I don't know about you, but I love free stuff. I mean, it's free! What's better than that?? And when the aforementioned "free stuff" = audiobooks, well, I could just die and go to book lovers heaven. (Yes, I love them that much!)
Needless to say, when I happened to come across a post (via Gaby's site) promising information on how to get free audiobooks, well, you know what happened. I died and when to book lovers heaven. But I came back just to share with everyone on how to get free audiobooks, too. Aren't I sweet?
So here's the info:
The program is called SYNC. But what is SYNC, you ask? Well, I was just getting to that.
• SYNC is an online community that seeks to build the audience for audiobooks among readers 13 and up.
• Each week, SYNC will give away 2 FREE downloads--a popular Young Adult title paired with a Classic title that appears on Summer Reading lists--starting July 1 through September 1, 2010.
• SYNC is hosted by Audiobook Community, a new social networking site for the discovery of audiobooks.
• Listeners can choose to join a conversation about these titles with authors, narrators, publishers, librarians, and other listeners. (Listeners are not required to join Audiobook Community to follow the conversation on SYNC nor to download FREE titles from SYNC.)
If you want to know more about SYNC or how to download your free audiobook(s), please visit http://www.blogger.com/www.audiobooksync.com/ for more information.
Now, on to the important stuff... the free audio books. Below, I've listed the two audiobooks that will be released each week.
Audiobook downloads available as MP3s
Available August 19 - August 25
Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
I can't wait! Some of these books I've never read. And I absolutely love that they are pairing each Young Adult title with a Classic title. It's amazing opportunity for teens and adults alike to take advantage of this free program.
So, please visit the site. And share the info, if you like. I'm going to download my free audiobooks right now! Have a great weekend everyone!!
