SYNC was super successful in 2014, so they are back with a *bang* for another year! Starting May 7th 2015, SYNC will give away two complete audiobook downloads for free each week – a current young adult title along with a thematically paired classic. Sign up for email or text alerts and be the first to know when new titles are available to download! Each title is only available to download for 7 days, but the best bit is once it’s downloaded, it’s yours to keep!
The titles are delivered through the OverDrive Media Console; I have this on my smartphone and tablet and already use it to “borrow” eBooks from my local library. Below is the full list of titles available, each title is linked to the download page on SYNC, and you can click here for samples of each one.
