Two FREE Audiobooks Each Week All Summer

Two FREE audiobook downloads each week.

Teens and other readers of Young Adult Literature will again have the opportunity to listen to bestselling titles and required reading classics this summer. Each week from May 30 - August 15, 2013, SYNC will offer two free audiobook downloads. The audiobook pairings will include a popular young adult (YA) title and a classic that connects with the YA title's theme and is likely to show up on a student's summer reading list. 

For example, Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys (Scholastic Audiobooks), the first book in a bestselling series about a group of teenagers searching for the supernatural ley lines, will be paired with the Latino classic of magical realism, Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima (Recorded Books).

Here is the complete list of 2013 titles and when they will be available.

The first two books are available NOW.  Just visit Sync to begin the download process.  You will need to enter your name and email address for each book, and you will need the Overdrive Media Console to download them.  Overdrive is free, and should also enable you to download audiobooks and ebooks from your local library.  Unlike those library books, these audiobooks have no expiration date - they are yours to keep and listen to whenever you like!  (which is good because I still haven't listened to all the books from last summer)  They are, however, only available for a limited time.  You will have one week to download each pair. 

TEXT syncya to 25827 for alerts each week when the SYNC titles are released or visit Sync to sign up for email alerts so you won't miss any of these great books.
