Borrow an E-Book From the Alexandria Library

over the shoulder of a person reading an e-book and drinking coffee.

After a long day, there’s nothing better than unwinding with a page-turner that will keep you engrossed until the very end. If this sounds good to you, here are three bestselling e-books from the Alexandria Library that you can enjoy from your home at our Kingstowne apartments:


Released in January 2020, Blindside is the latest book from famed author James Patterson. When the mayor of New York realizes his daughter is missing, he enlists the help of Detective Michael Bennett. As one father helping another, the detective jumps on the case. But he soon finds himself in the center of a triangle anchored by the FBI, NYPD, and a transnational criminal organization. While Detective Bennett is an honorable man, when innocent lives are at stake, survival must come first.

The Great Alone 

Called a “stay-up-all-night tale of love and loss,” The Great Alone tells the story of Ernt Albright. A former POW, he returns from the Vietnam War a different man. After losing job after job, Ernt moves with his wife and teenage daughter to Alaska, where they’ll live off the grid in the country’s last true frontier. At first, they’re happy in their new community filled with strong men and even stronger women. But as winter and eighteen hours of darkness approach, the family learns the terrible truth. They are on their own. 

Camino Island 

Bookstore owner Bruce Cable makes his money as a prominent dealer in rare books. But only a handful of people know his dark secret. He sometimes dabbles in the black market of stolen manuscripts and books. When young novelist, Mercer Mann, is asked to infiltrate his close circle of literary friends, she agrees. But it isn’t long before she learns too much. Camino Island keeps readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. 

Along with the Alexandria Library, our apartments in Kingstowne also offer a closeness to premier shopping and dining destinations. If you’re looking for a place to call home, please contact us.
