The Hundred Lies Of Lizzie Lovett is the next Big Library Read

October 10, 2017


On October 12, the Big Library Read will return to connect millions of library users around the globe as the world’s largest digital book club once again takes place. This time around, we’ll be reading The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti, a YA mystery surrounding a young girl who finds herself in the middle of a missing person’s investigation. Join us as we see the world through Hawthorne’s sarcastic view point as she both can’t understand why Lizzie Lovett’s disappearance is a such a big deal while also becoming obsessed with Lizzie herself. Told with a unique voice that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Hawthorn’s quest for proof may uncover the greatest truth is within herself.

We’re excited to announce that not only will the eBook of this title be available from October 12-26 without any wait lists or holds, but readers will also be able to borrow the audiobook as well. During the event, you’ll also find a Professional Book Nerds podcast interview with Chelsea as well as a live discussion board so readers can interact with each other and the author herself!

Join the global eBook club – The Big Library Read

June 13, 2017

Join in The Big Library Read – the worldwide digital book club that connects millions of readers around the world with the same eBook at the same time without any wait lists or holds. All you need to get started reading is a library card.

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

In the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe, The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein’s enormous shadow. It is the story of Einstein’s wife, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight.

Mitza Maric has always been a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds are wives by now, not studying physics at an elite Zurich University with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mitza is smart enough to know that, for her, math is an easier path than marriage. And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and the world turns sideways. Theirs becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage.

The Big Library Read runs from June 12 – June 26, 2017.

From now until the end of March, library members from around the world can borrow the eBook and audiobook of the #1 New York Times best selling American Sniper. With no wait lists or holds, the Big Library Read creates a digital “global book club” as readers can experience the same title together.

American Sniper by Chris Kyle  From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.
