I remember when I graduated from high school and the epic summer after graduation. I will most definitely be aging myself here, but one of the things I remember most is the music my friends and I listened to. My best friend would burn CDs full of our favorites bands and songs.

Back in April, I picked up the book, well an audio eBook actually, Delirium.

I get it. What I am trying to share with you is the wonderful resource of Overdrive.
