YES, I KNOW I’M YELLING, BUT I’M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!!
Sync has started their summer audiobook program *really* early this year. For those of you who haven’t heard of this before, every Thursday, from today through August 13th, the fantastic folks over at Sync will make two audiobooks available for download. Typically one is a contemporary YA book and the other is a classic book that fits thematically. Each set of books is available for download for only one week, so from Thursday to Wednesday (but once you download them, the books are yours to keep).
The first set of books is up and available today through May 13th. The contemporary book is Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The classic book is Daphne duMaurier’s Rebecca, which is one of my all time favorites.
For the full list of books that are available this year, pickup a flyer from in front of Mrs. Neft’s desk or go to Sync’s list. You can listen to excerpts from each book here. On the website you can also sign up for text or email alerts to remind you to download each week’s book. You can also “like” them on Facebook.
To download the books, you’ll need the Overdrive app (desktop, phone, tablet apps area all available here). You’ll also need to enter your name and email address for each title you download. I’ve been downloading books through this program for 4 years now and I don’t get junk mail from it.
