SYNC YA Literature into Your Earphones

2 FREE Audiobook Downloads Each Week
July 1 - September 1, 2010
Teens and other readers of Young Adult Literature have the opportunity to download and listen to bestselling titles and classics this summer.  Each week from July 1 - September 1, SYNC is offering two FREE audiobook downloads. The audiobook pairings will include a popular YA title and a classic that connects with the YA title's theme.  For example, Frank Beddor's The Looking Glass Wars, a popular series with strong allusions to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, will be paired with Lewis Carroll's classic.  There's no required sign-up, personal details, or credit card information required.

If you miss the week for an audiobook that you want you may also be able to borrow the audiobook through Merrimack Valley Library Consortium's (MVLC) Overdrive, using your library card barcode. 

SYNC will also invite listeners (13+) into online discussions with librarians, publishers, authors, narrators, and other listeners about the featured books.  Visit SYNC to download the following books to your player to take wherever summer might lead you.
