Audio Book SYNC

Sync-HeaderLove Audiobooks? Every summer SYNC provides FREE downloadable audiobooks of Young Adult books that are paired with classic books.

http://www.audiobooksync.com/

Here is the catch – two new books are available each week, but you have to download them THAT week or you have missed your chance.  Once downloaded, they are yours forever (or until you decide to delete them).

The program kicked off this week with “Beautiful Creatures,” by Kami Garcia paired with one of my all-time favorite books, “Rebecca,” by Daphne Du Maurier.

Scoring 28 free new reads for your ears is a great way to enjoy the summer!
