    FYI For y'all with e-readers or audiobook lovers!

    The army (and I'm pretty sure every branch) lets you log into overdrive through your SOs AKO (or make an account at your library) and you can borrow almost any book it seems for your ereader.

    I just discovered this and am super pumped to all the books I can read without buying them

    I just googled army ebooks and it comes up for their site

    thanks for letting me know...even though I have an e-reader it is difficult to put down a "real" book and use it...maybe this way I'll use it more often

    I have my own AKO account through my husband. Is it possible for me to access it on my own you think?

    I love this about the library! I don't use DH's AKO account, I used my MWR/library card number to make an account online. Suuuuper easy, though the post library has a pamphlet that can explain how to access and use the system.

    No one is guaranteed happiness. You can pursue it, but if you happen to find success along the way on that road to happiness, Conservatives believe you should not be demonized or penalized for it.
