Read With Me

Click here to view eBook details for The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone

Yesterday I went to a library network meeting and was excited to hear about a program that Overdrive is offering right now called Big Library Read. It’s like a digital version of a One Town, One Book event and it boils down to this: right now anyone with an Overdrive account can download the book The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone for free. Don’t have an Overdrive account? Check here and see if your library participates – and I bet they do – and then create one for free. Then go download the book and we can all read it together. It was selected by librarians so I’m betting its good. Hurry, though, because this offer expires on June 1st.

    I own, but alas have not read, this book yet. Maybe now? I bought it b/c another of Michael Malone’s books, Handling Sin, is my absolute favorite book in the world! I call it my desert island book b/c it is the book I would want to have with me if I was on a desert island and could have only one book. Even though it has been around for almost 30 years it is still in print, so treat yourself to it too!

    Thanks for the link! I just finished a book last night and was wondering what to read next. I have never read anything by this author.

    It’s on my Kindle. I’m in! I’m also doing TTL’s Mystery Shawl and all of a sudden I’m immersed in blogland fun again!

    Thanks for the info.! There hasn’t been any mention at all of the Big Library Read program from my local library, but thankfully you’re keeping all of your readers connected. It’s on my Kindle and I’m ready to read!

    Hmmm, this doesn’t look like it is going to be very easy. If a library is listed within Overdrive’s list of libraries does that mean they are participating in the Library Big Read? Or not necessarily?

    From Overdrive Media Console on my iPad I’ve added my local public library to its list but then when I do a search from within my library it doesn’t find the Malone book.

    My local library in Bettendorf, IA is participating in this event, and as soon as I finish the book I’m listening to now from Overdrive, I’m going to download a copy to my Kindle. My library is only about four blocks away from me, and it is one of my very favorite things about this community.

    My library showed up for using Overdrive but when I went to the book and picked a library my library wasn’t included. Too bad.

    Hey, our consortium is participating in this too! (I think libraries have to opt in – it’s not necessarily anyone with Overdrive.) I’ve had this book on my shelf for a couple of years – I met the author at Book Expo America – but haven’t read it yet. Guess now is the time!

    Unrelated topic: what is that green lace item in your banner? It’s lovely!

    My Library participates, but sadly so many of the titles on Overdrive are not Mac friendly so I rarely use it anymore :-( For Audio books at least, but maybe I should try again for ebooks.

    I’m having a problem with Overdrive for some reason but it’s OK. I’ve got $50 in Amazon cards and the book only costs $7.94. I’m in!

    Thanks! I just loaded it to my Kindle. Perfect timing as I just finished a book. I have read Dingley Falls as part of Duke REads (he and his wife are professors at Duke I read it with the online alumni book club) and love his books. Fun to read it as part of a group!

    I will follow the link and download. Is this downloadable to Kindle or is it iPad friendly? I may need some “Overdrive for Dummies” instructions…
