Eyes.On.YouThe Big Library Read program is back! From now through June 23rd, Warren Public Library card holders will be able to borrow and enjoy the eBook  Eyes on You by Kate White.

Eyes on You is a psychological thriller, and is perfect for those who like books by James Patterson and Janet Evanovich. It tells the story of Robin Trainor, who after a messy divorce has rebuilt her career. But then things begin to go wrong: she receives threatening notes, defaced pictures, and a doll that looks just like her—but with its eyes gouged out—left on her desk chair. Suddenly, she is in a race to find out who is doing this  and it becomes terrifyingly clear that the person responsible isn’t going to stop until Robin loses everything that matters to her . . . including her life. For a sample, click here.

If you’ve never tried downloading eBooks  from the library, now is a great time to start. They work on a variety of devices, including PCs, Macs, Kindles, Nooks, iPads, and even smartphones! The best part: there are no late fees!

You can download Eyes on You here from our eBooks site. For help with downloading eBooks, click here, or come into any branch. We hope you will take part in The Big Library Read!
