOK Tablet in the same transaction for a $30 savings.

The online experience will be just as seamless for NOOK and Avengers fans. Customers will simply go to NOOK.com, click on the Avengers offer and choose two titles from the 20 available. Within 24 hours they will receive a link that will allow them to purchase their new NOOK Tablet at the discounted price.

“Marvel is proud to offer our content along with the best-selling NOOK Tablet,” said Peter Phillips, SVP & GM, Digital Media at Marvel Entertainment. “When you want to experience more of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Wolverine or any of our other iconic superheroes, there is nothing quite like a Marvel graphic novel.”

The NOOK Tablet utilizes the world’s most advanced VividView Touchscreen technology, offering readers a chance to experience the action-packed epics of The Avengers and all Marvel graphic novels on Barnes & Noble’s fastest, lightest tablet.

As with all NOOK products, customers can shop Barnes & Noble's expansive NOOK Store of more than two million digital titles. In addition, Barnes & Noble offers always free in-store NOOK support for customers to set up and learn how to use their new device face-to-face with friendly neighborhood NOOKsellers™.
