Literary Classics Online Book Club from Recorded Books/One Click Digital

Recorded Books, the largest independent publisher of unabridged audiobooks and provider of digital content to the library market, announces the launch of a new online book club, The Literary Classics.

The book club launches in January with Hamlet.

This online book club is tailored for people who enjoy reading and talking about classic literature. Six books are selected each year for reading and discussion. Although all of the titles chosen for The Literary Classics are available to libraries free of charge through the OneClickdigital platform, patrons can participate in the online discussion regardless of where they sourced their reading materials.  (*Note, Oldsmar Library only subscribes to the digital audiobook service from OneClickDigital, but the books they are selecting are in the public domain & free ebooks are available elsewhere, such as from OverDrive or Project Gutenberg)

Each book is featured for a two  month period. During the first month, participants read the book while checking out fun facts about the title on the club’s social - media outlets. The second month is prime time for discussion, discourse, and debate with questions on Facebook, Twitter, and the blog.
