SYNC Audiobooks: 2 Free Downloads Each Week
June 3, 2014  Teens and other readers of Young Adult Literature will have the opportunity to listen to bestselling titles and required reading classics this summer. Each week this summer, from May 15 - Aug 13, 2014, SYNC will offer two free audiobook downloads.

The audiobook pairings will include a popular young adult (YA) title and a classic that connects with the YA title's theme and is likely to show up on a student's summer reading lists. For example, James Patterson's Confessions of a Murder Suspect (Hachette Audio), will be paired with Agatha Christie's Murder at the Vicarage (Harper Audio).

Titles are delivered through the OverDrive Media Console. You can prepare for the program by downloading the software to your desktop and whichever device you anticipate listening on.

To find out when you can download titles to listen to on the run this summer, visit or text syncya to 25827.
