"WHAT IS A QR CODE?" A QR code is a 2-dimensional code which, when scanned by a barcode reader, brings the user to a document, webpage, email, text or phone number. One of the beauties of a QR code is that users don't have to enter in long url's to access a webpage or contact info, they just scan the barcode.
Come check-out out our books on display which have QR codes linking to book trailers. Just scan the barcode with your smartphone and the book trailer will atuomatically open on YouTube!
One of the books we have on display is Winter's Bone of which the movie version is nominated for the 2011 Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress. We have a QR code which links to the movie trailer.
