Readers in the Rue Morgue

I didn't have an free e-books so I thought I would tell you how to win a free book from the Kansas City Public Library. (Just so you know, the mugs are super-cute this year. Luckily staff can participate in this Adult Reading program.)

The Kansas City Public Library invites patrons to become Readers in the Rue Morgue through the 2010 Adult Winter Reading Program (January 11 – March 14, 2010), focusing on the best in classic and contemporary crime fiction.

In addition to rewarding reading experiences, participation earns special prizes and opportunities to engage like-minded readers at book discussions, film screenings, and author events.


1) Read any five books between January 11 – March 14, 2010. Readers may reserve titles or other Library materials by logging into their online account or visiting the nearest Library location.

2) List those five titles on the online reading log and print out your receipt to receive a prize pack at the nearest Library location. You can also pick up a printed 2010 Adult Winter Reading Guide with a reading log form at all Library locations.

3) Attend any Winter Reading event, book discussion, or film screening. A completed reading log is not a prerequisite for attendance.

4) Join the Winter Reading group on for discussions with other Readers in the Rue Morgue.


Prize packs include a Winter Reading Program bistro mug, a paperback book, and an invitation to the annual Winter Reading Party (which will include a drawing for two gift baskets). Prizes may be received at any Library circulation desk.
