This is a great gift for children's birthday parties. Instead of buying a toy for your ungrateful nephew, why not print out a journal and encourage him to earn a free book instead?
I just love this kind of win-win promotions. By giving away free books, Barnes and Noble is creating a new generation of customers and literate citizens. More importantly, the journal entries requirement will also get kids into the blogging mindset early. Yes folks, I like to recruit good bloggers no matter how young they are!
