Macmillan warmed up to the idea about having their digital books available for loan in public libraries back in March. They currently have over 1200 books up for grabs via their Minotaur imprint. The publishing company is obviously pleased with the pilot project and has just committed hundreds of new titles from another one of their imprints, Entangled Publishing.
Overdrive, Axis 360 and 3M all do business with Macmillan and will be offering a number of great titles very soon. You will be able to get access to a number of New York Times bestselling novels, including – Wrong Bed, Right Guy by Katee Robert, Seducing Cinderella by Gina L. Maxwell, and The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst, as well all backlist titles since the publisher’s inception in July of 2011.
“Entangled has always been a huge supporter of libraries, and we are excited to be bringing our titles to this important community resource through Macmillan,” says Entangled publisher, Liz Pelletier. “This new program will allow our books to get into hands of millions through the venerable library system and that’s what every publisher and author wants–to have their books discovered and loved by readers.”
