Hudson Booksellers opens online store, ventures beyond overpriced sundries

Is it not enough to make a killing selling $5 bottles of Dasani and two-pill packs of Tylenol? Hudson Booksellers, from the folks behind those fine Hudson News airport establishments, has begun peddling e-books and book books online. The site, which appears to be (at least partially) powered by Kobo, offers a wide variety of titles, and some are even free. Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code is the current pro-bono selection — a click to download will bring you to a loosely branded Hudson page on Kobo’s site, though you can score other titles without hopping over to a partner. Who wouldn’t want to purchase prose from an online store that lists “Copywrite (C) Hudson Booksellers” at the bottom of the page, you say? We’re nearly sold, but it wouldn’t hurt to throw in a cross-platform incentive; a coupon for $4 off a 16-ounce bottle of purified water at any US airport or train station might just do the trick.
