Library Launches Online Book Club

Finding a Great Book to Read Just Got Easier

So many books, so little time. For all you busy people, the library
is offering a new service: an Online Book Club that delivers books
electronically. Each day, Monday through Friday, subscribers will
receive a portion of a book that takes about 5-minutes to read.
You'll be able to read two or three chapters from a book during the

You don't even need a library card to sign up and start reading. All
you need is an email address. If you like a book, you can check it
out of the library. If it is a book the library doesn't own, we'll
get it for you.

With 11 book clubs to choose from, there's something for everyone.
Patrons can read General Fiction, Nonfiction, Romance, Business,
Science Fiction, Horror, Good News, Teen, and Mystery. You can also
listen to Audio Books in your email and there's even a Pre-
Publication Club. You can start reading books in your email before
they're even published. Now you can discover great books, even if
you're too busy to visit the library.

Currently subscribers are reading the following books:

Fiction club: Baker Towers by Jennifer Haigh
Nonfiction club: Our Mother's War by Emily Yellen
Teen club: 24 Girls in 7 Days by Alex Bradley
Business club: Then We Set His Hair On Fire by Phil Dusenberry
Romance club: Soul Magic by Karen Whiddon
Good News club: A Bride Most Begrudging by Deeanne Gist
Science Fiction club: Broken Crescent by S. Andrew Swann
Mystery club: By a Spider's Thread by Laura Lippman
Horror club: Unspeakable by Graham Masterson
Audio club: Joy Comes in the Morning by Jonathan Rosen
Pre-Pub club: What Angels Fear by C.S. Harris

Next week 11 different books will be featured.

You can sign up for the service at the library or by clicking the
"Online Book Clubs" link on our home page at www.hampton.lib.nh.us
You can also forward the emails to your friends. It's a great way to
stay in touch with friends and relatives that live in other parts of
the country.

Why not sign up today and give it a try?
