SYNC Audiobook downloads

An awesome website/program has been set up this summer. SYNC is offering up one classic book (like Treasure Island) and one new/modern YA book (like Wondrous Strange) as an audio book download each week. Each set of books is available for download for seven days (from Thursday through Wednesday). Listening to some of the classic books is not only a great way to find out you actually might like them but probably a way to help with your summer reading list :-D

They're in MP3 format and play through the OverDrive player (like the MP3 audio books you can download from a lot of libraries--if I ever find the place I found that lists which states/counties allow what, I'll link it.). I believe they'll also play on MP3 players, too, though.

Here's a list of just some of the books that are available:

Available July 15 - July 21
Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

Available July 22 - July 28
The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Available July 29 - August 4
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Lottery by Shirley Jackson

(How? On the SYNC page I linked to there's a page for readers and a page for librarian's & bloggers that explains how it all works and gives links to the downloads, etc)

This is something I'm going to be taking advantage of and I hope some of you will as well!

  1. Thanks so much for putting this out there; we're so excited at the response Sync is getting. I hope you've also signed up for the Audiobook Community so you can talk about the titles and direct some new traffic to your blog!

    p.s. Love the shoes in your avatar :)
