If you haven't listened to an audiobook before, here's your chance to try them out.
If you're already a fan of audiobooks, here's your chance to pick up some titles you may have already wanted to listen to.
The annual SYNC: YA Literature Into Your Earbuds promotion, which gives away two complete audiobook downloads a week--a current young adult title along with a thematically paired classic or required summer reading title--starts up again next week, on May 7. Each audiobook is available for free for one week only, based on a set schedule, so take a look at the schedule and start planning.
This year's lineup includes:
- Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
- Dodger by Terry Pratchett
- X by Ilyasah Shabazz with Kekla Magoon
- The Living by Matt de la Peña
- The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger
- Monster by Walter Dean Myers
- and more than 20 other audibooks
You must have the (free) OverDrive app or software installed on a smartphone, tablet, or computer to download the audiobooks, and based on previous years' procedures, I'm assuming you'll also have to supply an email address. But did I mention the audiobooks are free?
