"THE GREAT GATSBY may be the most popular classic in modern American fiction...Though THE GREAT GATSBY runs to fewer than two hundred pages, there is no bigger read in American literature."- from A Reader in Beaufort

     Copies of “The Great Gatsby” will be released throughout the county. You may find one in your doctor’s waiting room or at the hairdresser’s. You may spot one in a shopping cart in the parking lot of the grocery store, or on a chair in your favorite restaurant. These paperback books are part of The Big Read.

 

     When you find a copy of the book you are encouraged to become part of BookCrossing. BookCrossing is the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others who then place the book in another public place. Each book will be labeled with a unique code. Go to the BookCrossing website (http://www.bookcrossing.com) and enter the BCID (look inside the front cover) in the yellow boxes to record your finding of the book or you can call the library at 728-2050 to have your book reading recorded.
