Attention audiobook fans! Today is the kick-off for SYNC Summer 2012! For the next 10 weeks SYNC offers 2 FREE YA and Classic audiobook downloads.
This is a wonderful program sponsored by Audiofile Magazine and the audiobook publishers to introduce the joys of listening to the YA audience. I’ve participated for the last three years and have listened to audiobooks such as Shiver, The Hunger Games and Beastly. And there are a lot of great classic offerings too to satisfy any reading requirements or to revisit a favorite. I’m excited for this year’s line-up and it looks like there’s something for everyone.
The audiobooks are in MP3 format so they work for both Mac and PC. All you need is Overdrive Media Console to download and your favorite listening device. Each download will be available for 7 days so don’t miss out! After you download the audiobooks though you can listen to them at your leisure.
And many of the titles are available to international listeners – 14 out of the 20 titles have no international restrictions. Click here to find out more details about international availability by title.
