Also if you have a Fayette County Public Library card, you have access to Hoopla for online reading and audiobooks. I just read "Ghost" by various authors and am listening to "Impostors" by Scott Westerfeld. You "Divergent" fans would like this one! (Use the last 4 digits of your library card number to login.)
