17th Nov 2009 | 10:50
Pink, trashy and guaranteed to bring a happy ending
Sony will launch a Mills & Boon version of its Pocket Reader – bringing the world of trashy romance to the high tech land of the eBook reader - on November 24.
Sony has high hopes for its eReader, with the Pocket Reader version the cheapest version from the manufacturer, and is hoping that a special edition will bring it to a wider audience.
The Mills & Boon version – billed as an ideal present for mothers, wives, sisters and girlfriends – comes with a fairly predictable rose pink finish and a premium case.
'Under The Boss's Misteltoe'
Plus, you'll get three Christmas themes Mills & Boon titles - Snowbound: Miracle Marriage, Under The Boss's Mistletoe and Christmas Betrothals – and a voucher for another ten.
"Harlequin Mills & Boon is the world's leading publisher of romantic fiction, with a Mills & Boon book sold every 3 seconds in the UK," says Sony.
"Established for over 100 years, Mills & Boon promises readers glamorous locations, irresistible heroes and – of course- a happy ending."
Of course, it could be just the thing to smuggle a new bit of tech into the house under the banner of romantic fiction.
We're intrigued to see if the next special edition will be a camouflage-covered Pocket Reader with a copy of Bravo Two Zero and Ross Kemp's autobiography – although that might be a bit cliché…
