2 Free Audiobook Downloads Each Week
July 1 - September 1, 2010

Teens and other readers of Young Adult Literature will have the opportunity to listen to bestselling titles and classics this summer. Each week from July 1 - September 1, SYNC will offer two free audiobook downloads.

The audiobook pairings will include a popular YA title and a classic that connects with the YA title's theme and is likely to show up on required summer reading lists. 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.

SYNC will also invite listeners (13+) into online discussions with librarians, publishers, authors, narrators, and other listeners about the featured books.
