FREE Audiobooks for Summer 2016

SYNC ~ Returning May 5

SYNC is a program that gives away TWO complete audiobook downloads each week throughout the summer program — a current Young Adult title paired thematically with a Classic or Required Summer Reading title.

This is an outreach from the Audio Publishers Association. It’s entirely free – all you have to do is enter your name and email address in order to download the two titles each week.

I took advantage of this opportunity for the previous two years, and I can vouch that they do not use your email address for anything other than an authentication. You do not receive a confirmation email, or any promotional emails either.

You can also get a text notification when the new week’s books are available to download. Text syncYA to 25827 for title updates and alerts when the new books are out.

  1. I love the SYNC program, but to be honest, I’m kind of disappointed in this year’s choices. Very few are already on my reading wishlist, and of the ones I haven’t seen before, few are tempting me enough to spend the time on them. The exceptions might be On the Jellicoe Road, I’ll Give You the Sun, Egg and Spoon, and Words in the Dust. (I’ve already got more nonfiction and lecture series to listen to than I can get through in a couple of years.) Oh, well, I’ve still got a few from a year or two ago that I haven’t listened to yet!
