Beginning today, May 8, 2013, Hachette Book Group joined the list of leading publishers allowing library lending of eBooks via OverDrive. This means making its entire catalog of more than 5,000 eBooks available to libraries, such as East Central Regional Library, to license for our Digital Library.
Hachette eBooks will follow the one-copy/one-user lending model, and there will be no checkout or term limits for the titles on the OverDrive platform. Hachette eBooks will also be available the same day as when the book is released in print. New titles will, however, be priced at 300% markup from the same item in print format.
Some of ECRL’s most popular authors are published by Hachette Book Group. They include:
· David Baldacci
· Sandra Brown
· Carol Higgins Clark
· Michael Connelly
· Nelson DeMille
· Dorothy Garlock
· Karen Kingsbury
· James Patterson
· Nicholas Sparks
Watch for some of these popular titles to hit East Central Regional Library’s Digital Library soon!
