Books I’ve Read – 2016

I guess to be precise, I “listened” to these books using an app called OverDrive. It’s an app that you can use your library card to check out books on an iphone, ipad, etc for 14 days. You can check out audio or text versions. Best of all…it is free! Plus, I can increase the speed of the book and listen to it 2x speed, which makes it sound like a chipmunk, but increases the number of books I can get through in a year.
