Free Audio Book Summer

25 Jun

Last year Audiobook Community/AudioFile Magazine offered two free audio books for YA readers every week via their SYNC program. It was a really cool deal with some newer stuff and some classics (which is good for all that high school summer reading they have kids doing now). Last year I was able to download Beastly, Frankenstein, The Angel Experiment, Wondrous Strange, and others.

Well this summer they are doing it again. First up is Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver and William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Just like all other Overdrive Media downloadable audiobooks they can be put into iTunes and then played on your iPod.

To download any of the titles just visit the SYNC site here.
