The Summer Reading for 2016 is Get in The Game. I'd love to get ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT into the hands of kids reading for the theme. The only way to do that through public libraries is through Overdrive.
Here's an overview of how to get a "digital only" book from your library.
With the influx of "digital only" and "digital first" books on the
market, how does a library stay current? I've been approached recently
by several YA librarians who have asked about getting Any Way You Slice
It into their kids' hands, so I've done a bit of research.
digital books are going to be available through Overdrive. Overdrive is
a giant online clearinghouse of books, in their digital format. The
thing is...your library STILL has to purchase the digital title from
Overdrive in order to house it on their own virtual shelves. Just as you
would recommend they purchase a physical copy of your favorite title,
you can request they purchase a digital title.
Consider doing this for all your favorite digital books at your local library.
Here's how it works:
1. Go to Overdrive and sign in: https://www.overdrive.com/
2. Search for your own library/library consortium and save it as a
favorite library, then click on the library name to search what's available in their list of digital
3. You will need your library card, so it must be library to which you have a card!
4. Put Any Way You Slice It (or your favorite digital title--you can do
this as many times as you want) into the search engine. If it
doesn't come up in your library's collection, hit the button that says
"search for more titles" and the search engine will go to Overdrive and
pull up the cover.
5. Recommend it as a book your library or consortium should consider making available to their digital readers.
I'd love to get my book into the hands of teen and tween readers, and
having it available through libraries is a good way to start! But if
you're not inclined to recommend my book, consider any of the other
