Starting today until March 31 users from over 21,000 libraries around the world can borrow the eBook and audiobook of the #1 New York Times best selling American Sniper without any wait lists or holds. The Big Library Read creates a digital “global book club” for two weeks as readers can experience the same title together and share their thoughts on our discussion board.

Your users can also listen to our exclusive interview with Taya Kyle, the widow of author Chris Kyle, as a part of our Professional Book Nerds podcast to hear more about their story and learn about the version of Chris you may not see in American Sniper. Taya, who is also a New York Times best selling author, shared wonderful insight into their experiences both while Chris was serving and at home.

On the Big Library Read site users will also discover some great American Sniper read-alikes. You can add these and more to your digital collection and capitalize on the title popularity by creating a curated, featured collection. We’ve compiled a full list of titles in Marketplace for your readers to discover after finishing Chris Kyle’s memoir.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on American Sniper and our interview with Taya and we want to thank the thousand of libraries who are participating in this global reading event!
