Audio Book Sync Is On Again This Summer!


Every summer, the AudioFile, the audio book magazine, sponsors Sync. Each week they offer a free recent young adult audio book (downloaded through the Overdrive application), and a matching free classic audio book. This is a great way to introduce kids to the joy of audio books.  I've been a fan for many years. I began listening to audio books when I discovered that, no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't keep up with all the books I wanted to read.  I began to listen to audio books during my commute to work. Later I listened when I was doing yard work as well.

This summers free offerings look great, and include three titles on my want to read list as well as a personal favorite - Skulduggery Pleasant.

Just make sure you download the books when they are available. If you wait too long, you won't be able to get them.  I signed up for the texting service this year, and they will text me when each new book is ready for downloading.
