‘Cowboy Pride’ selected for Big Library Read digital book club at library

By Staff | Jul 4, 2018

Inspired by “Pride and Prejudice,” author Lacy Williams has introduced a new dual love story with a Wild West twist. “Cowboy Pride” has been selected for the next Big Library Read.

From July 9-23, Captiva Memorial Library users will be able to borrow the eBook format of the title with no wait lists or holds. Readers can take part in the two-week program by visiting lcls.overdrive.com/ or by downloading the Libby app.

Williams is the USA Today bestselling author of the acclaimed “Wyoming Legacy” and “Cowboy Fairytales” series. “Cowboy Pride,” the third installment of “Wyoming Legacy,” is a love story where hearts and emotions get tangled, and first impressions count. It’s a contemporary romance that serves as an escape from reality for readers.

“Current technology allows us nearly unlimited access to information, including books. So many books,” Williams said. “I’m not sure at what age I first read ‘Pride and Prejudice.’ My early teens, probably. I’ve read it numerous times through the years. My first fur-baby was a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Mr. Bingley. So, from one (Jane) Austen lover to another, allow me to say, ‘You are too generous to trifle with me.’ Thank you for reading this book.”

Big Library Read is an international reading program that connects millions of readers around the world simultaneously with an eBook through the library. Readers can join an online discussion about the book at BigLibraryRead.com. The free program runs for two weeks and to get started reading, all that is needed is a Lee County Library System library card.

“Cowboy Pride” can be read on all major devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Chromebook and Kindle, without worry about wait lists or holds. The title will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and there are no late fees.
