Free SYNC Audiobook Downloads


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 May 30 - August 21, 2013, SYNC will offer two free audiobook downloads!

Weekly Audiobook Pairings

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, Anna Banks’ Of Poseidon will be paired with William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

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