Dayton Metro Library is participating in OverDrive’s Big Library Read, the world’s largest digital book club. The riveting fantasy novel Reverie is the selected title, available in ebook and audiobook format with no wait time and no late fees, November 2 - 16. Anyone with a Dayton Metro Library card or eCard can borrow the title at physically or through OverDrive’s Libby app.
Reverie, Ryan La Sala’s debut novel, is suspenseful fantasy about what happens when the secret worlds people hide within themselves come to light. Main character Kane Montgomery can't remember anything since an accident robbed him of his memories. When three of his classmates claim to be his friends and the only people who can tell him what's truly going on, he doesn't know what to believe or who to trust. This compelling book is appropriate for teen and adult readers alike.
“Will this be the book that gets us to one million digital checkouts this year? It’s possible!” said Holly Varley Richardson, Collection Development Director. “We’re on track to reach that milestone for the first time in a single year. A fantasy novel full of intrigue might be very popular right now,” she added. “What better way to escape reality than getting lost in a good book?”
The Big Library Read is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for popular ebooks, audiobooks and magazines. It connects millions of readers around the world with one digital book to read and discuss. Reverie is the 23rd selection for the program, which began in 2013 and takes place three times per year.

Through Libby, readers can also “send to Kindle” [US libraries only]. The title will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and there are no late fees.
