OverDrive’s global ebook club, the Big Library Read, is back. This program is designed to demonstrate the power of e-lending in libraries. This season’s pick is Laurien Berenson’s A Pedigree to Die For.
Pedigree is Berenson’s first title in her Melanie Travis series. These cozy mysteries are perfect for lovers of thrillers and dogs alike. Readers will be kept on the edge of their seats as they discover a world of intrigue, foul play and deception. Book clubbers may share their thoughts on the title with other readers around the world through OverDrive’s Big Library Read Discussion board. They can also use the hashtag #BigLibraryRead on Twitter to tell OverDrive what they think.
Next week look for a recorded video interview with the author where she shares her sources of inspiration for her entertaining ‘tails’!
As with previous Big Library Read titles,Pedigree (available as an ebook only) will be available for two weeks (June 3 – 18) for all patrons to read at the same time without waitlists or holds. Checked out copies will expire at the end of the lending period and not at the end of the program.
Based on our previous experience, the program’s success doesn’t necessarily depend on any in-house advertising. But libraries interested in highlighting this program may wish to check out the marketing kit available from OverDrive.
