Well… Barnes & Noble has a new promo — the NOOK Daily Find: Today’s Great Book at a Great Price! So, Nook owners need not be envious of those with Kindles! 😉

And the new deal is…

The Five People You Meet in Heaven‘ by Mitch Albom (Hyperion) is now available at the specially discounted price of $3.60 on the B&N Nookbooks site. Hopefully Amazon will price match!

Book Description

From the author of the life-changing Tuesdays With Morrie comes this lyrical novel exploring the extraordinary meaning of a seemingly ordinary life.

Part melodrama and part parable, Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven weaves together three stories, all told about the same man: 83-year-old Eddie, the head maintenance person at Ruby Point Amusement Park. As the novel opens, readers are told that Eddie, unsuspecting, is only minutes away from death as he goes about his typical business at the park. Albom then traces Eddie’s world through his tragic final moments, his funeral, and the ensuing days as friends clean out his apartment and adjust to life without him. In alternating sections, Albom flashes back to Eddie’s birthdays, telling his life story as a kind of progress report over candles and cake each year. And in the third and last thread of the novel, Albom follows Eddie into heaven where the maintenance man sequentially encounters five pivotal figures from his life (a la A Christmas Carol). Each person has been waiting for him in heaven, and, as Albom reveals, each life (and death) was woven into Eddie’s own in ways he never suspected. Each soul has a story to tell, a secret to reveal, and a lesson to share. Through them Eddie understands the meaning of his own life even as his arrival brings closure to theirs.
