OverDrive's Big Library Read is back 


The Big Library Read is back and, due to an overwhelming response last time, there are now two titles on offer.

The genre this time around is Young Adult and the winning titles are The door in the hedge by Robin McKinley and In the shadow of blackbirds by Cat Winters.

This global event runs from 7 October through to 21 October and enables  readers from around the world to enjoy the same eBook titles at the same time, creating a worldwide book club.
