Tongues are wagging about the Big Library Read. If you are interested in going undercover and sniffing out a killer, you will want to fetch this e-book by Laurien Berenson: A Pedigree to Die For. Berenson’s first book of her Melanie Travis Mystery Series will be available for download just a bone’s throw away, starting June 3 and concluding the morning of June 18. The e-book can be read—as quickly as a dog can lick a dish—on iPhones, iPads, Nooks, Android phones, tablets and Kindles, as well as computers and laptops. The e-book will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are no late fees. Hot diggity dog!
Yes, it’s easy to be swept up with the fun of dog puns. It’s just as easy to be swept up with the fun of the Big Library Read, which was created by a partnership between OverDrive, a leading digital distributor of e-books, and Kensington Publishing Corporation, publisher of author Laurien Berenson’s mysteries. An international program, Big Library Read allows library card holders around the world to download and read the same e-book, with unlimited and simultaneous access during the program dates, creating a virtual global book club, with no wait lists and no holds.
It’s as if every person will have the pick of the litter (sorry, it’s so hard to resist). Imagine that—for two weeks the entire world will be going to the dogs, reading a fur-raising murder mystery and tracking a dogged killer whose bark may not be worse than his bite. So don’t drag your tail. Mark your calendar for June 3. On that day you will be able to access the e-book here: http://jpl.lib.overdrive.com. The only bad news is you won’t be able to dog-ear the e-book, doggoneit!
