Would You Like a Novel with Your Frappuccino?
Starbucks, the world’s largest multinational chain of coffee shops, will begin offering books for sale alongside its beverages starting this fall.
The company announced this week plans to periodically add books to its retail merchandise at more than 5,400 locations throughout the United States. The program will launch with Mitch Albom’s newest novel, “For One More Day.” Hyperion Books will publish the book on Sept. 26, and it will appear in Starbucks a week after it becomes available in traditional retail stores. The book will be on sale at Starbucks locations from Oct. 3 until the second week of November.
