Sync bannerAttention audiobook fans! May 7th is the kick-off for SYNC Summer 2015! For 14 weeks this summer, SYNC offers 2 FREE audiobook downloads, including a current title paired with a related classic title that may even be on your summer reading list.

This is a wonderful program sponsored by Audiofile Magazine and the audiobook publishers to introduce the joys of listening to the YA audience. I know I’ve said this before, but this program is one of the reasons I’m hooked on audiobooks.

The audiobooks are in MP3 format so they work for both Mac and PC. Titles are available through the OverDrive App – grab it now so you’ll be all set. Each download will be available for 7 days so don’t miss out on your free YA audiobooks from SYNC! After you download the audiobooks though you can listen to them at your leisure.

I recommend you text syncya to 25827 now so you are all set to receive alerts when the latest titles go live. Read more about the program at SYNC. Some of the titles have international restrictions – go here to see availability by country.
