Happy Read an Ebook Day!

Happy Read an Ebook Day!

It’s that time of year again! I’m not referring to pumpkin spiced lattes and sweater weather (although I’m excited for those too). No, September 18th is the day literature lovers everywhere celebrate Read an Ebook Day.

Why should we celebrate a day dedicated to reading ebooks? Well, ebooks can be customized to each individual reader, they are great for the environment, and they can be downloaded anytime, anywhere. I could keep going, trust me, but I’ll practice some restraint.

Today, OverDrive employees have the opportunity to tidy their (work-from-home) desks an hour early and dive into a good book. Here are some of the great reads that our team have chosen to celebrate:

An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

Chosen by: Andi, Public Relations Specialist

From the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us comes an electrifying new book about doubt, passion, and just how much you can trust someone.

Book of the Little Axe by Lauren Francis-Sharma

Chosen by: Renee, Director of Marketing Services

Ambitious and masterfully-wrought, Lauren Francis-Sharma’s Book of the Little Axe is an incredible journey, spanning decades and oceans from Trinidad to the American West during the tumultuous days of warring colonial powers and westward expansion.

*This title was chosen as the Libraries Transform Book Pick. Readers at U.S public libraries can borrow Book of the Little Axe without wait lists or holds from September 14 – 28. Find out more about this year’s Library Transform Book Pick here.
