The most important thing to note, which is not mentioned below,1 is that these books don't expire like the e-audiobooks you get from the library. So, be sure to check in each week to download the books even if you don't think you'll get around to reading them right away.
Sync offers free audiobook downloads of Young Adult and Classic titles this summer!
June 23 - August 17, 2011
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 from June 23 to August 17, 2011, 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 a student's summer reading lists. For example, Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, the first book in a popular series with strong allusions to Romeo & Juliet, will be paired with Shakespeare's classic.
