Edinburgh Libraries are taking part in Together We Read, a digital book club, being run by participating UK libraries from 11–25 May 2017. The club connects readers by them reading the same ebook in OverDrive, at the same time. Once you begin reading, you can connect with other readers and join the conversation on the discussion board.
We are delighted that the first Together We Read title is a Scottish crime novel by a Scottish author – Whisky from Small Glasses by Denzil Meyrick. The book centres on DCI Jim Daley, who is sent to investigate a murder after the body of a woman is washed up on an idyllic beach on the West Coast of Scotland. Far away from urban resources, he finds himself a stranger in a close-knit community. Love, betrayal, fear and death stalk the small town, as Daley investigates a case that becomes more deadly than he could possibly imagine.
There will be no waiting lists and no holds for this ebook – simply download the book via the OverDrive app or start reading in your browser. Find full instructions on how to use OverDrive on our Your Library website.
Check out the Together We Read site to see an interview by the author; to download a discussion sheet for hosting your own book group or to join in with the chat about the book on the discussion board.
