Audiobook SYNC, the yearly summer reading program designed to help teens avoid the summer slide, is now live. Each week from now until August 17th, SYNC will give away two paired audiobook titles that readers can download for free. These titles are yours to keep and are perfect for teen readers and adults alike. Each Thursday morning will be updated with the week’s current titles so be sure to bookmark the website. You can also sign-up to get notifications of when the FREE audiobook downloads are available*. You can receive alerts by text message, email newsletter, at their website.

To promote the launch of the SYNC program this week’s Professional Book Nerds Podcast is all about audiobooks as well. You can subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, on Android devices, or you can listen to it directly in your browser.

SYNC is dedicated to introducing the listening experience to the teen audience and demonstrates that Required Reading can be completed by listening. The program is sponsored by AudioFile Magazine and titles are delivered through the OverDrive app. Download the app in advance to whichever device you anticipate listening on and be ready to go!
