Big Library Read

My library just joined this "global eBook club" and their first title is now available. It's a collaboration between Overdrive and participating publishers. The selected title for the next 2 weeks is Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard by Laura Bates. If your library participates, you can borrow this title for free without a waiting list.

Here's their website for more info:

All library borrowing is free, as far as I've heard.

Not so -- usually it costs time and patience.

Most of the well-known good books have a waiting list.

Thanks for that info, seems my library participates. It's a real treat to be able to instantly get a book from my library!

Enjoy having one book you don't have to wait for.

I can usually find several, just in the ordinary course of things... and the selection is better.


Now -- if I wanted this book, which of the 4 libraries offering it to me would I patronize?

Thank you for sharing this; I like participating in Big Read events.

This is an international event and, worldwide, there are some libraries that charge a subscription fee, albeit not a pay-to-play fee per loaned item.

Fortunately, multiple library systems that I patronize are participating in this Big Read since the book's on hold at the one I tried first, NYPL. I ultimately borrowed it from Queens Public Library.

Thanks for the heads up on this. The book looks interesting and there should be discussion questions posted on the website later.
