What’s that sound? A digital audiobook!

Audiobook lovers rejoice: We’ve just added several new digital audiobooks to our Overdrive catalog. The even better news is that publishers are starting to include both audio formats (WMA for Windows and MP3 for pretty much any device), so many of the audiobooks you can find through Overdrive should actually work on any device you use.

Of course, we’ve added a lot of new e-books too, which means more choices and shorter waits if you’re on the hold list. (To see the e-books we added last month, check out “New e-books in Arlington’s Overdrive Advantage collection.”) Just a few of the e-books added this month include Amy Tan’s The Valley of Amazement, Janet Evanovich’s Takedown Twenty, John Grisham’s Sycamore Row, Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings, and Gary Shteyngart’s memoir Little Failure.

Remember, we’re here to answer all of your audiobook and e-book download questions. Come to the reference desk in person (bring your reading/listening device), give us a call or e-mail, or check out the Overdrive Help page.
